THE INDUSTRIES WE SERVE
- Food and Beverage
The food, pharmaceutical, and medical industries are a few that benefit from using sanitary welds.
Because the food industry deals with manufacturing, preparing, and serving food, it’s important that all the equipment it uses is easily cleanable and sanitary. When the machinery and tools that come into contact with the food are made of a sanitary weld, the chances of contamination are far less likely than if another, rougher material was used. Keeping food-grade equipment clean helps to keep customers who consume food made with those materials safe. Some examples of objects in the food industry made with a sanitary weld include vats, tanks, piping, and other food manufacturing or kitchen equipment.
The pharmaceutical industry must prioritize the cleanliness of its equipment, just like the food industry. Like contaminated food, drugs that are contaminated by the equipment used to make them can pose a serious risk to the health of consumers. One common type of sanitary weld in the pharmaceutical industry is the tubes and pipes used to transport chemicals.
The medical industry specializes in the health of its clients, so it makes sense that a sanitary material would be required in this industry. Typically, sanitary welds are used for surgical tools, medical machinery, and other lab equipment. After being used, the tools and equipment can easily be sanitized to ensure the health of future patients.
