Using Laser Welding to Reduce Micro Bacteria in the Food and Beverage Industry

0

Laser welding in the food and beverage industry has greatly increased due to its ability to maintain and repair equipment to the highest food safety standards at low cost. Recent contamination scares in the dairy sector highlight the consequences of not getting it right.

Welding food grade stainless steel is a delicate job that requires a precise solution tailored to the food application the equipment is used for. Even the smallest niches left by a traditional weld can allow particles of your product to become trapped in the surface and form bacteria. Mobile laser welding is a convenient and cost-effective solution for delivering the high-quality weld and weld surface finish paramount in the food and beverage industry.

 

Eliminate Rough Surfaces

The hygenic requirements of the food and beverage industry places a high demand on the welds that hold tanks, pipes and vessels together. Wherever metal is joined with a weld, a rough surface with edges can be created which leads to an increase in microbial growth. Reducing these burrs or ‘sharp bits’ through laser finishing is one way in which micro bacteria can be kept to a minimum whilst also restoring equipment to a safe state for employees.

 

Restore Stainless Steel

Older methods of welding can inadvertently reduce the integrity of the oxide layer that provides the protective element of food grade stainless steel with its hygienic properties and corrosion resistance. Laser welding is a less impactful process which reduces the impact of welds on the chemical properties of stainless steel.
