One thing you can count on in any Food and Beverage plant is that your processing equipment is constantly in use. With the everyday wear and tear and constant cleaning, your equipment can take a real beating. Maintaining your processing equipment is key to your company’s income. Having to replace equipment and losing production time could cost a lot of money.
Much of the equipment in a food processing plant or beverage manufacturing facility is mounted on fabricated steel frames. Hot water, detergents and even food acids/sugars that come in contact with your processing equipment can fuel a rapid increase in corrosion. This accelerated corrosion process will definitely shorten your equipment’s lifespan.
