IP rating system is a universal scale that indicates the level of proven protection that a device has against environmental factors like solids as well as liquids. Fixtures that have the most superior capability to withstand water with high pressure and temperature have IP69K ratings. “IP” stands for Ingress Protection,” 6” indicates that the device can resist the ingress of dust while “69K” is an indication that it can resist the ingress of water with high temperature and pressure. With this capability, the high-pressure/temperature water used in washdowns will not enter the fixture in harmful amounts, or none at all.

LED fixtures with IP69K are ideal for environments where equipment need to be well sanitized since they cannot be damaged by the high temperature and pressure –water, other than being dust ingress resistant. Hygiene should be strictly observed in food processing industries, requiring equipment to be thoroughly sanitized. To enhance efficiency and safety, the installed LED devices, among other equipment ought to have a waterproof level that totally resists the damage by the rigorous cleaning procedures involving water with high pressure and temperature.
