Learn how Elasto Proxy helped a manufacturer of food service equipment solve a sealing and insulation challenge with food prep tables.
Food prep tables and other food service equipment generally features stainless steel construction. Strong, durable, and corrosion-resistant, stainless steel is easy-to-clean and ideal as a food contact surface. Surface finishing treatments such electropolishing inhibit bacterial attachment and biofilm formation, which helps to prevent foodborne illness. Food prep tables with refrigeration systems also help keep ingredients at the proper temperatures for freshness and taste.
By following proper procedures, stainless steel surfaces can be kept shiny and clean. That includes metal surfaces where items like sandwiches and salads are assembled, as well as the pans and shelves that hold the ingredients. Yet food prep tables are built with non-metallic materials, too. Silicone seals fill slots and surround metal edges in food storage areas. They cover sharp surfaces, seal gaps, and support refrigeration. All silicone rubber is not the same, however, so it’s important to choose the right compound. (more…)

Elasto Proxy creates specialty seals and custom insulation for manufacturers of mobile equipment. Learn about our custom fabrication capabilities, and how we can help you.
Manufacturers of mobile equipment need custom seals and specialty insulation that can withstand demanding environments. On-road vehicles such as graders, pavers, cranes, and excavators are subject to hot and cold temperatures, driving rain, and blinding snowstorms. Off-road vehicles such as tractors, combines, fellers, and skidders also face wind, water, mud, and snow. Steep grades and rocky terrain can challenge other types of agricultural and forestry equipment, too. (more…)
