Detectable Cable Ties with Mounting Bases
The Ty-Rap® line of Detectable Cable Ties from Thomas & Betts now includes Mounting Bases made from materials that are identifiable by X-ray equipment, metal detectors and visual detection equipment. Mounting bases are available as two- and four-way adhesive-mount and screw-mount models.
“Standard nylon cable ties and accessories cannot be detected,” said Chad Smith, director, product management at Thomas & Betts. “If one of these products somehow falls into a processing or production line, it will contaminate the batch. Stainless steel is detectable, but costly and hard to use. Now that mounting bases have been added to Ty-Rap® Detectable Cable Ties line, manufactures now have a more economical choice for additional detectable products.”
Ty-Rap® Detectable Cable Ties and Accessories are made of either nylon 6.6 (polyamide) or polypropylene, a polymer that gives the product buoyancy for visual detection in liquid processing applications. Both materials contain additives that increase the product’s magnetism and density, enabling its recognition by metal detectors and X-ray equipment. The cable tie’s bright blue color makes it clearly perceptible for easy visual detection, especially in food processing applications.
