As a commitment to our customers Schenck Process has dedicated a complete manufacturing location to the production of stainless steel equipment. Located in Whitewater, Wisconsin the plant is completely free of carbon steel manufacturing eliminating the potential for corrosion.
The US Dairy 3-A sanitary standard and European Hygienic Engineering Design Group (EHEDG) guidelines for certain human food production require food producers to use equipment that protects food from contamination, can be mechanically cleaned on all surfaces, and can be dismantled easily for manual cleaning or inspection. The guidelines set benchmarks for suitable materials used in the production of food for human consumption. Primarily, because of its corrosion resistance and durability compared with most other materials available, stainless steel is by far the preferred material for fabricating food equipment.
A full line of stainless steel hygienic equipment is manufactured at the Whitewater, Wisconsin facility. Those products include feeders, weighbelts, bag dump stations, cyclones, filter receivers and dust collectors.
