HYGIENE TAKES TOP PRIORITY IN FOOD MANUFACTURING

07-05-2018

Hygiene is the top priority in the food and beverage industry, and its application covers all aspects of machinery design, including the cables and interconnection components. Lapp Australia has a comprehensive range of cables, connectors and accessories that meet strict international requirements.

These include cables tested and approved by Ecolab to withstand the chemical cleaning agents commonly used in the industry, and hygienically designed stainless-steel cable glands and conduits that have been tested and approved by the US Food & Drug Administration for use in food manufacturing.

The Lapp Robust portfolio of cables feature sheaths made from specially optimised TPE, which features enhanced resistance to bio-oils, fats, food acids and water.

Ölflex Robust power and control cables are available with VDE certification and UL certification, and testing to Ecolab standards confirm they can withstand regular cleaning with standard industrial cleaners and disinfectants.

Other cables in the series include Unitronic Robust low-frequency data network cables, Hitronic Robust optical data transmission cables, and Etherline Robust cables for Industrial Ethernet.

The Lapp portfolio also includes the Skintop Hygienic cable gland, which is made from stainless steel, with FKM elastomer used for the seals, and has no corners and edges to which food residues could adhere.

The Lapp hygienic portfolio is completed with a line of blue cable ties that incorporate a metal additive. This means that should any cable tie accidentally fall into (for example) a pot of yoghurt, it can be detected using a metal detector or X-ray machine.

Lapp Australia offers a full range of cables, connectors, conduits and cable glands that cater for the complex requirements of the food and beverage industry.

These proven and tested products provide solutions for every stage of the food and beverage manufacturing and distribution chain.
