Optimas' Components Division has recently introduced the HD Hygienic Cable Gland to its UK range, which offers the required specialisation to effectively seal cables in this environment. Designed to provide simple cable entry and high cable retention for panel and enclosure installation, the Hummel Hygienic HD Cable Gland offers a wide range of specialised features that make it an optimum selection for hygienic applications. Constructed from 316L Stainless Steel with a Silicone hygienic seal – the gland displays excellent corrosion resistance. This allows the component to withstand virtually any wash down procedure, regardless of frequency. In fact, the gland itself is rated to IP69K, ensuring ingress protection during high pressure water wash downs at 80°C. As a result, service life is exponentially increased.

Ease of cleaning

Another concern for components in hygienic environments is ease of cleaning. A smooth and efficient design is key for preventing contaminants from sticking to a component, which is why the low-profile Hummel Hygienic HD Cable Gland has been designed to achieve a surface roughness of less than 0.8μm. As a result, the component can be easily cleaned as part of an existing sterilisation policy.

Applications and characteristics

The Hummel Hygienic HD Cable Gland can house cables with diameters ranging from 5.0 to 21.0mm depending on specification. With an operating temperature ranging from -40°C to 120°C, the component offers the versatility and durability required to support most hygienic applications.  Easily mounted, the Hummel Hygienic HD Gland offers speedy installation, causing minimal disturbance to existing installations. These characteristics ensure that the Hummel Hygienic HD Cable Gland is an ideal selection for applications such as food preparation, pharmaceutical manufacture, chemical production, biotechnology and cleanrooms. To further reinforce this, the gland is approved to both Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) Conforming Materials standards.

Highly efficient logistics network

Hummel gathers huge experience in providing high performance electric and heating connections to a wide range of industries. Now available through Optimas, end users will be able to receive the Hummel Hygienic HD Cable Gland via a highly efficient logistics network, enabling reduced lead times. As a major fastener supplier and logistics specialist for many prestige OEM manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers, Optimas is now extending its product offering to further support hygienic applications, with additional components to be introduced to range in the near future.
