ELECTRI-FLEX COMPANY, Roselle, IL, announces UL-listed, flexible liquidtight, nonmetallic conduit Type LNMP-Food Grade now has an improved antimicrobial jacketing that offers a wider temperature range and is made with a new food processing blue jacketing. Type LNMP is made of flexible PVC with a nylon reinforcing braid and is ideal for continuous flexing applications as it does not contain a metal core that could fatigue with repeated flexing. Liquatite® Food Grade electrical conduits now include Type LNMP-Food Grade, LAFG, LSSFG, and NMFG and are ideally suited for Food Processing, Pharmaceutical, Bottling Equipment, and Clean Room installations.
Antimicrobial | The flexible PVC jacketing now contains an antimicrobial biocide additive. This additive inhibits the growth of commonly known food processing microbes, such as E. coli, listeria, and salmonella, and even shows a reduction of these microbes over a 24-hour period.
Wider Temperature Range | Type LNMP-Food Grade now offers a wider temperature range, from -37°C to 105°C. These temperatures are critical considerations when installing near freezers, heat-producing food equipment, or with consistently hot washdowns.
Food Processing Blue Jacketing | Food Processing blue is growing rapidly for use in food processing installations due to its increased safety features. The blue color is not found naturally in food products, and therefore can be spotted quickly in fast-moving machinery in the rare event fragments break off and get into the product stream.
Backed by Certifications | Type LNMP-Food Grade is UL listed (cULus) and has been tested to meet the safety standards of Canada and the United States by Underwriters Laboratories. It is a Certified Component for NSF/ ANSI 169 special purpose food equipment, meets FDA CFR21 & NSF 51/61 requirements, is WEEE & RoHS Compliant, and is ARRA Certified.
