Preventing spillage in food and chemical environments

Stauff’s highly effective protection plug aims to minimise external spillage and internal contamination on all areas requiring FDA approved materials for industrial and commercial usage.

The company’s Foodline “white” service plug is suitable for the prevention of spillage when handling food and chemicals.

The working principle is based on the Stauff Industrial “yellow” service plug which provides protection in industrial environments.

The Foodline is made from a rubber compound intended for repeated use for the production of consumer articles in contact with food meets in its composition of active substances approved by the FDA – Food and Drug Administration, USA.

The Foodline “white” service plug is a solid shaped plug made of high quality durable rubber, resistant to alcohol or other washing liquids, temperature rated between -25°C to +90°C  for non-pressurised systems and suitable for reuse.

Available in sizes from 1 mm up to 130 mm diameter, the range of each plug allows it to be inserted between a minimum to a maximum pipe size.

The conical lightweight design enables a fast flexible “grab and seal” installation which means – no tools required – to plug.

This ensures a clean work-space in safety-critical areas.

Five individual plug sizes are available, MICRO: 1-10 mm, STD: 5-22 mm, XL: 13-42 mm, INDUSTRIAL: 35-80 mm, INDUSTRIAL: 60-130 mm, with a MIX-BOX blister pack version available combining the MICRO, STD & XL sizes.

Typical commercial industry applications include food processing, for example liquids in pharmaceuticals and food production, for example dairy, meat, beverage plants, bakery, pet, distillation and edible oils.

Production plant equipment examples include; pipework (pipes and coupling fittings), storage tanks and vessels, dispensing and spraying equipment.  In addition they are suitable for use in both during service and storage preventing contaminants from entering system tanks, pipework or hose lines during repair or disconnection.

Typical retail industry applications include beverage dispensers, storage tanks, drums, storage vessels and kitchen equipment for example, boutique breweries and bars, hotels, cafes, restaurants and cruise ships.

In addition, they are suitable also for use for both handling and processing food products preventing contaminants from entering and excess spillage after dispensing.
