Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the superman of engineering materials. It comes as no surprise that it is the preferred material in the industrial mixing and tank industry. This material is used by just about everyone everyday in some facet yet not many have a clue as to what it is or how its made. The durability of a stainless steel boasts a long life span that stands up to corrosion, chemical damage, and heat damage. This is due to the major alloy elements of stainless steel. These include Chromium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Nicke, Silicon, Sulfur – Phosphorous – Selenium, and Titanium – Columbium – Tantalum. Chromium is somewhat like the secret weapon of stainless steel. It is this addition that makes the steel interestingly unique.

Stainless steel has another distinct and superhero like quality. One could say it has ability to heal itself. Chromium essentially forms an invisible chromium oxide film which is found on the surface of the steel. If the stainless steel becomes damaged and is then exposed to oxygen it exhibits a self-healing effect. This is true in spite of most mechanical and chemical damage. Its also ok to admit that the image below came to mind when we used the phrase "self-healing". Don't worry, we wont alert the geek squad.

During the manufacturing process, nickel, nitrogen, and molybdenum are added. The addition of these elements produces increased corrosion resistant properties. Currently there are over 60 different grades of stainless steel offered around the world. Stainless steel is classified into 5 individual classes based upon each addition of the differing alloys.

The Benefits of Stainless Steel Mixers

A stainless steel mixer offers extreme durability and versatility. These stainless steel industrial mixers are constructed to be used in the most sterile environments. They are engineered with easily cleanable surfaces, outstanding durability, and lightweight portability. It also happens to be one of the most inexpensive options when considering a mixers life cycle. Opting for one of these low maintenance tools offers a host of sanitary mixing operation applications to a bevy of industries that include food, beverage, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics to name a few.

In specifically the food industry is no stranger to stainless steel mixers. The easy to clean aspect of these products makes them a must have particularly in this industry. The food industry is nothing to balk at; as it is billion dollar industry. In fact, many industry aficionados would argue that stainless steel mixers have played a vital role in the industry's progression, success, and product safety. Stainless steel mixers are sanitary and do not affect the flavor of the food being produced. This largely due to stainless steel's resistance to corrosion and potential chemical or particle leakage. Perhaps most importantly, the sanitary nature of these mixers do not harbor unwanted germs. Stainless steel is also a quality conductor which easily allows required heat transfer when its necessary. This simplifies temperature control and regulation which can be a crucial factor in developing food products.

A stainless steel mixer may be just the thing you need to get that business you've been dying to start up and get going. Perhaps you need to increase production of an existing business.
