Detectable spiral cable tidy from Detectamet reduces clutter and contamination

23 January 2014

Detectamet's new spiral cable tidy is suitable for organising and protecting cables in industries that require potentially contaminating materials to be detectable.

Electrical cabling presents a risk if it has to be routed over and through processing areas in businesses such as bakery, beverage, confectionery, dairy, meat & poultry. When new machinery and systems are installed in existing production areas more cabling for power and control has to be added.  The risk of pieces of cable tie accidentally getting into the food processing lines is increased especially when old ties are released from tension because they fly in all directions. 

For numbers of years safety conscious food and drink companies have specified that plastic cable ties have to be metal detectable and the advent of new forms of cable management must offer the same characteristics. Therefore Detectamet has added a metal detectable spiral cable tidy to its range of detectable plastic products. This tidy is easy to install which means that it saves time and it reduces the need for the cable ties which means there are fewer pieces of tie being clipped off and ‘lost’.

This detectable cable tidy is both X-ray visible and metal detectable and the plastics fulfil the FDA requirements for plastics in contact with food.  There is a choice of three diameters of 4mm, 9mm and 16mm and each size is supplied as a roll 30metres long. The bright blue colour adds further safeguards against contamination of food because it is more strikingly visible.

The assurance of metal detectability provides an extra safeguard to food companies endeavouring to protect their customers and consumers from the risks of contamination.  The resulting costs and loss of credibility of brand quality far outweigh the minor effort needed to specify this new product.
