Surface Hardening In The Food & Beverage Industry
The Expanite® surface hardening process ensure that your products meet all the demanding requirements of the food & beverage industry e.g. within processing, packaging and filling applications. Compared to traditional wear protection our technology does not only maintain the corrosion resistance of the treated parts but in many cases even improves their resistance to a corrosive attack for example against aggressive cleaning media used during regular CIP (Cleaning in Place) of the equipment in contact with food and beverage. Besides others our process is a direct replacement for hard chrome plating providing enhanced protection against galling, corrosion, wear, fretting and fatigue. We guarantee you the most ideal treatment of your components.
Food contact and FDA compliance
When it comes to food contact the list of certified materials for the affected parts is limited and the most common used stainless steel is the AISI 316/1.4404. On the basis of this material grade the independent Danish Technological Institute evaluated our SuperExpanite process and confirmed food safety (Download). Besides the long list of our satisfied customers - well known in the food and beverage industry for premium state-of-the-art equipment - we can provide you with an FDA master file for our technology. Applying the Expanite hardening will guarantee you the most ideal heat treatment of your products preventing galling and thereby increasing the lifetime of your components.
