What’s the most important
thing to bear in mind when designing systems for hygienic manufacturing
environments? Smooth, stainless steel surfaces might be one answer. But
more fundamentally, hygiene requires attention to detail.
Made from food-grade 316L stainless steel, SKINTOP® INOX features enclosed, sealed threads. And its exterior surfaces have no gaps or protruding features that can trap particulate or microbes. Even the numbers of tooling flats, which blend seamlessly with the surrounding housing surfaces, have been reduced to just two. SKINTOP INOX cable glands finally feature integral food-grade silicone o-rings for IP 68 protection at 5 bar.
Aside from their outward appearance and internal seals, the new hygienic glands meet the same high performance and ease-of-use standards as our other SKINTOP products. These include:
* Operating temperature range of -40° to 100° C.
* Wide clamping range 7 to 13 mm with M20 x 1.5 threads.
* Compliance with ISO 14159 standards for machinery hygiene.
The first SKINTOP® INOX models are intended for use in splash zones and not for direct contact with food or pharmaceuticals. Models for use in washdown and direct contact applications will be introduced soon.
