HELUKABEL Cables Receive ECOLAB Certification

Multiple TPE-jacketed control and motor cables have recently been tested and certified by ECOLAB for use during washdown processes

HELUKABEL recently announced their multiple TPE-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.

HELUKABEL, one of the leading global manufacturers and suppliers of cable, wires and accessories, recently announced that multiple TPE-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 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, TPE Jacketed, NFPA 79 Compliant Control Cables

  • TRAYCONTROL® 550 TPE
  • TRAYCONTROL® 670 HDP / TRAYCONTROL® 670-C HDP

  • TOPFLEX® 650 VFD
  • TOPFLEX® 1000 VFD
  • TOPSERV® 600 VFD
  • TOPSERV® 650 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 completion 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 for the food and beverage industries used
in the testing process:

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