Sanitary Welding


Recommended Posts

depends on what part your talking about.

not normally. but it should be passivated. welding on stainless will destroy the top protective layer, and since stainless is made of chromium and iron, it could rust. so when you passivate the weld it cleans it and allows it to react with the oxygen in the air and reform the protective layer. takes about 48 hours.

Never use bleach on stainless steel it will destroy it.

sanitary welds are mainly for food industry like milk, the weld is smooth and will not hold any junk that could rot or turn bad and spoil other batches.

in a still the boiler will clean its self with the high heat and the up parts also, but the alcohol will kill any thing else.
