Washdown Ready Telescopic Drawer Slides

Sanitation is a number one priority in food safe production environments. Even the smallest amount of rust or corrosion on equipment can result in regulatory fines or downtime. Preventing rust and corrosion in extreme environments, which are often humid and subject to high pressure hot water cleaning with strong chemical agents is challenging.

We design, develop, and manufacture industrial telescopic slides for these environments. Below is an example of a washdown unit made of corrosion resistant stainless steel material.

Washdown Slide Design Procedure

For new designs customer specifications and requirements often provide a good starting point. Whether its a new packaging line, cold storage system, or baking system, sketches or drawing will help with communication so we can thoroughly understand the issues. The more we know about the application the better we can advise you.

Why we care about rust or corrosion?

Maintaining a clean and safe production operation is mission-critical for certain producers. Highly regulated industries in most parts of the world, are subject to significant regulatory oversight.

If a piece of equipment cannot be effectively cleaned and sanitized, a health inspector can place it out of service, causing expensive production delays. Preventing rust and corrosion not only reduces production delays but also minimizes recall risk by increasing overall food safety.

Stainless Steel Advantage

The type of material is a key factor in determining durability against rust and corrosion. Unlike aluminum, stainless steel is non-porous and non-corrosive with a higher resistance to rust from harsh cleaning agents due to its iron alloy made up of iron, chromium, nickel, manganese and copper. However, not all stainless steel is the same.

Chromium and Molybdenum are the most important alloys for corrosion and pitting resistance (see chart below).
