AttaBox® Polycarbonate Enclosures Excel in Demanding Oil & Gas Applications

Oil and Gas Header

With their robust non-metallic design and impact and corrosion resistance, AttaBox enclosures are uniquely suited for use in the oil and gas industry, whether you're dealing with fossil fuels and natural gas, petroleum and crude oil, or emissions and renewable energy. Our high-performing polycarbonate industrial and electrical enclosures, perfect for indoor and outdoor use, are renowned for their ability to withstand harsh environments, combat corrosion, and reduce the risk of electrical or system failure which could be caused by damage or water ingress.

Specific applications for an electrical enclosure in the oil and gas industry include, but are not limited to:

  • Exploration and Production Control
  • Refineries and Petrochem Fabrication
  • IIoT – Industrial Internet of Things Connectivity
  • Remote Monitoring

Corrosion Resistance

Oil and gas applications require enclosures that protect sensitive equipment—such as oil pump systems, oil refining equipment, and processing equipment—from ingress and damage due to drilling, mud, dirt, windblown dust, water, oils, grease, and lubrication from industrial tools. NEMA 4X rated AttaBox polycarbonate enclosures exceed the material minimum for 4X applications and are built to withstand harsh environmental conditions as well as a wide range of petrochemicals and fluids found in oil and gas applications.

Crucially, AttaBox enclosures are not susceptible to rust or other forms of corrosion. Although stainless steel enclosures are often used in corrosion resistant applications, in some environments they are subject to degradation and damage by solid foreign objects, pitting, crevices, and stress-cracking, as well as intergranular, galvanic, and contact types of corrosion. AttaBox's polycarbonate material offers built-in corrosion resistance, a value-add that helps ensure the reliable, long-term protection of the valuable equipment housed inside.

Certification Compliance

Users of enclosures in the oil and gas industry require certified products that ensure safety, meet design and engineering specifications, and offer protection against liability and regulatory concerns. Such certifications allow customers to be confident that products will perform as intended in specific applications. AttaBox Enclosures are designed and third-party-certified by UL to meet a wide spectrum of NEMA (types) including 1, 3, 3R, 4, 4X, 6P, 12, 13, and IEC IP66 ratings to help ensure maximum protection of the customer’s electrical equipment housed inside.


Installations in oil and gas tend to be remote, making servicing and replacing equipment costly. The extreme durability of AttaBox polycarbonate enclosures helps reduce the risk of failure and downtime. These heavy-duty, lightweight products offer better or equivalent performance and lower maintenance costs when compared to stainless steel.


The AttaBox SelectRight program provides the broadest available offering of standard polycarbonate enclosures that are built to last right off the shelf. The AttaBox DeliverRight program ensures that products arrive when and where they are needed, backed by a one-year warranty against defects — the longest such assurance in the industry.

Easy Modification

All manner of modifications, including cutouts, holes, windows, vents, and the incorporation of accessories, can be easily achieved when working with AttaBox Enclosures and our ModRight modifications program. Using advanced technology, our custom-engineered modified enclosure process ensures that all customizations are achieved the customer’s exact specifications. This is a tremendous potential labor and cost savings compared to the relative difficulty and specialty tools needed to modify stainless steel.
