Oil and Dust Tight Consolets



Ralston’s C88 Series consolets are designed to provide a sloped surface of 30 or 60 degrees and to house instrument components, electrical and electronic controls. The desk top, machine, or pedestal mounted consolets provide protection against dust, dirt, and oil in industrial environments containing non-explosive dusts.



All consolets are made from 14 ga. hot rolled steel and have continuously welded seams ground to a smooth finish.


The door is sealed with oil resistant neoprene gasket and is secured to the sealed (blind) rivnuts in the enclosure with 10-32 captive screws on one side and a continuous piano hinge on the other side. Copper plated 8-32 grounding studs are provided on the box and door.


Paint Finish

All enclosures are phosphatized and finished inside and out with ANSI/ASA 61 grey polyester powder coating.




C88 enclosures are built to the requirements of NEMA Type 12 specifications for use with industrial controls in ordinary locations, and type 13 for an oil and dust tight enclosure.


C88 enclosures are CSA certified (file #1174410) and UL 508 Listed (file #136838) as a type 12 enclosure.


Special Orders

Custom units made from stainless steel or with special finishes, sizes or punching can be supplied on order.
