JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a supplier of standard industrial machine components, is the first to offer and manufacture the new GN 305 Hygienic Design Adjustable Hand Levers.
The adjustable hand levers with solid stainless steel handles are intended for use in hygienic design applications, such as in the packaging, food processing, medical, and dairy industries. The sealed mounting surface enables fastening without dead spaces. The finish and impervious exterior surfaces prevent adherence of dirt and facilitate cleaning.
“These levers are ideal whenever parts have to be clamped in a confined space or in a particular lever position, as the insert is connected to the lever via serrations that can easily be disengaged,” said John M. Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “When pulling up on the handle, the serration frees itself and can be re-located into any required position. Engagement is achieved by releasing the lever.”
The handle features a stainless steel precision casting, while the threaded insert is stainless steel AISI 304. The sealing ring/wiper is made of hydrogenated acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (H-NBR) that is FDA compliant and temperature resistant from -13 °F (-25 °C) to 302 °F (+150 °C).
