Company: AFC Cable Systems
Sanitation Snapshot: AFC Cable Systems’ newest Liquid-Tuff Liquid Tight Flexible Conduit is designed specifically for splash zones, making it ideal for food equipment and devices, meat packing, restaurants, food processing, and poultry packing.
The Splash Zone Liquid Tight Conduit features a moisture-, oil-, and sunlight-resistant polyvinyl chloride (PVC) jacket that inhibits bacteria growth and won’t degrade due to “wash down/splash zones” with bleach agents. This allows food manufacturers to clean and sterilize using bleach without the risk of product degradation. Additionally, the Splash Zone Liquid Tight Conduit is compatible with AFC’s Food Grade Liquid Tight Stainless Steel fitting, which comes complete with polyester elastomer compression seals to prevent ingress of food or bacteria.
The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) classifies a splash zone as a location where during normal operations direct contact with food products is not expected. The location may be where liquids used in processing or cleaning may splash or spill on the surface causing a risk for dripping or draining onto other surfaces. Wet location listing is not sufficient in these areas and products must be tested to withstand high-pressure hose washdown.
The Splash Zone Liquid Tight Conduit is UL listed and CSA NSF 169 Component compliant, meeting and exceeding standards for material safety, design, construction, and product performance in the food industry. Available in metallic and non-metallic.
