We recently designed an in-house meat attachment test to determine performance of
stainless finishes used in processing equipment. In a device designed by our technicians, we
tested an electropolished panel on the left, a pickle passivated panel in the center and a
bead blasted panel on the right. The 70% lean beef patty with an internal
temperature of 44 degrees, was placed on each of the stainless finish examples, and the
mechanism was tilted to at least 90 degrees.
The video will show that the electropolished sample demonstrated the least meat
Mepaco, part of the Apache Stainless family, offers mechanical and chemical
finishing in-house. Many customers specify our high-performance finishes to reduce
food safety risk and to create sanitation efficiencies.
