Hygienic cleanliness is not only an essential prerequisite in the food, medical, and pharmaceutical industries. Other areas of industry, such as the paint manufacturing process, also take advantage of high hygienic standards.
When using typical components, production machines and their environments require thorough cleaning. This means time-consuming costly disassembly and long machine downtimes, which is not the case when using components of hygienic design. These standard parts are made of high-quality materials with particularly smooth surfaces, making them significantly easier to clean, especially while still installed.
To continue this trend, Winco is now expanding its hygienic design product family with a new indexing plunger. The new GN 8170 stainless steel indexing plungers are intended for use in areas requiring sanitary equipment. They are available in lock-out or non-lock out types with a sealing lock nut that creates a totally hygienic version or without a sealing lock nut.
