Flexible cable protection systems

30 May 2017

Flexicon has launched a range of new flexible conduit ranges and hygienic fittings designed to make cable installations faster, simpler and safer for food processing applications. 

“Flexible conduit is a superior and more cost-effective means of interconnecting power and data cables compared to traditional cable gland installations, as several cables can be grouped together and mechanically protected within a single cable entry point,” explained Tim Creedon, sales and marketing director at Flexicon.
“Installations are simpler, faster and save space because only one gland is needed.  Future maintenance is also reduced since existing circuits can be replaced, upgraded or added with minimal disruption and fewer cable entry points means that it is less likely that the ingress protection will fail during wash down or cleaning.”

The flexible conduits are available with a variety of different constructions, but all feature a smooth outer cover manufactured from FDA approved ingredients which has been independently tested to European Food regulation 10/2011. All of these conduits are compatible with our stainless steel hygienic fittings.

The hygienic grade stainless steel fittings have been designed in accordance with Food Processing Machinery design Standards EN 1672-2, and Safety of Machinery – Hygiene requirements for the design of machinery EN ISO 14159.  

Each fitting incorporates blue compression seals and a blue nut seal to prevent the ingress of food and bacteria.  It has smooth surfaces to prevent food or bacterial build up and is available in 16mm to 63mm options in straight metric thread derivatives.
