Brewery

Founders Brewing Co. portable pump carts are connected with Meltric Switch-Rated Plugs for their immeasurable amount of safety and plug-n-play capability, which reduces time spent connecting and disconnecting frequently moved equipment.

Watertight

Rated watertightness, up to NEMA 4X, is achieved as soon as the plug mates with the receptacle (DS & DSN). Competitive products require the user to remember to carefully tighten an additional plastic ring.

Mobile Generator power connections

Bells Brewery has the benefit of limiting downtime on their grain handling equipment, associated with maintenance and motor change-outs, since no hardwiring of connections is necessary.

Brewery

Meltric’s Decontactor plugs and receptacles are an approved ‘line of sight’ disconnect. Pressing the pawl on the receptacle (red dot) breaks the load and ensures the plug can be safely removed and LOTO applied on the inlet.

For the Brewing Industry

  • Safe to Make and Break Under Full Load, UL/CSA Switch-Rated
  • Ensure Safety for Maintenance Personnel
  • Reduce Downtime on Motor Changeouts by 50%
  • Ideal for Pumps, Motors and other Electrical Equipment

MAXIMUM SAFETY

Eliminate Sources of Arc Flash Exposure

Load making and breaking occurs in enclosed arc chambers, and the plug cannot be removed until after the connection has been safely broken. Once it is removed, the receptacle’s dead front prevents any unintended access to live parts.

Simplify Code Compliance

Decontactors are an approved NEC ‘line of sight’ disconnect, and by eliminating the sources of arc flash exposure, they ensure the electrically safe work condition required to comply with NFPA 70E/CSA Z462, without the need for cumbersome PPE.

INCREASED EFFICIENCY

Reduce Equipment Change-Out Time

When Decontactors are installed, qualified technicians can safely replace motors and other equipment with plug and play simplicity.

Simplify Process Monitoring

Decontactors are available with up to 5 auxiliary contacts. These contacts make last and break first, allowing engineers to combine control and power circuits in one connection.

LOWER COSTS

Eliminate Interlocks and Auxiliary Disconnects

Decontactors are designed and rated for disconnect switching. They eliminate the need for the expensive switches and interlocks which are required with other connection devices.

Provide Maximum Durability

Spring loaded, solid silver-nickel contacts provide superior conductivity, durability and corrosion resistance. Heavy duty casings offer great resistance to harsh environments.
