blueglobe CLEAN Plus Polyamid
First hygiene cable gland in PA plastic certified in accordance with EHEDG
As a leader in this technology, PFLITSCH is bringing the first hygiene cable gland in plastic to be certified in accordance with EHEDG requirements onto the market. Therefore, the blueglobe CLEAN Plus in polyamide meets the stringent requirements with respect to hygiene compatibility and cleaning of machine and system components – completely in accordance with the hygienic design principles.
The cable gland is particularly suitable for use in the following industries:
- The food and beverage industry
- pharmaceutical industry
- Chemical Engineering
What is essential in respect with Hygienic Design?
The design of products used in these areas must prevent e.g. the adherence of dirt particles, which can create conditions favourable to the build up of colonies of bacteria. This assumes that the components used must have no cavities, gaps and open threads. The cleaning agents and liquids used must run off the surfaces cleanly.
blueglobe CLEAN Plus in plastic for cables up to 23 mm diameter
The blueglobe CLEAN Plus in PA plastic (polyamide) will be produced initially as standard in sizes M16 to M32 for cable diameters of 7 mm to 23 mm. It impresses with the following features:
- smoothness and rounded edges of the surfaces in contact with the wrench
- high protection types IP 66, IP 68 (up to 15 bar) and IP 69K
- approved for a temperature range of -20 °C to +110 °C
- the sealing inserts and rings are manufactured in high-quality, food-compatible plastics with FDA approval
The cable gland has passed extensive Ecolab tests using commonly available cleaning methods. The blueglobe CLEAN Plus made of polyamide is resistant to most cleaning agents and disinfectants used in the food industry, acids and alkalis as well as condensed water.
