There are six different sizes, ranging from 300 x 200 x 150mm to 500 x 500 x 200mm.
Suitable applications include corrosive environments, such as those found in the chemical and petrochemical industries, and environments where strict hygiene is required, for example, the agro food sector. Use is foreseen in hospitals, dental pracives, veterinary practices and food manufacturing.
The standard material is 304 stainless steel, with marine grade 316 stainless steel available on request for installations subject to salt water.
