Prevent the spreading of disease and food contamination by using stainless steel.

It is interesting to discover how the benefits of stainless steel extend beyond personal cookware.  Many home kitchens understand the advantages to cooking with this metal and that is why it is a preferred material for cookware and utensils.  It’s durable, corrosion-resistant and has unsurpassed hygienic traits that other materials do not exhibit.  But did you know this extends to commercial industries too?  I have extensively discussed the uses of this metal in the marine, oil and gas, and environmental clean-up settings but what about the presence of stainless steel in the dairy and food processing business?

Prevents the Contamination of Johne’s Disease in Dairy Cows

Scientists have learned that when farmers use stainless steel water troughs then Johne’s disease within dairy cows is prevented.  According to the USDA, this may save a dairy business as much as “$200,000 per year in a herd of 1,000 dairy cows.”  These financial fatalities mainly consist of a production decrease/profits loss and cover the necessary removal costs of infested animals.

Prohibit Food Contamination through Stainless Steel Tanks

Stainless steel plays a vital factor in the food production industry.  Stainless steel tanks are essential to the effectiveness and success of this business.

Stainless steel does not corrode and is highly rust-resistant meaning when chemicals and food acids come into contact with this material the tanks stays intact.  This preserves the food nutrients and tastes while excluding any undesirable toxins and/or chemicals from entering the mixture.

How to Choose High Grade Stainless Steel

High steel grades can even be found in your home kitchen.

Stainless steel is a corrosion resistant, durable and lustrous material that is used in many different commercial industries.  Thus, many business owners and project managers find themselves selecting high quality stainless steel.  But how do they do it?  What do they look for?  To find out specifics about what stainless steel grade is right for your project then call one of our stainless steel and nickel alloy bars expert.  In the meantime, here is a brief overview on what is standard for different industries.

For your food processing needs, a Grade 304 is a popular option.  It is chosen the most based upon its ability to endure various acids found in food without becoming corroded or damaged.  Think about citrus fruits.  They contain acid that eats away at other materials on contact.  But the Grade 304 is resistant to such disintegration making it the forerunner for sinks, steam tables and other necessary products in a commercial kitchen.

Due to the high content of salt in the ocean, a water tank or boat needs to be produced from a material that does not falter under such circumstances.  Think about what holds up under such conditions.  Does the material you are choosing rust?  Is there an alloy that works best for this industry?  A high grade stainless steel answers these questions and more.

To find out how to distinguish high quality grades from the rest then just give us a call.  We are here to help you.
