Switchracks: Industrial Applications

Free-Standing Switchrack Assemblies are used in multiple scenarios. They are used outdoors and indoors, and they are also used:

  • To provide a complete motor control center in one integrated package
  • In damp, wet or corrosive locations such as sewage treatment plants, lumber mills, marine installations, and food preparation areas
  • In areas made hazardous due to the presence of flammable vapors or gases, such as petroleum refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants, gas gathering plants, pipeline compressor stations, and drilling rigs, both onshore and offshore
  • In areas where hazardous dusts are present, such as coal handling facilities, grain processing and handling plants, and certain food process industries

Electrical switchracks provide a complete motor control center in one integrated package.
