Food machinery and equipment are commonly used in materials such as metals and alloys. The parts in contact with the food medium are required to be harmless to food and not pollute the food medium. Therefore, the main material of Darin food machinery and equipment is food-grade stainless steel. The following Darin machinery will be introduced in detail.
The main components of stainless steel are iron, chromium, nickel, and a small amount of carbon and other elements. Stainless steel is also called stainless acid-resistant steel. It is an alloy steel that can resist corrosion in air or chemically corrosive media.
1. Good corrosion resistance of stainless steel
Food materials contacted by food machinery and equipment are generally acidic or weakly alkaline, and some foods are acids or alkalis themselves, such as acetic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, fatty acids, etc.; Corrosive metabolites are produced.
Therefore, the materials used in food machinery and equipment must be resistant to corrosion, so as to avoid damage to the machine itself, and more importantly, to avoid food contamination.
2. Will not contaminate food materials
Some metal ions melt into food, which will destroy food nutrition and flavor, and even damage human health. Therefore, food machinery and equipment are strictly required not to contaminate food materials.
Stainless steel is insoluble in food solutions and does not produce metal ions that detract from food flavor.
3. Stainless steel has good mechanical properties
Stainless steel is easy to stretch and bend, and has good welding performance. After the surface is polished, it has a beautiful appearance and is easy to clean. Good mechanical properties can be maintained at high and low temperatures.
4. Other advantages
Food machinery and equipment made of stainless steel have many advantages such as no rust, no discoloration, and easy removal of attached food.
Therefore, the main material of Darin food machinery and equipment is food grade stainless steel.
