Rittal HD concept combined with 'cutting technology'

10 March 2011

Rittal along with Branson food processing and food technology Lummer present a new hygienic machine concept, with a worldwide patented vibration cutting technology, for the food industry

The modular plant has been developed specifically for frequently repeated cleaning cycles with wash-down applications.

Four Rittal Hygienic Design (HD) stainless steel enclosure systems form the basis for the design segments of the new machine. These enclosures are themselves connected transversely, with four other HD enclosures, as functional units located at the corners of the machine.

Rittal’s HD Hygienic Design enclosure range has been specifically designed to prevent any deposits from accumulating on enclosure surfaces, crevices and recesses even when washed at a high pressure clean down.

To prevent any particles collecting on the roof area, the hygienic enclosures incorporate a new 30° sloped overhang roof that also allows cleaning fluids to completely drain away without leaving residue.

With a protection category of IP66, which includes the internal door hinges to create an all round gap free door, together with the flat silicone base seal, the door builds a perfect corner finish, free of gaps and contact areas.

The enclosure can be mounted with either tubular mounting brackets with a smooth finish or using open frame plinths with a clearance height of 300mm, designed from tubular stainless steel.

With its new machine concept, food technology Lummer is offering modular production units for greater hygiene in the food industry. Curved surfaces and defined drip edges, coupled with an open design, allow an optimal cleanliness assessment and protection class.

One of a variety of different cutting technologies that can be integrated in the new HD enclosure technology is the patented vibration method from Branson food processing which can be used to perform a wide variety of cutting tasks efficiently.

For example, a flan case can be cut into three parts at the same time. The method is also particularly suitable for deep-frozen products. Here it is important that the blades used are very thin and so cause no material displacement.

All the components of this new plant have been designed to reduce pollution and to meet such legal requirements as HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points), IFS (International Food Standard) compliant product control, and FDS (Functional Design Specification) compliant design.

The overall structure is modular and so it can be configured individually, and it can be steadily enlarged and optimised in relation to the production process.
