Teflon Coating for Food Processing St. Cloud
Sticky sugars and moist flours have the ability to gunk up machines quickly. This can make it extremely frustrating to keep production moving forward when these are the products you work with every day. Liquid lubricants are typically not an 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 enjoyable as a rainy, forty degree June day. Chemours® Teflon® coatings and Whitford coatings are excellent options for covering parts that are used in the commercial processing of food. Coating Solutions will coat any part that is needed for food processing machinery in St. Cloud – that is, any part that can stand up to high cure temperatures.

Nonstick Coatings for Food Production St. Cloud
Fluoropolymer finishings are regularly selected as the best choice for coating parts that are used in food processing machinery. Food has much less chance of clinging to fluoropolymers as opposed to other materials that are sometimes utilized in the food processing industry these days. But it has many more uses than just making sure that pork cutlets don’t stick and burn. The high release of fluoropolymers produces a much more uniformed result when products are taken out of molds. Flour doesn’t adhere to large hoppers, and dough rollers can function nonstop. And fluoropolymers have been approved by the FDA so you know that they are ok to make contact with food. For the food processing industry, it’s a wise decision to have all parts that will be in contact with food coated with Teflon® or another fluoropolymer coating.
Financial Benefits of Teflon® and Fluoropolymers
The nonstick advantages of fluoropolymers means a higher output of product as machines are not shut down as regularly in order to remove buildup and scrape and clean. And when cleaning does need to take place, nonstick means that parts coated with fluoropolymers are a piece of cake to clean and are unaffected by strong cleaning chemicals. Less cleaning saves many businesses in St. Cloud additional cleaning agent usage and labor costs. And even more money can be saved because of the fact that parts coated with fluoropolymers is usually 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, subsequently, comes with lower maintenance expenses. This is all why covering parts with Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings is the financially wise choice for many businesses in St. Cloud, MN.
Heat Resistance of Teflon® Coatings
Teflon® and fluoropolymer coatings are very resistant to heat, which makes them a great option for equipment used with food processing. These coatings can function superbly at continuous temperatures of up to 500°F (260°C), or 600°F at interrupted intervals. And, obviously, 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 properly for a longer time periods. The cost-effectiveness of these coatings make them the best decision for companies working with food processing equipment.
