Southco, Inc., a global leader in engineered access solutions, has expanded its successful line of E3 VISE ACTION® Compression Latches with a new version designed to resist intensive and forceful chemical cleaning procedures. Southco’s High Pressure Sealed E3 VISE ACTION® Compression Latch is sealed to withstand high-pressure, high-temperature wash-down procedures to meet hygiene requirements.

Southco’s High Pressure Sealed E3 VISE ACTION® Compression Latch is sealed to IP69K to prevent liquid ingress and is DIN EN1672-2 compliant, making it an ideal solution for applications where hygiene and cleanliness is essential. With its robust stainless steel construction, the High Pressure Sealed E3 resists harsh environments and chemicals typically used in food processing machinery and medical equipment applications.

The High Pressure Sealed E3 provides the same quick, secure closure as the standard E3 series, and delivers robust, vibration-resistant fastening. Additionally, the High Pressure Sealed E3 features the same panel hole prep as the standard series for easy retrofit and is available in a variety of grip lengths to provide optimal door closure.

Global Product Manager Loc Tieu adds, “The High Pressure Sealed E3 VISE ACTION® Compression Latch is designed to withstand heavy wash-downs where hygiene and easy cleaning procedures are of the highest importance. The new E3 latch provides the same consistent performance as our standard E3 Compression Latch series and offers best-in-class compression latching.”
