The Secret Ingredient Is Expertise: Why JJ-LAPP is the first choice for the food and beverage industry

What do dairy processing facilities, bakeries, confectionery factories, and meat and fish processing sites have in common? While they all have specific and distinct requirements depending on their products, they must all adhere to strict guidelines and standards to ensure their products meet safety and quality standards.

Every company in the food and beverage industry must have reliable and safe equipment, which always includes cables, connectors and glands. But with such high standards in place across the industry, how do you choose the right products for your connectivity solutions?

As you would expect, every cable offered by JJ-LAPP complies with all the necessary regulations and is designed and tested to meet international standards. This guarantees that they are safe to use in food and beverage processing facilities without compromising quality of the end product. However, it is not in our company ethos to simply meet the minimum requirements. With our experience in supplying cables for the food and beverage industry, we have spent decades studying the sector’s intricacies and needs so that we can go above and beyond for our customers. Furthermore, our continued collaboration with a diverse range of partners has given us an unrivalled understanding of the specific requirements across various sub-sectors.

These include dairy, meat and fish processing, bakery and confectionery, beverage bottling plants, and packaging machines. 

We are unique in our ability to provide bespoke solutions, meticulously developed in LAPP’s in-house laboratories and test facilities. The results stem from our extensive experience, gained over the years in international markets, which has thus far included testing over 100 different cleaning agents and over 700 other substances such as oils, fats and emulsions on LAPP products while monitoring its performance.

Now, JJ-LAPP offers a wide range of cables specifically designed for the food and beverage industry. These include FDA-compliant cables with:

  • Antimicrobial properties of the cables, connectors and glands
  • Halogen-free cables for areas exposed to high heat, preventing toxic gases to contaminate the work area and products produced, as well as protect workers from inhaling toxic fumes
  • Oil-resistant cables for use in harsh environments.

These components are certified according to EHEDG and ECOLAB, and are IPA cleanroom suitable. In compliance with Hygienic Design principles, our cables are devised to prevent the accumulation of food particles, dust, or any other contaminants. This assists in maintaining a clean and hygienic environment, a critical concern in the production of food and beverages.

Our connectivity solutions also provide numerous benefits that are tailored to the demands of the food and beverage industry. They are resistant to temperature fluctuations, moisture, and mechanical stresses. These cables, connectors and glands are also corrosion-resistant, an essential feature in an industry where equipment is often exposed to high humidity, aggressive cleaning agents, and corrosive food substances. Combined, these properties significantly prolong cable service life and lower the costs associated with unscheduled maintenance and replacement.

JJ-LAPP’s connectivity solutions are developed in a way that factor in the need for adequate component protection. This ensures that all cables, connectors and glands are adequately sealed and protected from external factors that could compromise their performance or safety.

We are committed to being the dedicated partner to our customers in this industry. Our continued research ensures that our cables are designed to the highest international standards, using superior materials and advanced technology. At the same time, our expertise ensures that every customer receives the ideal solution tailored to fulfil their specific needs.
