Industries such as pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, and food manufacturing must meet the highest quality standard to ensure maximum hygiene and safety for consumers. This standard includes the surfaces that come into contact with the processed products as well as any machinery used within the area or during the process. Using quality products made from quality materials is fundamental in ensuring standards are upheld.
Stainless steel meets quality standards amongst these industries. Stainless steel is a form of steel containing chromium, making it resistant to tarnishing and rust. Further, it is an alloy characterised by higher resistance to oxidation and corrosion due to the near absence of carbon – <+0.07%. There are many different stainless steels but can be divided into five core groups – austenitic, ferritic, duplex, martensitic, and precipitation hardening.
Benefits of Stainless Steel
- High resistance to corrosion
- Doesn’t need protective coatings
- Durable and impact resistant – even in extremely hot or cryogenic temperatures
- Easy to clean, making it easy to maintain hygiene standards
- Provides long term value
For the most common applications, Delfin machines are made of steel and painted according to a meticulous process. However, due to the need to meet different quality standards within particular industries, Delfin have rose to the challenge. That is, some Delfin vacuums are partly or fully manufactured with different types of stainless steel and internal and external surface treatments. Parts supplied in stainless steel can range from the container, casing, frames, trolleys, electrical panels and more. Such machines make them the perfect solution for industries like pharmaceutical or food manufacturing, that have very high standards of cleanliness and production.
The Delfin accessories and attachments range is made from high quality polymeric materials. For example, nitrile rubber and silicone, which are suitable for food contact applications. Food grade stainless steel accessories are also offered as a high quality option. They offer optimum hygiene and avoid contamination due to their resistance to oxidisation and corrosion.
