BREWING INDUSTRY: USER GUIDE TO QUICK-CONNECT, SWITCH-RATED, WATERTIGHT, INDUSTRIAL PLUGS FOR BREWHOUSE EQUIPMENT – FREE SAMPLES
Prevents exposure to live parts and arc flash, maintains NFPA 70E HRC=0.
Rated watertightness, up to NEMA 4X, is achieved as soon as the plug mates with the receptacle.
Plug & play simplicity allows any qualified employee to quickly connect and disconnect electrical equipment.
Standard and optional provisions make lockout-tagout easy.
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
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.
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.
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.
