Armored Pushbutton Switch Sealing Boot Takes Aim at High Water Pressure Applications
Englewood, NJ - APM HEXSEAL is pleased to announce the expansion of its line of high-pressure, high-temperature pushbutton switch sealing boots designed to handle external pressures to 1,500 psi (103bar), and temperatures from -80°F to +400°F (-62°C to +204°C). The external actuator mechanism is armor plated with 300 series stainless steel that protects an internal elastomeric sealing membrane conforming to A-A-59588. Manufactured to stringent specs of MIL-DTL-5423, it is IP66/68 ingress rated and UL Recognized. These harsh environment specs make it an ideal candidate for extra protection, while converting an unsealed pushbutton switch's actuator to a rugged sealed actuator. Ideally suited for use in food, beverage, dairy and meat/fish packing processing plants, pharmaceutical and petrochemical plants, medical, military, marine and transportation equipment.
Combat ready for most harsh workplaces, HEXSEAL® Armored Switch Boots are now available in two versions: p/n 1238/1SS with a .750" diameter head, and p/n 1238/5 which features an oversize 1.250" diameter head; and p/n N-1030T toggle style silicone rubber boot covered with a bonded nickel-plated brass cap. All boots operate smoothly even with a gloved hand.
APM manufactures a wide range of high-performance switch, potentiometer and circuit breaker sealing boots that are compatible with most toggle, pushbutton, rotary and rocker style actuators. UL Recognized, millions are on active duty throughout industry and the military, maintaining reliability and prolonging the life of vulnerable control components throughout the world.
