About Food and Beverage processing:



Harsh washdown procedures cause heavy wear on safety devices and eventual breakage. Such breakages cause costly amounts of downtime as the machine can no longer be safely accessed. Chemical and hot water washdown is the biggest challenge for industrial equipment so using heavy duty products is critical.


In the Food & Beverage industry, machines with dangerous moving parts can have long rundown times that could easily cause injury to personnel without the appropriate safeguarding and access control devices in place with devices approved for guard locking up to PLe.


Additionally, large machines require many access points where maintenance personnel cannot be seen, posing the risk of unexpected restart. Similarly, confined spaces such as vats and mixing silos can pose a risk to any personnel attempting to enter them.
