Which of stainless steel is better for the food industry?

Posted by:Rain Time:2019.09.03 19:09

In general, 316 stainless steel grade is usually the best option when manufacturing stainless steel containers for this industry. The 316 SS is more chemically resistant in a variety of applications, and especially when working with salt and stronger acidic compounds such as lemon or tomato juice.

However, stainless 430 grade is a good low cost alternative for food manufacturers who need a moderately resistant steel sheet for production processes.

It is important to keep in mind that the resistance properties of both alloys can be improved through electropolishing. This process not only improves the oxide layer that protects the steel, but will make it difficult for food to adhere to steel and be easier to clean.

However, it is important to keep in mind that the maintenance of a stainless steel tray or basket plays a very important role in prolonging its useful life. For example, stainless steel sheets should never be scrubbed with a brush with steel bristles, as this can transfer iron particles to the surface of the stainless steel and compromise its protective oxide layer.

With the right stainless steel alloy, you will have the best stainless steel products for a food business and so you can increase your productivity in the coming years.
