Product description


Leveling feet GN 20 with mounting holes comply with the guidelines of the EHEDG, the 3-A sanitary standard 88-01 and the DGUV testing principles, making them extremely suitable for use in hygienic areas.

The bottom seal protects the area beneath the foot plate from dirt. For this, the foot must be screwed on using the fixing holes and compressed accordingly. Hygienic fastenings, e.g. GN 1580 screws and nuts, and the correct position of the mounting holes are essential. The sealing ring above the adjustment sleeve enables fastening without dead space. Due to the wiper or the joint sealing ring, the moving components are sealed against the environment.

The high quality finish prevents adherence of dirt and facilitates cleaning.

The values listed in the table for static load capacity refer to a purely vertical load in relation to the leveling foot. Under normal operating conditions bending loads or angular loads are not uncommon and result in a reduction of load capacity, which must be taken into consideration.

Sealing concept

With the example of a GN 20 Hygienic Design levelling foot, the illustrated design shows how the various seal configurations can be designed.

Drawing Application example GN 20


For the standard parts which are listed in Hygienic Design, seals have the central function of protecting dead spaces, gaps and cracks from the penetration of cleaning fluids or product residues.
For this, a defined pre-tension or pressing of the seals and wipers is necessary for a reliable and permanent seal in the installed condition. Within the Hygienic Design product family, seal installation spaces and seal cross sections are calculated and designed with simulation software, so that the necessary surface compression is achieved on installation and the seal material is not subjected to excess pressure.
A fundamental differentiation can be made between static and moving seals:
Is the static seal, application examples shown below the top faces the mounting surface (sealing ring) and the bottom faces the contact surface (bottom seal), so that the corresponding pressure is achieved by tightening. It should be ensured that all surfaces which make contact with the seal have a surface finish of al least Ra 0.8 µm.
The moving seals on the adjustable sleeve (wiper) and the ball joint (joint sealing ring) of the foot are designed so that they allow adjustment in both height and angle. With these too, the installation space together with the cross section of the seal ensures a gap-free, pre-tensioned seal.
Depending on the version and the type of use, it may be the case that seals may need to be replaced in case of damage or for preventative maintenance. For this, Ganter supplies the relevant seals as spare parts or offers these under Sealing Rings GN 7600 as standard parts for spare parts.
