Our hygienic cable glands

blueglobe CLEAN Plus and Cleanplus – cable glands for the highest hygiene standards

Ever since hygiene safety has been a relevant topic in respect of mechanical and plant engineering for the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, we have played a key role in driving forward the development of high-quality hygienic solutions. We must stress that our hygienic solutions are not merely retro-optimised for use in hygienic environments; they are developed right from the outset to comply with the Hygienic Design guidelines of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG).

Having already created the first hygienic cable gland certified according to EHEDG guidelines, the blueglobe CLEAN Plus, we are now presenting its successor: the Cleanplus. Taking the proven design principle of the iF DESIGN AWARD-winning blueglobe CLEAN Plus as our starting point, we have further developed and improved its specific hygiene properties, universal product properties and ease of assembly.

With the new PFLITSCH Cleanplus hygienic cable gland, we offer machinery and plant manufacturers, and operators, the first solution to be EHEDG-certified in accordance with the new, more stringent requirements. The EHEDG requirements needed to be tightened after the standards for hygiene safety in production facilities were raised along with the increasing level of automation in the food, chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries.

blueglobe CLEAN Plus

PFLITSCH’s blueglobe CLEAN Plus was the first hygienic cable gland to be certified in accordance with the previous set of EHEDG guidelines.

  • Design principles founded on Hygienic Design criteria
    Prevent biological and chemical contamination and ensure easy cleaning through:
    › smooth surfaces
    › rounded spanner flats on the pressure screw
    › design without cavities, gaps and exposed threads
  • Sophisticated universal properties
    › Tightness of seal with protection rating IP 68 up to 15 bar, IP 69 and excellent strain relief
    › Standard operating temperature range from –40 °C to +85 °C
  • Ease of assembly
    › Simple and reliable assembly that saves time and money
    › Comprises just a few components
    › No special tools required
    › Same torque used every time to screw the pressure screw flush
  • Compact design
    Enables the glands to be used whenever installation space is limited
  • Impressive special versions, too
    The blueglobe CLEAN Plus is also available in Ex, EMC and high-temperature versions. In addition to the stainless steel version, we also offer a plastic version: the blueglobe CLEAN Plus Polyamide.

Cleanplus

The PFLITSCH Cleanplus is the first hygienic cable gland to be certified in accordance with the new, more stringent EHEDG requirements.

Thanks to a wider range of variants, the Cleanplus has a larger application spectrum, enabling it to meet customers’ requirements more precisely. In addition to the proven properties of the blueglobe CLEAN Plus, the Cleanplus offers the following additional product benefits:

  • Design principles founded on Hygienic Design criteria
    Like the blueglobe CLEAN Plus, but now with a partially lower overall height
  • Large, comprehensive sealing range
    › Sealing range from 3.5 mm to 23 mm
    › Sealing inserts of FDA-compliant material
  • Higher standard operating temperature range:  –55 °C to +180 °C
  • Improved ease of assembly: even easier and more reliable
    › No washer required
    › The special geometry of the sealing element prevents it from skewing under any circumstances
    › Impossible for the cable to twist inside the gland due to the detents on the sealing insert

Two systems – one goal: maximum hygiene safety

The Cleanplus and the blueglobe CLEAN Plus offer you two high-quality, top-notch solutions that stand for high process reliability and help to prevent product contamination and therefore production downtimes and product recalls.

Easy to clean thanks to their great tightness of seal and good resistance to corrosion, cleaning agents and aggressive chemicals, our hygienic cable glands can be used in all demanding applications. They have been designed, tested and certified in accordance with Hygienic Design guidelines (including the EHEDG standard, FDA (plastic components), GS-NV-2, GS-NV-6, DIN EN 1672-2:2009, DGUV riboflavin test “excellent”). In this way, we can provide plant operators with long-term planning security and transparency and reduce the TCO (total cost of ownership).
