    How to minimize food safety recalls with one simple step: antimicrobial cables

    Food Processing 3.jpgFew industries have the complex and demanding sanitation requirements of the Food and Beverage industry. High-pressure sprays, varying water temperature, and cleaners will eventually wear down your electrical cables and connections. Not only this, but it can be a challenge to find products that meet the safety and hygienic needs of your customer, the food industry, and various government regulations.

    So how can you be sure that your equipment designs will protect food manufacturers, and eventually their customers, against harmful, microbial contamination? The following products can give you peace of mind, knowing that they have been manufactured to the highest quality standards:

    1. Anti-Microbial Plugs and ConnectorsEricson-A-Perma-Kleen.jpg

    Anti-Microbial Plus and Connectors are engineered and manufactured to protect against
    various bacteria, like Escherichia and Staphylococcus, molds, mildews, and fungi. These are especially useful in applications like food packaging and preparation, beverage processing, meat processing, and agriculture.

    2. Anti-Microbial Plug Covers

    Easy to assemble Plug Covers work hand in hand with Plugs and Connectors. These covers help to seal out water, dust, and other contaminants. In addition, covers protect blades from damage when the plug is not in use.

    3. Cable Reels

    While cable reels can be used in almost any industry, they are especially useful with food and beverage processing. They are the perfect way to manage and protect cables, while taking into consideration space constraints. Many cable reels are rated for both indoor and outdoor use, meaning that they can be used in wet or moist environments. Not only this, but reels help keep cords out of the way, protecting food processing employees from trips and falls.

     While finding quality products for food and beverage equipment may not always be quick and easy, these three products will give you a great start for your next product designs.  To find out more about antimicrobial products or food and beverage solutions, click here.
