Detectable products are an essential requirement in the food industry. In production or during cleaning, plastic products used for bundling, fastening and protecting cables and wires on food processing machines, leading to the machines or in the plant surroundings itself, can enter into the food or beverage mass. Such contamination must be swiftly detected and removed.
Due to its high metal-content (about 14 %), even small bits of SBPEMC spiral binding or HWPPMC Helawrap are detectable with standard detection equipment, as has been shown by testing conducted by HellermannTyton. Nonetheless, SBPEMC and HWPPMC retain their flexibility as well as ease-of-application and protect cables as effectively and safely as our standard spiral binding and Helawrap products. Moreover, like our metal-content cable-ties and fastenings, SBPEMC and HWPPMC are manufactured in the colour blue to enhance visibility.
SBPEMC and HWPPMC are targeted to the food- industry and its suppliers of food-processing machines. These include:
- Meat and poultry
They can be used in such applications as:
- Machine building, automation and robotics
- MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations)
SBPEMC and HWPPMC can also be used in the pharmaceutical sector, which also places emphasis on detectability.
Important for your quality management in the food industry:
- High metal-content for reliable detection with standard detection equipment
- Stainless steel, which preserves resistance to corrosion
- Highly flexible
- Very good abrasion protection
