    A rare find in the food industry – dedicated manifold with an IP69K rating

    The stringent hygiene regulations that need to be met in the production process, the demand for high-speed manufacturing and the necessity of addressing energy costs are the key aspects of hygienic and efficient automation in food and beverage production.

    Hence, the correct selection of suitable components for the respective hygiene area is decisive, particularly where machine parts can come into contact with food during production.

    The new IP69K manifold, available as part of the SY 5000 range, was specially designed to satisfy the hygienic requirements of the food and beverage industry. The unit is now suitable for wet areas and can withstand wash down and cleaning. It is particularly suitable for the food and beverage industry and is also applicable to other industrial areas where harsh environments prevail or the use of water is present.

    Clean Type Valve Manifold

    • IP69K rated to withstand high pressure cleaning loads.
    • Easy handling during maintenance and installation.
    • Easy to clean, easy to maintain & corrosion resistant.
    • Ability to install valves outside of protective panel and close to actuators for better control.
    • Small and light weight, ideal for use on robots and in tight machine rooms.

    Optimized your bottling and cleaning processes

    Bottle cleaning plays a critical role in the bottling process. Depending on the type of product to be bottled (beer, fruit juices or beer-based mixed drinks), cleaning agents have to be used, to clean the ambient bottling and moving devices and to keep them free from microbial infestation.

    Therefore, as a usual practice in food processing applications, Clean in Place (CIP) liquids are used in the bottling plant.

    However, this process is considerably demanding on the materials used in the production line. To avoid contamination in food processing such as bacteria, chemical influences or corrosion particles to take place, it is of utmost importance to ensure that cleaning is safe. The materials used must not react with the cleaning agents or the disinfectants. Hence, machine parts must be resistant to heat and corrosion.

    SMC’s CG5-S series is a stainless steel cylinder, perfect for use in food processing applications requiring intense cleaning. The use of non-toxic additives allows confident use in equipment for foods, beverages and medical products, etc. The CG5-S can be disassembled, allowing replacement of seals, which promotes an extended service life. The use of stainless steel (SUS304) on external metal parts provides improved corrosion resistance in environments with exposure to water.

    Product Ideal for Heat Resistance, Corrosion Resistance & Food Product Grease

      New Year’s Fast Facts

    Here’s a look at New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, which marks the end of the old year and the beginning of the new year.

    The earliest known New Year celebrations were in Mesopotamia and date back to 2000 B.C.
    The early Romans used March 1 as New Year’s Day. Other cultures used the autumn equinox or the winter solstice to mark the new year.
    1582 – The Gregorian calendar, which marks January 1 as the new year, is adopted by the Roman Catholic Church.
    January is named after Janus, the god with two faces, one looking forward and one looking backward.

    New Year’s is the time when many people traditionally make resolutions to break bad habits or start good ones.
    Ancient Persians gave New Year’s gifts of eggs, which symbolized productiveness.
    Most New Year’s traditions are believed to ensure good luck for the coming year. Many parts of the United States observe the tradition of eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day for good luck.

    したがって、食品加工工場では通常、CIP(Clean in Place)液というものが使われます。

    細菌などの食品加工における汚染、化学的影響または腐食粒子の発生を避けるために、洗浄が安全であることを保証することが最も重要です。 用される材料は、洗浄剤または消毒剤と反応してはならない。 したがって、機械部品は熱および腐食に対して耐性がなければいけません。
