The standard parts specialist Elesa+Ganter is expanding its hygienic design product family with new screws and nuts of non-rusting Stainless Steel as well as FDAcompliant elastomer sealing rings

Hygienic cleanliness is not only an essential prerequisite in the

food and pharmaceutical industries. Other ares of industry, such

as the manufacturing of dispersion paint for use in construction,

also profit from high hygiene standards. This often makes it possible to do without preservatives without compromising on the product lifespan.

Product machines and their environment require thorough cleaning to achieve this. When using typical components, this means

time-consuming and costly disassembly, long machine downtimes

and massive consumption of water, cleaning agents and energy.

Not so when using components of hygienic design:

These are made of high-quality materials with particularly smooth

surfaces, making them significantly easier to clean, especially

while still installed.

To continue this approach, Elesa+Ganter is now expanding its hygienic design product family with nuts and screws of Stainless Steel under

the designation GN 1580 that optimally satisfy the high requirements

of EHEDG. They are designed with special geometry and a surface

roughness of < 0.8 µm, which causes liquids to quickly bead up and

accelerates the drying process after cleaning. The standard design

incorporates FDA-compliant elastomer sealing rings on the contact

surface that are practically impossible to lose and situated cleanly

centered within the machined cavity. When installed, they with stand

the required compression without being overloaded.

The sealing rings are available individually under the designation

GN 7600 in a variety of dimensions and can also be supplied in

other materials, upon request. They can therefore be used as

replacement parts for the nuts and screws, while also enabling the

hygienic fastening of additional parts without dead space.
