Power and Control Cables
Within the food and beverage industry all electrical components must be resistant to a very wide range of chemical, thermal and physical stresses so that they can be used in refrigerated areas and moist environments. It is particularly important that the electrical components hold resistance to the aggressive acidic and alkaline industrial cleaning agents used to maintain hygiene standards.
As a result we realise that it could be difficult to find the correct product. Lapp has a comprehensive range of standard and specialised products which meet the requirements of the food, beverage and packaging industries.
Our proven and tested range of products contain a solution for all applications.
Control and Connection Cables
The ÖLFLEX® ROBUST range is our generation of flexible control and connection cable.
Manufactured with Lapp TPE outer sheath compound P4/11, highly resistant to vegetable-based oils, these cables are flexible, UV resistant, tough and manufactured with RoHS compliant materials.
They are robust when exposed to fresh, processed and sewage water - making it a wash down resistant cable. In addition when exposed to beverages such as fruit juices, wine, beer, lemonades when cold, warm or for a limited time hot, and also several chemicals.
ÖLFLEX® ROBUST cables are ideal for applications where they are in contact with vegetable fats, animal fats and oils, dairy products such as milk, butter, cheese or fish and meat processing.

ÖLFLEX® POLYURETHANE Cables
Lapp offers an extensive range of Polyurethane sheathed cables suitable for a wide range of applications where flexible cable with very high resistance to both mechanical and chemical damage is required.
Polyurethane sheathing offers a tear resistant material with high tensile strength combined with a high resistance to tangling and knotting.
All Lapp Polyurethane cables are microbe and Hydrolysis resistant.

Highly Flexible Chain Cables
The ÖLFLEX® FD range of cables offer one of the most flexible ranges available.
They are specially designed for high technology applications, notably in areas where automation is at an advanced level and where stresses placed on conventional cables can cause fatigue.
Where automatic handling equipment and robotics are in constant use the extra flexible qualities of the range will withstand more rigorous and heavy duty operations.
At each stage of the cable construction attention has been paid to the areas where stress could have a detrimental effect. The make up includes very fine wire conductor stranding with a high rate of twist on the strands and also in the twist of the conductors forming the core bundle. The increased rate of twisting reduces stress on the conductors at the point of bending.
Other features of the range include extra chalk, textile separator tapes, and a specially formulated Polyurethane sheath for hydrolysis and microbe resistance.
