ELECTRI-FLEX COMPANY (Roselle, IL) announces food processing flexible liquidtight jacketed conduit Types LAFG and LSSFG now have an improved PVC jacketing. These enhancements include a new food processing blue color, an even wider temperature range, and are now antimicrobial. Liquatite Food Grade electrical conduits provide a flexible, liquidtight protective wiring raceway, ideally suited for Food Processing, Pharmaceutical and Bottling Equipment installations. Benefits include:
- Food Processing Blue Jacketing. The new food processing blue color has grown in popularity due to its increased safety features and is installed in food processing applications around the world. The blue color provides high visibility for fast moving machinery and operations. Blue coloring is also an important safety consideration, as manufacturers can easily spot the blue color if fragments break off and get into the product.
- Antimicrobial. The flexible PVC jacketing now contains an antimicrobial biocide additive. This additive inhibits the growth of commonly known food processing microbes, such as E. coli, listeria, and salmonella, and even shows a reduction of these microbes over a 24-hour period.
- Higher Temperature Range. These conduits now offer a wider temperature range, from -30°C through 105°C. These temperatures are critical considerations when installing near heat-producing food equipment, or with consistently hot washdowns.
