In food production, food safety plays one of the most important roles for the consumer. In the industrial manufacture of food and beverages, the hygienic design of plant components in contact with products is an essential prerequisite for avoiding microbiological contamination, and with that, ensuring product quality. As part of the overall hygienic concept of a plant, the measuring instruments used must comply with special requirements on material, surface finish quality, process safety, connection engineering and cleaning in the scope of the CIP process.
Hygienic standards and safety
Measuring instruments from WIKA are manufactured in conformity with international standards. They meet the stringent requirements of, e.g.:
- FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
- EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group)
- 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc.
- ATEX (directive 94/9/EC)
For conformity verification within the framework of an HACCP concept, we have a comprehensive programme of certificates available. For the ongoing testing of the measuring instruments in the context of quality management, a wide range of calibration equipment and calibration services are available.
WIKA supplies a wide range of measuring instruments with industry-standard and manufacturer-specific process connections, e.g., milk thread fitting DIN 11851, clamp connections to DIN 32676, clamp ISO 2852 and ASME BPE, aseptic connections to DIN 11864, NEUMO®, VARIVENT®, for sterile or aseptic applications.
