UNSEALED breakers are internally susceptible to damage and shorting from water, lubricants, dust, dirt, sand, salt spray, corrosive atmospheres, fungus and other damaging contaminants.
Even factory sealed circuit breaker actuator function is susceptible to ice and dust build-up. And, all circuit breaker panel-mounting cutouts are vulnerable to contaminant seepage including spilled soft drinks, coffee, etc.
APM's UL recognised Hexseal and E-Seel sealing boots provide complete and reliable, cost-effective, long-term protection.
How Hexseal and E-Seel boots protect
Working closely with circuit breaker manufacturers and users for more than 50 years, APM has developed an extensive line of tough, pliant silicone rubber panel seals that function harmoniously with the circuit breaker's manual and automatic operation and position status viewing.
UL 50 tested and recognised, the boots represent a convenient cost-effective method (boots are less expensive than a door/panel-mounted handle-operator) for adding exterior controls to a NEMA/IEC enclosure panel without compromising environmental integrity for the system while maintaining the highest IP Ratings.
Hexseal and E-Seel sealing boots are available from Switches Plus Components .
