A guide for designers of food processing machines
Food production is highly automated. This offers advantages in terms of efficiency and productivity. In addition, automated handling reduces the risk of contaminants entering the production and packaging process.
The designers of food packaging machines must therefore check their suitability for use in hygiene-sensitive areas when selecting components. This white paper describes the effect this has on the selection of cable carriers, while also showcasing a series of hygienic, FDA-compliant cable carriers that were specially developed for use in food production.
What is “hygienic design” and what do the standards require?
First of all — completely independent of cable carriers — a brief overview of the requirements for hygienic components that are used in machines for food production.
When it comes to hygienic design, it must be ensured there are no spaces in which dirt residue can be trapped, allowing germs to multiply. This enables easy and effective cleaning. Additionally, wear-related abrasion can create particulates that must be prevented from entering the food production process.
