Roxtec seals up Haas-Meincke Food Processing Equipment

June 23, 2014 - Haas-Meincke A/S is a producer of equipment for industrial bakeries and has used Roxtec solutions in its machines since 2005. Haas-Meincke A/S sells machines all over the world. Haas-Meincke A/S has developed the machines in order to ensure high reliability in production and a high level of hygiene. The previous solution using cable glands often gave rise to problems of hygiene due to the accumulation of debris.  “We started to use Roxtec standard solutions in ordinary applications, but now we consciously design our products to incorporate Roxtec seals right from the start. The advantage is that we then have 100% integrated solutions for those machines with stringent requirements for water-tightness and ease of cleaning – and, moreover, Roxtec solutions that make very good financial sense,” says Per Bjerrum, head of the design department.   The Roxtec solution provides Haas-Meincke A/S a smooth surface that is proof against moisture ingress even under high pressure hosing. At the same time Roxtec ensures that cable failures are less frequent, which helps avoid unnecessary machine downtime. If a cable should fail, however, replacement is quick and easy even if the cables are of different sizes and pre-terminated at both ends, something that would not be possible with traditional cable glands. Roxtec sealing solutions ensure that food production operators will run smoothly with ‚Ä®fewer production stoppages, and less switching between end products. The Roxtec modules also have proved to be a valuable design element when building in cables‚Ä® for process control. ‚Ä®Most importantly, Roxtec provides for proper hygiene and ease of cleaning using high-pressure combined ‚Ä®with high reliability of the electrical connections.
