Just curious; did you actually find this, or found the pic??

I guess a 'Reynolds wrap cover'??

I notice that EMT is the wiring method used, which is not allowed in hazardous locations.
I hope that the box they used wasn't one of the "packed in oil" ones. If so the AHJ may make them change it out for one that never held any flammable liquids.

The oil provides cooling doesn't it? laugh

The oil could indeed be used for cooling...but let's try to avoid giving the EPA a reason to 'help us'.
