The pharmaceutical industry, due to the inherent nature of the products it processes, has very special requirements. These requirements are aimed at not contaminating the manufactured products and preventing these products from being deposited on surfaces and potentially contaminating operators or spreading into the environment.


 

This entails regular washing and disinfection procedures with aggressive cleaning agents that often damage many of the materials commonly used in other industrial sectors. These washes are sometimes carried out with high pressure steam, so the requirements in terms of the degree of IP protection are very demanding. Another remarkable point is to avoid that the remains of the products are deposited in corners and nooks.  This is the main reason why materials must have flat surfaces with a curvature in their shapes. Besides, it is necessary very soft materials that facilitate the elimination of residues by dragging in the washing processes.

 

 

The low gas emission from the materials used and the low humidity absorption are also other demanded and valued aspects. The work environment for the process of pharmaceutical products is called hygienic environments due to all these conditioning factors.

 

 

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) regulates the use of components and materials in the pharmaceutical and food industry in the USA, but its influence has been implemented in other countries and continents. Manufacturers of machines and equipment for the pharmaceutical industry that export to the USA, must comply with the requirements of the FDA on a mandatory basis. In Europe, the EHDEG (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group) is the reference body.

ICOTEK, distributed in Spain by KOLBI ELECTRÓNICA, presents its new series of cable glands for the pharmaceutical and food industry KEL-DPZ HD with FDA approval. This cable glad has been developed for installation in food processing or pharmaceutical machines. A significant advantage over a traditional cable gland is the significantly higher cable density and the flexibility of the cable diameter range. The fixation is very simple with the locknut.

 

 

Other advantages:

 

  • Cable glands for mounting on metric threads from M25 to M63
  • ECOLAB certification and FDA approved materials
  • Meets EHDEG requirements
  • IP 65/66/67/68
  • Supports repetitive cleaning processes
  • Smooth surfaces to avoid the deposit of residues.
  • High resistance to chemicals, fats, oils and aromatic solvents
  • High wiring density
  • Very low moisture absorption
