SKINTOP® Cable Glands Offer NSF Approval for Food Applications
SKINTOP® cable glands—can benefit your food handling application.
When it comes to food and beverage machines, you already know bacteria can grow in unexpected places—including your cables and connectors. It’s important to pay close attention to these often-overlooked places by selecting cable components with NSF International approval.
Certified to NSF 169
Cables and connectors that meet NSF requirements are suitable for food handling and processing equipment, including filling systems in dairies or breweries, as well as other sensitive areas in the chemical and pharmaceutical sectors.
