Award-winning cable glands developed according to Hygienic Design principles for added safety and time savings

EHEDG- and FDA-certified systems in stainless steel or polyamide

Are you looking for cable glands developed according to Hygienic Design principles for use in the food, chemical or pharmaceutical industry? PFLITSCH’s ingenious, certified systems made of stainless steel or plastic fit perfectly into your production environment thanks to their outstanding properties – with guaranteed EMC and explosion protection.

Developed for sterile environments and extreme temperatures

Hygienic cable glands from PFLITSCH help you seal cables hygienically in enclosures or machine components, even in sterile environments or at extreme temperatures from –55 to +180 degrees Celsius. Profit from easy assembly and installation coupled with a tight seal in operation, minimal build-up of dirt and resistance to even the most aggressive cleaning agents. That prevents production stoppages and reduces set-up times and downtime – for production plants that can be relied on to earn money.

Pioneers in Hygienic Design

PFLITSCH’s hygienic solutions were not optimised afterwards for use in hygienic environments; they were developed from the outset to comply with the guidelines of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG). We are pioneers in Hygienic Design and an active member of the EHEDG. Our blueglobe CLEAN Plus is the world’s first cable gland to be EHEDG-certified.

Winner of the REINER! Award 2021

The blueglobe CLEAN Plus, our low-priced hygienic cable gland made from polyamide and the first of its kind with EHEDG certification, secured 3rd place in the 2021 REINER! (CLEAN!) clean technology award from the renowned Fraunhofer Institute. Thanks to its outstanding properties, it is a crucial building block on the way to safe production processes.
