AttaBox® Enclosures Helps Branom Instrument Company Provide A Reliable Solution For Protecting Pump Sensor Controls

The Situation

Since 1947, Branom Instrument Company has been providing customers with best-in-class process instrumentation for control and monitoring of flow, gas and liquid analytics, level, pressure, temperature, and automation. Branom’s instrumentation solutions provide maximum precision, efficiency, and reliability. Branom depends on the proven performance of enclosures to house and protect sensitive instrumentation and controls.


The Challenge

A manufacturer turned to Branom Instrument Company for an application solution specific to providing level sensing for pump controls in a sump where wastewater effluent was collected from a painting and coating line. It was essential that instrumentation would be reliably protected from potentially harsh environmental factors. Additionally, safe housing for a flow meter and pH controller were required so that the customer could meet government and industry effluent regulations.

The Solution

Branom Instrument Company and its panel shop selected a 14” x 12” x 6” Heartland® Series enclosure with opaque cover from Attabox® Enclosures, world leaders in polycarbonate enclosures and a brand of Robroy Enclosures®.

According to Andrew Garcia, Outside Sales Engineer for Branom Instrument Company:

“Our customer needed a turnkey solution from us. Our panel shop mainly uses AttaBox® enclosures because of wide ranging sizes, accessories and availability. On their recommendation we selected AttaBox® because we found their enclosures to be of high quality, proven performance and competitively-prices. The Heartland® Series enclosure used enabled us to effectively house and protect a pH controller, data logger, relays, power supplies, a tower light, plus all electrical wiring. This provided a solution for exactly what our customer needed.”
