Food industry

Highest safety and health protection requirements

The food industry is characterized by demanding environmental conditions and the highest technical requirements. That is why we focus on durability, tightness, cleanability and disinfectability in our material selection and design.

Thanks to specific material developments and designs, our reliable and effective components and systems avoid downtimes in the production process as well as recalls and health hazards for consumers.

Our claim: Hygienic. Safe. Clean.

Hygiene regulations, guidelines and certification programs

When it comes to hygiene, safety and cleanliness, we make no compromises in the food industry. Our products meet the highest requirements, strictest hygiene regulations, guidelines and certification programs for food safety and health protection. These include: FDA compliant materials, Hygienic Design (based on EHEDG), EG1935/2004, EU10/2011, protection class up to IP69K as well as Ecolab.

Our extensive range includes high-quality products that ensure the safety of people, even in potentially explosive atmospheres, both indoors and outdoors: ATEX/IECEx.

With our very good EMC shielding concept, we prevent electromagnetic interferences, which is increasing due to the steadily growing amount of electronic components.



Highest requirements for materials and design

Our focus in the product development process

The perfect interaction of material selection and design makes our products high-quality and safe. The focus is on cleanability, tightness up to IP69K, temperature, hydrolysis and media resistance as well as corrosion protection (stainless steel V2A and V4A, aluminum).

To avoid constructional weak points, we develop suitable materials and build our components in a hygienic design. We avoid steps, edges, furrows, dead spaces, rough surfaces and cracks so that no critical substances and no germs can be transferred. The smooth and polished surfaces are easy to clean and disinfect. We round corners and angles with a sufficient minimum radius of 3 mm. Dirt, food residues and water accumulation hardly stand a chance with us. Potential contaminations are clearly visible on our products.



Material resistance tests

Hygienic and health safety

Material resistance tests prove the hygienic and health safety of our products. To prevent damage to human health, our components and materials are characterized by high and reliable media resistance or material resistance with low wear. They are resistant to aggressive cleaning agents, acids and bases as well as oils and greases. Components made of plastic, stainless steel or aluminum ensure effective corrosion protection. But also temperature and hydrolysis resistance of the materials are part of it.

Quality and safety control is an important requirement to ensure the good reputation of food products. Proper Hygienic Design and maintenance of production equipment is a necessity to meet these requirements. To support the industry in these matters, the EHEDG has developed and published a wide range of practical instructions on suitable Hygienic Design in various areas of food production facilities and production infrastructure. We share these guidelines and are therefore a member of the EHEDG.

FDA compliant materials and Hygienic Design of the highest quality. Also customized.

Our unique FDA compliant range includes cable entry systems for feeding through cables and conduits with or without connectors, made of stainless steel or plastic.
