Stainless steel is among the most favored investment casting material choices to use in the food industry. Typical cast stainless steel components used in food equipments are: meat grinder parts, beer valve bodies for breweries, tap and faucet, etc. The best material for food equipment is corrosion-resistant, easy to clean and has smoothly bonded seams. Stainless steel is easily able to provide each of these requirements. Here are six benefits of using stainless steel castings for food equipment:
This is a material that is easily cleaned after use. There is a very low risk of bacteria, grime or dirt building up because stainless steel casting has no cracks or pores. This makes the food equipments really easy to clean with no small gaps for bacteria to hide.
It is a solid and reliable material that can put up with years of regular use. Even with the constant heating and cooling when used, stainless steel castings continue to maintain its smooth surface on the internal and external surfaces.
Stainless steel castings have the potential to last a long time because of the ability to resist corrosion. Even though the initial cost of buying stainless steel castings is higher, its ability to last for 20+ years and require no maintenance means it is the most practical choice in the long run. They last a lot longer than alternatives in earthenware or ceramics.
A great quality of stainless steel casting part is the fact it is a non-reactive material when it comes in contact with water or food. This means the food equipment will not take on the odors or flavors at the time of the working process. A further benefit of this particular point is the easier clean up after use.
Stainless steel casting component has a classy and elegant finish that easily complements the traditional to the modern environment. While it isn’t possible to have this material in a variety of different colors, there is still plenty of variations in the finish with a choice of matt, textured, or a smooth, shiny look.
