Stainless steel operating equipment

8 April 2024

Be it tables, shelves, cupboards, trolleys and containers or mesh boxes – special requirements are placed on the operating equipment in the food industry: The furniture must be extremely robust, protect against injuries and meet the highest hygienic standards. Stainless steel is therefore the preferred material. The execution depends on the right cut and a hygienic design. In this post we look at the benefits and show which items are available in stainless steel.

Hygiene benefits of stainless steel in PHT equipment

  1. The chrome oxide surface remains very smooth even after frequent cleaning. Germs find no breeding ground.
  2. The consistently smooth surface makes cleaning easier.
  3. The material does not react with common cleaning or disinfecting agents (“It is inert”). The surface remains intact when used professionally.
  4. The passive layer of stainless steel prevents ions from escaping from the material. These ions prevent germ formation by destroying bacterial cells.
  5. Stainless steel does not release any particles when exposed to stress. Food and other organic substances are not contaminated upon contact. Containers or surfaces made of stainless steel are therefore ideal for processing and storing food.

Processing advantages of the PHT operating facility

  1. Corners and edges are rounded. Sharp corners and edges can cause injuries. Rounding the edges minimizes potential hazards.
  2. The surfaces are usually polished to a matt finish. Matte surfaces are less prone to scratches compared to polished surfaces.
  3. If necessary, the individual components are completely welded. Flexible fastening systems are only used for furniture where an adjustable solution is explicitly desired or required, such as shelves.
