LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP Cables for Food and Beverage Processing Applications

10/13/2020

ByErin Roddy

Safe and sanitary manufacturing conditions are essential when it comes to the food and beverage industry. The food safe design of LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP makes it the ultimate cabling solution for these demanding requirements. In order to maintain sanitary conditions, frequent and thorough cleaning procedures are necessary. These cables use a food safe jacket that is specially formulated to withstand harsh cleaning procedures.

If a cable cannot withstand frequent washdown cycles, the cable jacket may become degraded. A damaged cable jacket will ultimately lead to cable failure and may pose a safety hazard. To ensure safe and continued operation, all cables for the food and beverage industry should be certified for washdown resistance. LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP cables are third party evaluated by Ecolab for resistance against the most common cleaning agents and chemicals used in food and beverage washdown procedures.

Features include:

  • Cables meet both UL and FDA requirements, streamlining inspections and reducing the need for exceptions to 21 CFR
  • Evaluated by Ecolab for resistance to commonly used cleaning agents
  • Cables may be run without conduit in some areas due to the external wiring approvals, washdown certification, and food contact rating
  • UL Recognized – 1000V 90°C AWM
  • Reduced diameter for easy routing
  • Food safe design reduces cabling as a contamination risk

LUTZE SILFLEX® FBP cables come in three configurations to meet your specific application needs:

  1. Unshielded Control Cable A601
  2. Shielded Control Cable A602
  3. Shielded Motor Cable A606
