Stahlin Enclosures Solved Abita Brewery's Critical Corrosion Problem

eTradeWire News/10648791
BELDING, Mich. - eTradeWire -- CASE STUDY:
Stahlin® Enclosures –- manufacturers of high performing fiberglass electrical and industrial enclosures --- announces the release of a new case study focusing on overcoming specific manufacturing obstacles directly related to an aggressive processing environment.

Abita's brewing facility literally has its own weather system. Due to constant moisture in the facility, some days have actual clouds in the top half of the building. The result is that ferrous metal enclosures corrode at a very high rate. Consequently, the plant-wide specification is to use nonmetallic enclosures in all areas. This contributes to Abita being a great proving ground for a lot of products, especially electrical enclosures.

All enclosures used are of NEMA 4X construction because of water, caustic, acid, and bleach that are regularly used during cleaning procedures. Longevity and cost are key factors however, Abita is also concerned with ease of workability.

The solution to those challenges is Stahlin® Enclosures. According to James Franklin, Abita's Plant Engineer, "Stahlin® non-metallic enclosures cost less; in addition, they are lighter weight so we save on shipping. Stahlin® performs factory modifications to our specs, but we also do a great deal of field modifications to accommodate distribution, starters, drives, and other automation. The enclosures are much easier to modify using conventional tools."
