The Hygienic Usit® from Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies is a secure EHEDG-compliant solution for all hygienically demanding open processes in the food and beverage industries. In combination with special fasteners from NovoNox, complete seal and fastening connections are achievable in accordance with hygienic design standards.

Open and closed processes are distinguished from one another in manufacturing technology. Open processes, such as conching chocolate or dairy filling, take place in facilities that are not sealed off from the environment. Such facilities in food production must be regularly and extensively cleaned and sterilized in accordance with industry regulations. The “Open Plant Cleaning” (OPC) process for open facilities involves cleaning of all equipment surfaces without disassembly. Visit booth 6866 and go to for more information.
