Our stainless steel conduit, fittings, and applicable accessories are ideal for food and beverage processing applications due to stainless steel’s ability to stand up to the often acidic content of wash-down chemicals commonly used in these environments.
Cleaning agents and chemical disinfectants can quickly corrode other equipment, promoting bacterial growth and enabling food contamination. Stainless steel is a safer, more hygienic choice in these applications as it provides resistance to pitting and stress corrosion cracking and is easily sterilized to prevent bacteria growth.
There are typically three constants and requirements when working with food or beverage processing workstations and equipment: extremely easy to clean, corrosion and damage resistance and easy to sanitize. Cleanliness and hygiene are critical in these environments, and stainless steel has proven to have a wide range of preferred qualities in comparison to traditional conduit systems used, such as galvanized, aluminum and PVC Coated.
The smooth, polished surface of Calbrite®‘s stainless conduit and fittings not only promote cleanliness but also greatly reduce the risk of corrosion.
