Processing and packaging machinery used in the food and beverage industry are ripe for bacteria growth. To prevent contamination, the machines undergo routine washdown periods. Each component must be resistant to the range of chemical, thermal and physical stresses that lead to degradation, in order to deliver reliable, efficient performance. To maintain their cleanliness, these cables are resistant to all standard detergents used during the cleaning process.

To stay ahead of future customer demand, HELUKABEL has tested 24 cable familes in accordance with ECOLAB® test PM 40-1, which requires cables to be completely immersed in the various cleaning/disinfecting substances for up to 28 days at constant room temperature. Upon completion, the test cables are then subjected to visual inspection to see if any swelling, brittleness or discoloring occurred.
