Process Area Washdown

Process Area Washdown

High quality, cost effective wiring, connectivity and communication solutions ensure uninterrupted smooth communication even in harsh environments with high safety and hygienic requirements

The challenge: Revenue in the food and beverage industry depends on customer demand. And demand is influenced by population growth, consumption and disposable income. For each company, profitability depends on operational efficiency.

For efficiency assessment, the process/wash-down area of a production facility plays a very critical role. This area is closely monitored on a state and federal level, with various hygienic and safety regulations – components and products used in this area may come into direct contact with the food, and workers may contact the component surfaces and thereafter the food. Intensive cleaning, temperature fluctuation, acids, oils and dust create a harsh environment in which the components are used.

Reliable solutions that guarantee the highest performance and productivity even in harsh production environments
