Many industries in which special importance is placed on hygiene know the problem: if contamination shows up in the product, from whatever source, expensive recall-action is inevitable. This is why RST has launched the stainless steel cable gland “Euro Top Hygiene”, which is designed to meet the special demands in the field of hygiene. In this respect, the surface of a cable gland must be constructed in such a way that no dust can settle or production residues collect, and no harmful micro-organisms can be created. Therefore in the new Euro-Top Hygienic cable gland, all active components have been placed inside so that the surface is completely smooth. Additionally, this cable gland has sealing rings made of TPE material (in accordance with FDA 21 CFR 177.2600), which is especially approved for the food industry. The well thought-out construction means that the cable gland meets protection standards IP68 and IP69K.
