Your food and beverage production facility is state of the art. You comply with all relevant regulatory standards. Yet one day, during routine maintenance, a plastic Double Head Cable Tie is accidentally cut and lands somewhere on the processing line, the batch is contaminated. Suddenly your reputation for safety and hygiene is on the line. How can you avert a minor drama turning into a major crisis?Undetected contamination of a production batch with a foreign body is a horror scenario for any food or beverage manufacturer, regardless of whether it’s in the baked goods, processed meat, dairy products or health and pharmaceutical products sector.Despite best efforts, however, accidents do happen. For this reason, manufacturers implement the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) approach. Here they employ visual detection methods (such as coloured components), and x-ray and metal detection devices to control and assure production quality and the integrity of batches and product.
HellermannTyton understands the needs of food and beverage processors. Our experience in the sector goes back further than any of our competitors. After all, we were the first to bring a detectable plastic cable tie onto the market.
Today our metal content cable solutions provide one of the highest levels of detectability – ranging from a ferrous sphere setting of 1.0 mm to 3.4 mm using industry-accepted measurement techniques. Even distribution of metal content throughout our products means that small fragments, like the one in the worst-case scenario outlined above, can be easily detected.Correct water content is crucial for the smooth installation of MCT cable ties. In contrast to standard plastic cable ties, the metal content in specially detectable MCT ties makes them more susceptible to becoming brittle when they dry out. The correct moisture level ensures that the moving parts remain supple and flexible at installation. We guarantee that the material absorbs the correct amount of moisture when packaged. It is therefore extremely important to ensure that MCT cable tie bags remain sealed when stored, especially in dry and cold environments.
