Why Choose Stainless Steel?
- Easy to Clean: Stainless steel parts can be easily wiped down cutting down on cleaning and maintenance times. It also means that the equipment will last longer. This is because there is no need for harsh abrasives to be used when cleaning.
- Durable: Stainless steel is by nature less prone to physical damage, no flaking paint, or coatings, and is also resistant to corrosion. And while other metals surfaces need to be regularly maintained, stainless steel will likely need less maintenance.
- Chemical-Resistant: Even the heaviest bleaches and other cleaners can be used on stainless steel surfaces without breaking it down.
- Compatible with Heat: Due to its durability, stainless steel can withstand high temperatures and pressures without morphing or altering in any way.
Put simply, it does not harbour bacteria, is more hard-wearing and can withstand humidity, moisture, and corrosion. In other words, stainless steel gearboxes and motors lift the performance of the entire production process.
Stainless steel machinability and other properties make it a great option for food processing. Additionally, it is ideal for a multitude of other industries. To view the products in our range, download our brochure here.
