IDEM’s new ESL-SS-WR designed for food contact and splash zones environments
IDEM Safety Switches’ new ESL-SS-WR is the latest addition to its hygienic range of products. The unique design has been specifically tailored for the strict washdown environments found in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.
The body is constructed using 316 grade stainless-steel, with a mirror polished finish. “The single piece lid has curved sides ensuring, liquid does not remain on the surface after cleaning. This, coupled with raised hexagon fixing screws, drastically reduces the likelihood of contaminant build-up [food traps],” states the company.
Tested to IP69K
The ESL-SS-WR has been tested to IP69K and meets the requirements of food contact and splash zones. The button is designed using a special material that is metal and x-ray detectable, for use in modern food production environments.
Optional accessories include a stainless-steel spacer kit and rubber seal for ESL-SS-WR. The rubber seal provides a tight water-resistant seal around the base of the switch when bolted to a machine. In addition, the spacer kit also provides a stainless steel backplate and 4xM4 spacers, raising the switch of the surface to prevent liquids from accumulating at the rear.
IDEM designs and manufactures a vast range of machine safety products that, it says, “save lives and improves productivity. Each product has been engineered with the customer in mind, ensuring long-term reliability, even in the harshest of environments”.
