[Press] Introducing an Environmental Protection Cover to Protect Manufacturing Site Displays from Oil and Chemicals

Posted: May 25, 2015
Pro-face, the global leader in Human Machine Interface (HMI) and factory data communication solutions will soon release an optional dedicated "Environmental Protection Cover" to protect Pro-face interfaces installed on equipment at manufacturing sites from corrosion due to chemicals and oil mist used in factories.

In manufacturing sites that use chemicals and industrial oils, corrosion on various types of equipment eventually occurs due to extended use of these chemicals and oils. For this reason, periodic maintenance and equipment replacements were needed. However, by attaching Pro-face's environmental protection cover, corrosion's march can be halted, thus reducing the time and effort needed for maintenance.
