Meets the standards and remains ecological: parker legris liquifit

In branches of industry where hygiene is critical, there is no escape from Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. The keen eye of the legislator is trained in particular on components that come into direct contact with products. Parker Legrisʼs Liquifit Connection Systems, machine builders and plant operators are off the hook, including in ecological terms.

Production companies that are employed in the food, beverages, pharmaceutical or cosmetics sectors enjoy the special attention of the regulators. In addition to the general safety regulations, specific requirements apply for their machines and systems relating to clean production, cleaning and disinfection.

The Machinery Directive as the measure of all things

The Machinery Directive specifies the guiding principles and its most recent update sets out the production goods for pharmaceutical and cosmetic products in practically the same steps as those for the food industry. Harmful health risks for consumers must be completely ruled out.

In keeping with the regulators

In the field of fluid transport, Parker Legris guarantees that the strict regulator stipulations do not cause upset for machine builders and plant operators. The Liquifit product family includes a wide range of reliable and compact connections for all applications in the fluid field. The fittings, made from polymer, with metal adapters and parallel threads, are made of either 316L grade stainless steel or FDA-compliant nickel-plated brass, depending on the type. They boast excellent mechanical strength and robustness, combined with an ideal seal. The unique design is configured according to ecological principles, with which Parker contributes to protecting the environment, thanks to the comparatively small carbon footprint of its products.

Manufacturing using the Ecodesign process

The Liquifit range fittings fulfil NSF 51 or NSF 61 criteria respectively, depending on the type. The range of components manufactured from biological polymers also complies with the requirements of the KTW and W270 guidelines. They are guaranteed to be free of Bisphenol A and phthalates and are therefore ideally suited for the transport of water, beverages and industrial fluids.

Bachofen manages the full Liquifit range from Parker Legris and ensures that everything on the economical side is compliant: with project-oriented advice, technical support and short delivery times.
