Food processing began centuries ago when families and villagers preserved food through salt preservation, fermentation and drying. Food processing is now a billion-dollar industry with amazing technological advancements that provide convenient, long-lasting food. Stainless steel mixing tanks have played a key role in the advancement of food production in the past and continue to play a key role in improving the food production industry today.
Why choose stainless steel?
Stainless steel comes in many different grades, depending on the percentage of alloy used in its production. This means that certain alloy combinations are more durable than others. Therefore, it is important to use the proper grade in food processing.
Stainless steel tanks are the most common choice in food manufacturing because of the many inherent qualities of stainless steel that help protect food and improve related processes. Stainless steel does not corrode and, depending on the percentage of alloy, is very resistant to rusting. The tanks don't leak chemicals or other particles into the food, so they don't add or steal any flavor from the food, nor leave any unwanted chemicals or toxins behind.
Stainless steel is also a good conductor, which means it can transfer heat as needed and it is relatively easy to control or regulate the temperature. This can be an extremely important function, depending on the food or liquid mixed in the tank and the desired result.
Who uses food grade tanks?
Countries have very strict regulations on food handling and processing to ensure that all products are hygienic and free from harmful bacterial growth. Any company dealing with fruit, meat, milk or vegetables needs reliable tanks to mix, store and otherwise handle food that will be used for public consumption.
When used as storage material, stainless steel tanks protect various foods by ensuring they are not exposed to oxygen. Foods such as olive oil can be stored for up to a year, but if exposed to oxygen, it can change the flavor and destroy the oil. Because stainless steel does not allow oxygen or corrosive particles to enter the mixture, it is the perfect choice for tank metal.
Whether you're mixing citrus and juice, or storing food for extended periods of time, food-grade stainless steel tanks are an advantageous option. At DEGONG, we can customize them to suit your needs and fit your available space so that your work in the food industry is both safe and efficient.
