Ty-Rap detectable cable ties for the protection of products

Ty-Rap detectable cable ties help avoid unpleasant surprises in contamination-sensitive industries.

Hanover, April 13, 2015 – Ty-Rap detectable cable ties from ABB, industrial components division, incorporate a unique compound (patent pending) that can be detected by X-Ray equipment, metal detectors and visual inspection equipment. They are particularly well-suited to applications in food and beverage processing, the pharmaceutical industry, for chemical and compounds manufacturing, tire and airbag manufacturing as well as for use in all other contamination-sensitive industries using detection systems to track down prohibited foreign materials in finished products.

Ty-Rap halogen free cable ties and accessories are made of detectable Nylon (NDT) and buoyant Polypropylene (PDT) for liquid-processing applications and are compliant with the FDA regulation, which means the products are intended for use in the proximity of food processing, handling and packaging operations. Both versions are supplied in a unique bright blue colour, which increases their visual detectability.

This range of detectable Ty-Rap cable ties are very helpful in putting into place an effective HACCP System (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) in the production processes. The HACCP directive is a systematic preventative approach to food production safety that addresses physical, chemical and biological hazards as a means of prevention rather than finished product inspection. By using Ty-Rap cable ties and accessories from ABB you can reduce the risk of product contamination, product recalls and brand reputation damage.

Ty-Rap detectable cable ties provide you the same advantages as the original Ty-Rap, including a smooth body surface with an infinitely adjustable design, high-performance stainless steel locking device for a perfect fit and superior holding power.
