Plastic locking nut in Hygienic Design
With plastic locking nuts in Hygienic Design it is easy to achieve cost benefits towards stainless steel in food- and beverage applications.
The food industry sets high demands in terms of hygiene and process security. These demands can be transferred one-to-one to connectors and cables. To withstand aggressive cleaning- and detergent agents, it is common to refer to special plastics or V4A stainless-steel as material. As of now, ESCHA offers connectors with cost-effective plastic locking nuts in Hygienic Design, abandoning the comparably expensive stainless-steel locking nuts.
The new plastic locking nuts developed by ESCHA are extremely robust and can be tightened by hand as well as with a torque wrench. Afterwards they fulfil the protection standards according to IP67, IP68, and IP69. Due to their unique plastics compound they are resistant to Ecolab detergents. Their Hygienic Design prevents the formation of dirt pockets and residues. Therefore, connectors with plastic locking nut can be used in the product contact zone without more ado.
The new plastic locking nuts are available for M12-connectors in three, four-, or five-pole version. There are three cable qualities at your disposal. Additionally, you can choose between male and female as well as straight and angled variants.
