It ensures that the consumers will not face any health risks. Thus the front panel adapts SUS 304/316 grade stainless steel; IP66/IP69K rated water-and dust-proof, its perfect splash protection brings the great cleanability, and avoids contamination by foodstuffs.
By food-standard Silicone sealant material (CFR 177.2600), the front panel firmly sticks to Stainless steel frame to enhance the leakproofness. Also, adopt Silicone rubber seal strip (FDA 21and CFR 177.2600) that FABS series can be closely attached to the control cabinet to increase adhesion by minimizing grooves and gaps. This allows liquid freely to flow down its surface, and prevents the accumulation of substances.
