B&R Enclosures is an Australian-owned company that has manufacturing plants in Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney employing over 300 people nationwide. The company has a stringent Quality Assurance system in place to ensure that their enclosures offer the best protection for mining equipment.
Australian mining regions experience some of the most extreme weather conditions. These areas are often prone to high dust, strong wind and torrential rain.
B&R Enclosures understands the stress these conditions can place on electrical enclosures and have designed their mining enclosures for longevity in such diverse environments.
The Pilbara SP has been created in consultation with the mining industry and is a robust enclosure with a specially designed sloping roof. These enclosures were originally designed to suit the Pilbara region in the north-west of WA, one of the harshest environments in Australia.
In this region an enclosure must be sufficiently robust to withstand weather extremes from harsh desert to periodic cyclonic conditions. However, it is well suited for many other locations requiring a robust enclosure solution.
Rated to IP66 for total protection against the ingress of dust and strong jets of water, the Pilbara SP enclosure is constructed from marine grade 316 stainless steel with a zinc-coated option to eliminate any corrosion or safety hazards.
Ben Bridges, Product Marketing Manager for B&R Enclosures believes it is B&R’s focus on understanding the customer’s needs that makes their enclosures withstand harsh environments.
“We have worked closely with our customers to find out exactly where the enclosure is going and created a solution that meets their project requirements. If our standard product range cannot meet these requirements then we can customise an enclosure to suit their needs,” he said.
