Design of the housing in the form of a groove should be avoided if possible. If this is not feasible, good housing and seal cleanability must be guaranteed.
The hygienic design requirements can be met by having a particularly large groove base radius, avoiding notches and having a split housing.
For WIP/WOP cleaning it is important to be able to remove and replace the seal without damaging it.
Given a suitable machine design, cleaning in place is also possible.
