Food Industry

Stainless steel is widely used in the food industry. It resists corrosion caused by many foods and beverages. Crucially, stainless steel does not contaminate the product in any way, preventing changes in flavour and colouring.
In addition to this decisive factor, stainless steel is a material that is very easy to clean, ensuring hygiene during food processing. Finally, stainless steel is durable and can be 'shaped' to suit food processing and storage.
The stainless steels that are normally used in the food industry are mostly of the austenitic series. In particular of the type AISI 304 (EN 1.4301) and AISI 316 (EN 1.4401). The former (AISI 304) is the most commonly used; while the latter (AISI 316), which also contains molybdenum, has a high resistance to corrosion in a saline environment and is used for special applications.
