Our surface treatments protect food manufacturing equipment from interruptions, keeping productivity high in an industry with increasingly aggressive production and throughput demands.
We provide operations of any size with specially engineered coatings that protect equipment against specific issues like wear, contamination, corrosion and sticking. These coatings effectively prevent slowdowns and stoppages due to part failure and replacement, enabling reliable 24/7 operation over a long lifetime and with consistent product quality.
Each coating family features FDA- and USDA-compliant versions, ensuring surfaces are non-porous, hydrophobic and oleophobic, facilitating cleaning, solving lubrication problems and preventing corrosion. In addition to their use in food equipment, our engineered coatings also keep powder and bulk solids flowing freely in hoppers, feeders and other machinery.
Superior protection against wear, friction and corrosion
Thermal Spray Coatings
This thermal spray composite protects and restores metal parts
Protects aluminum and aluminum surfaces from corrosion and friction
Enhanced Titanium Nitride PVD Coating
Suits tight-tolerance applications and surpasses stainless steel for extreme wear and abrasion performance
Protects ferrous, non-ferrous and mixed metal parts against harsh environments and chemicals
Many candy bars contain fillings like caramel, which sticks to all types of manufacturing equipment. An FDA and USDA-compliant Lectrofluor polymer coating encapsulates parts to prevent buildup and provide stick release, keeping the machines that produce sticky foods running smoothly.
Looking for a USDA- or FDA-compliant coating to keep your food manufacturing or bulk/solids equipment running reliably? Our engineers are available to help you select the right coating.Request a Quote
Keeping packaging equipment up and running is top priority for engineers and plant personnel. Faced with ever-increasing productivity benchmarks based on fast and efficient operation, packaging engineers must continually fight against issues such as sticking, premature wear, abrasion and corrosion. To eliminate these challenges, nano-engineered coatings are being used to protect machine components and solve performance problems in food, pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging.
The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress. That was precisely the position in which the worldwide, leading supplier of such equipment, Pine Instrument Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, found itself.
A company that manufactures seismic streamers relies on Magnaplate’s Tufram surface treatment to prevent wear and stick-slip issues.
