Exceed hygiene standards with the Murrelektronik stainless steel distribution box

When it comes to the Food and Beverage industry, no half measures can be made when it comes to safety and hygiene standards. Tech giants Murrelektronik took this on board when they designed the MVP12 steel distribution box. PIF spoke with Murrelektronik engineers, experts in decentralization installations, about the IP69K stainless steel distribution box and its many advantages.

MVP12 Stainless Steel

The MVP12 Distribution Box is extremely hygienic for many different reasons. Firstly, it is made from top-quality stainless steel which makes it easy to clean. It is also resistant to corrosion from high-pressure cleaners and harmful detergents, which is vital within the food processing industry.

Furthermore, the Food and Beverage Distribution Box was designed with no cavities, groove or other small spaces where mold or bacteria can build up, making it even easier to maintain its cleanliness.

High IP rating

Another impressive hygiene-preserving aspect of the Murrelektronik Stainless Steel Distribution Box is that it has a very high IP rating. Whichever stage of the cleaning process you are in, the rating of IP66K, IP67, IP68, IP69K (96 hours) mean that the system will not fail you when you require it the most.

For easy maintenance, look no further than the MVP12 Steel Distribution Box with its LEDs connected right at the ports. Forget about endlessly checking every wire to locate the source of the problem, and save your time especially when working with large systems.

Bespoke hygienic design

As we mentioned previously, the lack of indentations or grooves in the MVP12 distribution box makes the product extremely easy to keep clean, but the benefits of the design don’t stop there:
● 4-, 5-, 8-, 12-pole
● A-, B-, D-coded models available
● 0.34mm² (AWG22) PP wires
● 0.2m, 0.5m, 1.0m standard wire lengths
● Anti twist protection ensures easy assembly
● IP69K rating

FDA safe

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in charge of the regulations involved in food safety and the hygienic standards that food processing companies are required to meet. Murrelektronik’s TPE-S, TPE-V M12 Steel and MVP12 Steel cables have been granted this accreditation, highlighting the reliability and prestige of these products.

M12 sealing concept

The hygienic benefits of the Murrelektronik Stainless Steel Distribution Box continue with the revelation of the M12 sealing concept. The connectors, created within a grey mold to make contamination easy to identify, contain a gasket in the MVP12 Steel range that initiates a closed unit.

The connector is then sealed in both an axial and radial direction. This second precautionary level means that the likelihood of any foreign matter penetrating the port is highly unlikely. Murrelektronik goes above and beyond when it comes to hygienic standards, which has earned the company both ECOLAB and UL/CSA accreditations for the MVP12 Steel range.
