Food Safety

 

Laser Etched Conduit Bodies

Nooks and crevices can be breeding grounds for microbes. With Laser Etching (as opposed to stamping), you minimize these risks. Click video above to learn more.

  • Marine-grade Type 316 stainless steel construction
  • LU Conduit Body design can reduce inventory, replacing the need for LB, LL, LR, and L designs.
  • UL Listed and CSA Certified

:  ABB’s Ty-Rap detectable ties are recommended for applications in food and other contamination-sensitive applications.

Detectable Cable Ties

No one likes secret ingredients. The Ty-Rap® detectable cable ties and accessories from ABB incorporate a unique patented compound that can be detected by x-ray equipment, metal detectors and visual inspection equipment. Those products are particularly recommended for applications in food, pharmaceutical and other contamination-sensitive industries using detection systems, where cable tie installation residuals (cut tails) and/or accessories are not allowed in the finished product.

  • Detectable by x-ray equipment
  • Bright blue color allows easy visual detection
  • Buoyant, polypropylene version available for use in liquid processing applications
  • “The Grip of Steel” locking device offers superior performance

Wall offsets contain silver ion tech to inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungus, and mold in food and bev processing plants.

Anti-Microbial Wall Offsets

During washdown, the space between walls and enclosures can be a breeding ground for microbes. These wall offsets help create the space for adequate cleaning behind the enclosure while having anti-microbial properties to the offsets themselves.

  • Made from AG+ FDA compliant material
  • Contains silver ion technology to inhibit the growth of bacteria, fungus, and mold
  • AG+ material was 99.9% effective at killing E. coli staphylococcus and salmonella on treated material surface compared to untreated
