Piab’s new metal detectable food suction cups
Industrial vacuum equipment manufacturer Piab has launched a series of metal detectable food contact cups.
Designed to meet the most stringent hygiene standards and suitable for direct picking of everything from chocolate pralines to fish fingers, the range comprises 13 cups and is designed with:
- Funnel shaped bellows
- Thin lips for excellent grip on irregular food surfaces
- A stable body
- Large vacuum flow orifice
- Metal detection as standard.
All these features guarantee a steady hold on products, even at high speed and in quickly decelerating systems, the company says. In addition, the cups have no pockets in which dust or dirt can collect, the material is approved by FDA and meets EU regulation 1935/2004. They are available with stainless steel (316L) fittings, and all, except for the oval cups, are available with a blue plastic, detectable, food grade fitting.
