Food sector: hygiene and precision are of paramount importance

The food sector requires the highest level of hygiene, which is something we take for granted.

It also involves creating large product quantities, which is why precision and reliability are needed. These two words are at the heart of our pursuit of quality.

When working in contact with food, the machinery used must also ensure that the organoleptic characteristics of food are preserved.

Only a few materials meet these requirements, and two of the most suitable ones are AISI 304 steel and AISI 316 steel.

AISI 304 and 316 steels: designed for the food industry

When it comes to machinery for the food industry, it is hard to find materials more suitable than these steels, since they:

  • are stainless, which is essential when handling liquids
  • are highly hygienic
  • do not alter the taste, smell or colour of the materials they come into contact with in any way
  • can also be worked cold
  • withstand both very high and very low temperatures

Over the years, we have invested extensively in training our technicians, in the best equipment and in mastering the most suitable welding techniques for handling AISI 304 and 316 steels so that we can offer the food industry the best possible service.

Not just food: handling water and liquids in the food sector

The food sector comprises not only solid foods, but also the management of water and other liquid foods such as milk.

In such cases, it is of crucial importance to have the necessary experience and know-how in manufacturing joints and ducts and in bending and folding pipes and tubes.

When working with liquids – even at high pressures or high temperatures – imperfections and leaks are unacceptable.

For this reason, at Andreoli & C. we use only the best machinery in the industry, which can manufacture pipes of all sizes and of different profiles with the highest accuracy, ensuring reduced bend radius.

When working in the food sector, know-how and professionalism cannot be improvised. If you are looking for a reliable partner for the production of your machinery components, contact us, and we will be happy to show you the solutions we have specifically designed for the food sector.
