US-based JW Winco Inc, a Ganter Company, is a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components and is now able to supply GN 1580 nuts with hygienic design.
The GN 1580 stainless steel nuts are certified according to European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group guidelines, making them ideal for use in hygienic areas. “The sealed flange surface enables components to be mounted without dead spaces,” said John Winkler, CEO, office of the president, at JW Winco. “The high-quality finish, as well as the large corner radii and closed surfaces, prevent adherence of dirt and facilitate cleaning.”
Available in either a matte or polished finish, the FDA compliant sealing ring on the nuts is made of a hydrogenated acrylonitrile butadiene rubber and is temperature resistant from -25°C (-13°F) to 150°C (302°F).
JW Winco is a manufacturer and distributor of inch and metric standard parts – offering an extensive selection of plastic, steel and stainless steel adjustable levers, cabinet U-handles, revolving and retractable handles, hand wheels, hand cranks, shock absorption mounts, levelling mounts, hand knobs, spring, ball and indexing plungers, jig, fixture and fastening components, retaining magnet assemblies, toggle clamps, universal joints, oil sight glasses, and metric tools for the industrial and commercial equipment industries.
