When using large stainless steel vessels for food processing or pharmaceutical preparations it is of great importance to ensure thorough cleaning between batches. If the surface was to become worn and scratched, particles would remain in the vessels even after cleaning, causing costly contamination problems. The Surtronic Duo and Surtronic S100 series are invaluable for measuring the surface roughness of the inside of the vessels.
Manufacturing specifications and customer requirements can be easily checked to make sure that the finished surfaces meet the correct criteria. This can also reduce unnecessary overworking and provide a traceable report to satisfy quality procedures. The portable nature of the Surtronic range offers superb versatility for on-site inspection and continued monitoring of pharmaceutical and food processing equipment.
