Hygienic design: consistent down to the smallest connector

When constructing plants for industrial food production, every single detail needs to be considered when it comes to hygiene, and connection technology is no exception. Turck provides two product lines for this sensitive sector that have been specially developed for the food industry.

The strict regulatory requirements governing industrial food production do not allow any room for compromise. In order to be compliant, every component of a plant must satisfy not only functional but also hygiene requirements. Key hygiene-critical factors are the construction method, the surface design and the choice of materials.

Cleaning: the moment of truth

Whether or not a component meets a sufficient standard of hygiene is especially apparent when it comes to cleaning it: it must be able to withstand high pressures, high temperatures, and, depending on the production area, aggressive cleaning agents. The automation specialist Turck has spent a great deal of time grappling with these factors, and with its TFG and TFE connection technology series, it provides products that are able to cope with this harsh and demanding production environment.
