Operation and Maintenance manuals are available on request
The different families of stainless steels offer varying strength and corrosion resistance properties depending on the composition of the alloy. 304 grade (EN 1.4301) stainless steel contains chromium, nickel and molybdenum both provide strength and corrosion resistance, whilst being appropriate for hygienic and sanitary applications. 316 (EN 1.4408) offers greater corrosion resistance, useful where the severe corrosion hazards exist.
With minimal care stainless steel will last a lifetime. As for any product some maintenance is necessary but with stainless steel equipment this is simplicity itself. Stainless steel resists stains well but occasionally it might dull or show greasy marks. Most satin finish stainless steel has a grain, so always make sure it is cleaned in the direction of the grain.
To clean and brighten stainless steel
- Moisten a cloth with undiluted white vinegar and wipe clean.
- Wash with mild detergent, rinse well and polish dry with a soft cloth.
- Do not use bleach, creams or abrasive materials such as wire wool or silver dip.
- Do not use coarse grit scouring powders or soap filled wire wool
- In hard-water areas diluted JIF will avoid any build up of waterborne deposits.
- Never use hypochlorites or bleach which can cause pitting of the surface.
