What is IP69K Rating?
The Ingress Protection (IP) rating system is an internationally recognized scale that relates to proven protection against environmental factors such as liquids and solids. The first number, references “protection from solids” which “6” represents “Dust tight. No Ingress of dust.” The second number, references “Protection against liquids” which “9” represents “Protected against close-range high pressure, high temperature spray downs.”
Thus, the IP69K rating provides protection against ingress of dust and high temperature, high pressure water – making products with this certification ideal for use in conditions where equipment must be carefully sanitized. In industries such as food processing, where hygiene and cleanliness is paramount, equipment must be able to withstand rigorous high pressure, high temperature wash-down procedures.
The IP69K rating is the highest protection available.
