The Importance of Ultra High-Purity in the Food and Beverage Industry

Flow MonitorThe CDC estimates that each year 48 million Americans eat something that makes them ill. Thus cleanliness is of a paramount concern to the food & beverage industry as any contamination can be very expensive. To prevent this, food and beverage manufacturers follow rigorous equipment cleaning and sanitizing regimens, striving to remove any trace of contamination. Steam and other treatments are hard on process equipment though and that’s why food industry standards require the use of 300-grade stainless steel.

Stainless delivers both temperature and corrosion resistance and can be polished to a very smooth finish, helping ensure the safety of the food and supply.
