Rittal is an esteemed manufacturer of climate control solutions, globally recognised for engineering efficient and reliable products. Suited for applications in the food industry, its hose-proof hoods increase the protection category of standard filters, preventing moisture ingress in compliance with IP56 specifications.
Hose-proof hoods are protective accessories, designed to be mounted over cooling system entry or exit points. Their name derives from their primary application, in which they protect against the ingress of water from hoses. They feature a graduated design which directs the water safely around fan filters or intakes, preventing ingress into cooling systems.
Hose-proof hoods are particularly useful in settings in which surfaces are cleaned with jets of water. Applications within the food industry are common, as vertical surfaces often need to be thoroughly disinfected and rinsed with water. Hose-proof hoods also can be used to prevent the ingress of condensation and can be utilised in settings that experience fluctuating temperatures.
When considering a Rittal hose-proof hood, ensure the dimensions of your filter are compatible. Our selection can be configured to specify the external dimensions of the hood, the fan size, and the hood material.
