Obtaining food grade finishes

We are a company that’s well known for providing its clients with specialist tubing related services. One of our most notable offerings is tube swaging. Work such as this has proven invaluable to a host of different industries. This is because it has helped them to reach their goals easily.

Designing, creating, collecting, finishing, and cleansing utensils for food-grade applications is tricky. This is due to the fact there are so many specifications to meet. Regardless of the type of alloy you end up using, the material must be safe for use. Food grade and its other variations refer to those materials that possess an aseptic finish. As a result you can reliably and easily sanitise and clean them.

A little help from high-grit abrasives

Food grade finishes have a specific classification. You obtain such a finish with the assistance of a high-grit abrasive. You could decide the finish’s prosperity with a surface roughness average (Ra), which we measure by height in millionths of a micro inch or regular inch.

A profilometer dictates Ra values by shifting a diamond stylus over the facet of your work piece with specified contact force for a certain distance. It estimates compact surface disparities and measures the average to establish the roughness. Since milk products convey more bacteria and spoil more rapidly, all dairy applications need to include finer finishes.

At Multiform Tubes, we regularly work with food-grade stainless steel tubing, in addition to other materials. Using our knowledge of tube swaging, we can alter the products effectively. Our services ensure we provide accurate solutions whilst also maintaining the quality of the surface.

If you would like to take advantage of our services, please give us a call. We can go over your application and specific requirements with you. This ensures we provide the perfect solutions. Whether it is a simple application or a very complex one, we will ensure the tubing is accurate and fits together effectively.
