Clean in Place Latches

JW Winco Hygienic Design GN 1150 offers IP 66 protection.
JW Winco introduced its Hygienic Design GN 1150 latches, designed to repel dirt and can be cleaned in place. The most recent HD standard part, GN 1150, refers to cam latches of stainless steel with special FDA-compliant seals of EPDM and TPU. Thanks to these seals, the latches have no dead spaces for dirt to collect. The standard part GN 1150 is available in two versions: The “front hygiene” version (FH) offers the HD standard on the actuation side, while the inside satisfies the typical requirements. The “full hygiene” design (VH) features additional seals for HD quality, even on the latch arm side. Both versions offer protection class IP 66 according to DIN EN 60529, meaning that they protect against the ingress of dust and heavy streams of water from any angle.
