TSS s.r.l. Engineered Coating Solutions
TSS | Thermal Spray Services offered for the Food and Beverage Industry
TSS thermal spray coatings for food processing equipment provide excellent wear and corrosion resistance. Similar coatings are also used to provide wear and corrosion resistance on similar equipment used to process pharmaceuticals and personnel hygiene products.
Friction without sticking helps many production lines.
Pump Shafts, Sleeves
Food processing pump shafts, sleeves can be coated for improved wear resistance. The surfaces typically coated on shafts and sleeves are either seal or bearing surfaces. The coated surfaces can be ground to very smooth finishes.
Impellers are typically coated with carbide containing materials for abrasive and erosive wear protection.
Coatings Homogenizer plungers used to homogenize products such as milk and juices are coated with carbide and oxide ceramic coatings for wear and corrosion protection. These coatings have very high hardnesses 1200-1500 Vickers, (71-76 HRC), are very dense, (less than 1% porosity typical).
Food Processing Pump Seal
Food processing mechanical pump seals, made out of stainless steel materials such as 316L SS, are coated with metal oxide ceramics such as chromium oxide and with carbide containing materials for greatly enhanced wear resistance. The coatings are for contact with food. The hardness of the coatings is 70-75 HRC, which is much harder than most food materials that cause the wear.
Other typical thermal sprayed industry applications in the Food and Beverage Industry industry:
- Conveyor systems
- Knives and blades
