Teflon Coating for Food Processing Minneapolis
Sticky sugars and wet flours can gunk up machines in quite a hurry. This can make it extremely difficult to keep production moving along when these are the products you work with on a daily basis. Liquid lubricants are normally not an option when working in the food processing industry as liquid can affect the consistency of the food. Let’s be honest, wet bread is about as desirable as a rainy, forty degree July day. Chemours® Teflon® coatings and Whitford coatings are fantastic choices for covering materials used in the commercial processing of food. Coating Solutions will coat any part that is required for food processing machinery in Minneapolis – that is, any part that can stand up to high cure temperatures.
Items We Typically Coat:

Nonstick Coatings for Food Production Minneapolis
Fluoropolymer finishings are routinely chosen as the preferred option for coating parts used in the food processing. Food doesn’t stick to fluoropolymers as opposed to other materials that are often used in food processing these days. But it has a lot more uses than just making sure that chicken breasts don’t stick and burn to skillets. The high release of fluoropolymers produces a more uniformed product when it comes out of molds. Flour doesn’t stick to large hoppers, and dough rollers can operate continuously. And these are FDA approved coatings, so you know that they are safe for contact with food. For the food processing industry, it’s a good choice to have all parts that come into contact with food coated with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating.
Financial Benefits of Teflon® and Fluoropolymers
The nonstick benefits of fluoropolymers means higher output as machines are not turned off to remove buildup and scrape and clean as frequently. And when cleaning does have to be done, nonstick means that parts coated with fluoropolymers are extremely easy to clean and are unaffected by strong cleaning chemicals. Less cleaning saves many businesses in Minneapolis additional cleaning agent usage and labor costs. And even more money can be saved because of the fact that equipment coated with fluoropolymers is generally less expensive than exotic and/or highly polished metals. Teflon® coated equipment also has a longer life than products made 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.
Heat Resistance of Teflon® Coatings
Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings are very resistant to heat, which makes them excellent for equipment used food processing. These coatings can function correctly at continuous temperatures of up to 500°F (260°C), or 600°F at interrupted intervals. And, therefore, they can stand up to steam cleaning. Everything that is exposed to high heat during food processing, including pipes, valves, gaskets, and pumps can be coated with Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings so that they can work in a proper manner for a longer period of time. The cost-effectiveness of these coatings make them the ideal choice for companies with food processing equipment.
