Hygienic design for the food & processing industries

Gaskets, seals and rough pipe surfaces are potential bacteria havens and hygienic challenges for the food and processing industry. The solution? Hygienic design. Jürgen Hofmann unlocks a glass cabinet. “Look at this,” he says - it is a length of stainless steel piping, which has a short branch at ninety degrees with a bolted-on cover. “There used to be a sensor in here or a similar device, but it was removed and the tube was blocked off. This means that cleaning liquid cannot enter this dead end and the finish here is so coarse that it is easier for the bacteria to adhere to the surface.”
