Fastenings for hygiene applications
The subject of hygienic design is given great emphasis at PFLITSCH. For this reason, PFLITSCH is continually expanding its range of products for hygiene applications and now offers new fastenings for the open Wire-tray Trunking system. These new types of fastenings allow hygienic design concepts to be completely implemented in machine making and plant engineering applications.
What are the challenges to be overcome in hygienic design?
A key aspect is preventing the build-up of dirt and colonies of bacteria. This is achieved through a minimalist design with smooth surfaces without horizontal areas, which ensures that deposits of contaminants or residues of cleaning fluids cannot form on them.
What is the special aspect of the PFLITSCH fastenings?
By using different sizes and designs of brackets and clips during installation, offsets to the wall of 20 mm, 50 mm or 100 mm can be achieved. The Wire-tray Trunking can be permanently connected to the fastenings by welding. This ensures cleaning can be done easily and effectively.
All components are manufactured from high-quality stainless steel in grades AISI 304 or AISI 316L and therefore fulfil the high requirements of the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Advantages of fastenings for hygiene applications:
- High-quality materials and minimalist design
- Trunking can be set at suitable offsets to walls and floors to allow easy and reliable cleaning
- Prevention of formation of dirt deposits and the build-up of bacteria
- Meets high requirements for corrosion resistance, particularly where corrosive cleaning agents and disinfectants are used
