HELUKABEL recently announced that multiple PVC-jacketed control and motor cables have recently been tested and certified by ECOLAB for use during washdown processes found typically in the food and beverage industries.

The newly certified control and motor cable families are suitable for various stationary, flexing, and continuous-flex/drag chain applications. The products that were subjected to the 28-day test using cleaning/disinfecting substances Topactive 200, Topactive 500, P3-topax 66, P3-topactive OKTO, and P3-topax 990 along with demineralized water (used for zero reference value) were:

PVC/Nylon Insulated, PVC Jacketed, NFPA 79 Complaint Control Cables

  • • TRAYCONTROL 300 / TRAYCONTROL 300-C
  • • TRAYCONTROL 300 TP / TRAYCONTROL 300 TP-C
  • • TRAYCONTROL 500 / TRAYCONTROL 500-C
  • • TRAYCONTROL 530
  • • TRAYCONTROL 600 / TRAYCONTROL 600-C
  • • MULTIFLEX 600 / MULTIFLEX 600-C

XLPE Insulated, PVC Jacketed, NFPA 79 Complaint Control Cable

• TRAYCONTROL X

XLPE Insulated, PVC Jacketed, NFPA 79 Complaint VFD Motor Cables

• TOPFLEX 600 VFD

The cable families mentioned above were tested in accordance with ECOLAB test PM 40-1, which requires cables to be completely immersed in the various cleaning/disinfecting substances for up to 28 days at constant room temperature. Upon complete of the immersion test cables are then subjected to visual inspection to see if any swelling, brittleness or discoloring has occurred in comparison to the cables immersed in demineralized water. Additional information on each of the ECOLAB cleaning/disinfecting substances used in the testing process:

  • • Topactive 200: Alkaline, chlorine-free foam cleaner in the food and beverage industries
  • • Topactive 500: Acid foam cleaning substance for the food and beverage industries
  • • P3-topax 66: Alkaline foam cleaning detergent with active chlorine for machine cleaning in the food and beverage industries
  • • P3-topactive OKTO: Acid disinfectant based on peracetic acid/hydrogen peroxide for the food and beverage industries
  • • P3-topax 990: Neutral, non-oxidizing disinfecting agent for foam application in the food and beverage industries

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
