Teflon Coating for Food Processing Mankato
Sticky sugars and moist flours have the ability to jam up machines quickly. This can make it really frustrating when trying to keep production moving forward as these are the products you work with every day. Liquid lubricants are normally not a viable option when operating in the food processing industry as liquid can change the consistency and flavor of food. And let’s be honest, wet bread is about as pleasurable as a rainy, forty degree June day. DuPont Teflon® coatings and Whitford coatings are excellent choices when wanting to cover parts that are used in the commercial processing of food.

Nonstick Coatings for Food Production Mankato
Fluoropolymer finishings are regularly selected as the best choice for coating parts that are utilized in food processing machinery. Food is much less likely to cling to fluoropolymers as opposed to other materials that are sometimes used in the food processing industry these days. But it has many more uses than just making sure that bacon doesn’t stick and burn. The high release of fluoropolymers produces gives food a much more uniformed result when it is taken out of molds. Flour doesn’t adhere to large hoppers, and dough rollers can keep on functioning. And fluoropolymers have been approved by the FDA so you can be certain that they are ok to make contact with food. For the food processing industry, it’s a wise choice to have all parts that will be making contact with food coated with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating.
Financial Benefits of Teflon® and Fluoropolymers
The nonstick advantages of fluoropolymers means more production as machines are not shut down as regularly in order to remove buildup and scrape and clean. And when cleaning does need to occur, nonstick means that parts coated with fluoropolymers are a piece of cake to clean, and fluoropolymers are unaffected by strong cleaning chemicals. Less cleaning saves many businesses in Mankato additional cleaning agent usage and labor costs. And even more money can be saved because of the fact that parts coated with fluoropolymers is normally less expensive than exotic and/or highly polished metals. Teflon® coated equipment also has a much longer lifespan than products fabricated with other material and, therefore, comes with lower maintenance costs. This is all why covering parts with Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings is the financially wise choice for many businesses in Mankato, MN.
Heat Resistance of Teflon® Coatings
Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings are very resistant to heat, which makes them excellent for equipment used with food processing. These coatings work superbly at continuous temperatures of up to 500°F (260°C), or 600°F at interrupted intervals. And, no doubt, they can endure steam cleaning. Everything that is subjected to high heat during food processing, including pipes, valves, gaskets, and pumps can be coated with Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings so that they can function correctly for longer time periods. The cost-effectiveness of these coatings make them the best option for companies working with food processing equipment.
