Ultimate Guide to Food and Beverage Cables

Few industries match the complexity and exacting standards of the food and beverage sector. Hygiene is paramount, extending to electrical components used in food processing. The primary goal is to prevent germ and impurity build-up, ensuring product safety. Thus, cables, plug connections, and conduit glands for the food industry must meet stringent quality standards to maintain hygiene levels.

Cables Requirements in the Food and Beverage Industry

The food industry's strict hygiene rules demand special features from electrical components. Cables and accessories must endure various chemical, thermal, and mechanical stresses, even in refrigerated and damp environments.

Machinery and systems in food production undergo cleaning for about 30% of the day, often with strong cleaning agents to eliminate germs and impurities. Dealing with extreme temperatures in wet or refrigerated spaces and during heating processes adds to the challenge.

Therefore, cables and wires used in food production must withstand these stresses to be suitable for use in plants and production areas.

The needs of the food industry:

Considerations for Cable Selection

In food and beverage production, three zones are defined, each subject to varying external influences such as mechanical stress or temperature fluctuations.

Regardless of the zone, we offer tailored cables and connection solutions for your machinery and systems – be it in the hygienic design zone, spray zone, or non-product zone.

The selection of appropriate components and their correct usage directly impacts staff safety and final product quality. The key here is to minimise downtime, ensure product quality, and protect employees – priorities across all industries but ones hold particular significance in food production.

In this sector, halting the processing of perishable food items results in profit losses and significant expenses due to waste disposal and production restarts. Additionally, consumer health is always of utmost concern within the food and beverage industry.
