Most of our threaded fittings for the food industry are made of stainless steel (AISI 316) which is a particularly suitable material for the food industry because of its very durable qualities. AISI 316 is an acid proof, stainless steel material which means that it is more resistant than regular stainless steel (AISI 304). For example, it is more resistant to saltwater. Because of the qualities of the material, it makes threaded fittings in acid proof, stainless steel especially suitable for use in food production. In the food industry, hygiene is very important and therefore, it is also important to use materials that withstand chemical cleaning, high pressure cleaning and high temperatures. In this case, stainless, acid proof steel is a good choice of material for your threaded fittings, since it is easy to clean and sterilize. This way, you avoid food contamination. When you choose threaded fittings with the best, possible resistance without risks for rust and other types of corrosion, you ensure that you live up to the strict hygiene requirements in the food business.
