Hygienic solutions for food & beverage and sterile environments

Cable protection solutions that save time and money

Dec. 06, 2021

Production processes or environments which are subject to wash-down or hygienic requirements need to consider cable management carefully. Given the increase in automation, cable protection becomes even more important to protect power and data cabling.

Cleaning regimes are an important and essential process to ensure the safety and quality of a company’s output and goods. Whilst machinery or plant is being cleaned or maintained, production or service output is zero therefore this time should be as effective as possible, without compromising safety and quality.


Flexicon is the leading solutions provider to protect your critical power and data cables in Hygienic environments from damage caused by mechanical, electrical, or environmental influences. Their products protect against the build up of microbes and bacteria and ensure that cleaning processes do not damage or compromise equipment operation. Applications including Food & Beverage, Machinery & OEM’s, Healthcare and Pharmaceutical industries all rely on the benefits of effective cable protection.

  • Smooth finish: eliminate build up of bacteria & micro-organisms.

  • High IP rating: IP66, IP67, IP68 (2 Bar) & IP 69.

  • Corrosion resistance: material type (SS316L).

  • High chemical and thermal resistance: resistant to chemicals & cleaning agents.

  • Fewer components: ease of assembly and integrated barrier seal to prevent contamination.


Simplicity

No need for specialist cables. Standard and single core cables can be grouped and protected in one system. Mechanical protection is provided by the conduit system. Fewer components mean less product inventory throughout the supply chain.


Space saving

Grouping standard cables into one system means less glanding space/area required to terminate. Cost savings can be achieved by using smaller enclosures, less components and reducing installation time required to terminate.


Fixing

Multiple circuits can be fixed and secured in one system. This makes cleaning easy with one smooth outer cover. A range of fixing and mounting solutions are available to secure the conduit in place throughout its lifetime.


Reduced maintenance

Existing circuits can be replaced or added with ease using a conduit system, throughout the life of installation. Less cable entry points means less opportunity for Ingress protection failure during washdown or cleaning schedules.


Speed of installation

Grouping cables using flexible conduit means fewer cable entry points to the enclosure/equipment therefore less installation time. Flexible conduit offers the ability to route around equipment and plant without the need for specialist bending equipment.


Our range of hygienic flexible conduits from Flexicon offers a smooth, easy to clean surface. With the additional stainless steel hygienic fittings & accessories it creates a complete system ideal for Food & Beverage, Machinery & OEM’s, Healthcare and Pharmaceutical applications.
