The food and pharmaceutical industry, but also the chemical and clean room technology place high demands on all components used in their systems. Hygiene suitability is the top priority according to the EHEDG requirements. Because in the plants z. B. buildup of dirt particles that can favor the formation of bacterial nests can be excluded. The cleaning agents used must roll off cleanly. Cavities, gaps and open threads are therefore taboo in hygienic applications for cable glands.
Pflitsch developed the Blueglobe Clean Plus for these industries and certified them four years ago as the first complete fitting according to EHEDG. Following the market launch of the stainless steel version, Pflitsch is now expanding its EHEDG solutions, currently with the new plastic version, to start series production in sizes M12 to M40 for cable diameters from 5 mm to 29 mm.
