The hygienic design of product-carrying plant components is an essential pre-requisite to avoid microbiological contamination, which goes with ensuring the product‘s quality. As part of the overall hygienic concept of a plant, the measuring instruments used must comply with special requirements on material, surface quality, process safety, connection engineering and cleaning in the scope of the CIP/SIP process.
Measuring instruments from WIKA are manufactured in conformity with the GMP guidelines (Good Manufacturing Practice). They meet the stringent requirements of, e.g.:
- FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
- EHEDG (European Hygienic
- Equipment Design Group)
- 3A Sanitary Standards Inc.
- NSF (National Sanitation Foundation)
- ATEX (Directive 94/9/EG)
