Stainless steel in the food industry

Stainless steel equipment for the food industry
Stainless steel is used in many areas of architecture, industry and everyday life, and it is impossible to imagine our lives without this material.

Stainless steel has also become an important material in the production of equipment for the food industry, from hygiene equipment to tanks and trolleys, for example.

Tisco steel : stainless steel treatments for the food industry
The Tisco steel product range for food industry equipment is as varied as the industry itself. We offer you :

polished and mirror-finished, brushed and satin-finished stainless steel surfaces in thicknesses up to 30 mm and dimensions up to 16 000 x 4000 mm, which are produced with extremely low roughness values (Ra) (< 0.1) and are a good alternative to 2R/BA quality sheets;
functional and aesthetic hydroformed and embossed surfaces;
For customers in the food industry, Tisco steel is the ideal partner when it comes to popular and new solutions for the treatment of stainless steel surfaces of the highest quality!
Tisco steel is at your disposal for all your projects!

Types of stainless steel equipment for food processing
Stainless steel is a high-quality material that is widely used in the food industry, for example, for the production of

various industrial equipment for food and wine production (wine-making tanks, wine agitators, production and mixing tanks, melting tanks, maceration tanks, etc.)
tanks and containers for storing finished products;
transport tanks and containers for liquid and powder products.
Why is stainless steel so widely used in the food industry?
In the past, materials such as wood, glass, copper, brass, steel and later plastic were the traditional materials used for the production, processing, storage, transport, presentation and consumption of various foods.

While the use of these traditional materials was quite limited, the introduction of stainless steel into the food industry soon proved that its unique properties offer many advantages such as:

corrosion resistance
The smooth and very stable chromium oxide protective layer not only offers a high level of corrosion protection, but also makes the material easy to clean and resistant to aggressive media such as fruit acids and detergents.

This means that bacteria, fungi and microbes have no surface to attack, which guarantees a very high level of hygiene for stainless steel objects.

Stainless steel is very easy to work with and, due to its excellent formability and weldability, can be used in a wide variety of applications comfortably.

In addition, stainless steel can gain in functionality through appropriate surface treatment. For example, good roughness values (Ra) can be achieved by polishing.

The adhesion of foodstuffs to the metal surface is reduced with stiffened and hydroformed sheets. This increases the flow of goods in production and packaging processes, improves productivity and reduces unnecessary and costly time losses.

In addition, these surface treatments make the surface of stainless steel more visually attractive, which is a good point for use in the food industry:

·in gastronomy,
·in restaurants,
·in wholesalers,
·in grocery shops,
·in private and everyday use.
·The equipment thus combines functionality and aesthetics and meets the highest requirements in both areas.

Which stainless steel complies with European legislation and is approved for use in the food industry?
The requirements for materials used in the food industry and that come into contact with foodstuffs are defined by European Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004.

According to this regulation, these materials must not contain or release substances harmful to human health into food. At European level, it is well established that stainless steel meets this requirement.
