Hello guys,

Do you know of anyone who sells aluminum cylindrical enclosures, around 4-5cm in diameter, 10-15cm in length? A kind of probe like enclosure.

Thanks,

David

Check the plumbing department of your local hardware store.

I can tell you neither Teko, Metcase, or OKW has any cylindrical enclosures, I have all their catalogs on paper here...

Thanks guys so far. I sent the link provided by Arnold to my coleague for evaluation. The point is to avoid as much machining as possible. And it's for a commercial product, so, I'm afraid that bottles, cans, wifi antena covers and other such hacks are not possible.

We are exploring also the various tubes and stuff - we'll probably take that path and do some extra machining. I was just hoping there's something like the picture in the attachment commercially available.

You could go looking for some standard extruded profiles that suit your needs and have them cut to the length you require then make the end caps. Some profiles might even have screw mounting holes in them if you get lucky.

The tube parts in Arnold's post are extruded.

Best not quote dimensions in cm- use millimeters.

As with anything else, we need specs.... like diam, wall thickness, finish etc, number of units, etc. We have a lot of 52mm thin wall tubing we use for our autogauges. (Check out the store at Mcnallyelectronics.com). Send the specs and ask for a quotefrom dave@mcnallyelectronics.com. We can make a nice machined aluminum end cap drilled for your connector, and alodine corrosion protection, etc. Heck, might as well talk about it... call Dave at 813-783-3361x231
