Key Features And Benefits Of A Perforated Stainless Steel Table
Perforated stainless steel tables are commercial equipment designed for use in controlled environments such as cleanrooms, laboratories, hospitals, and other medical facilities, where the environment must be kept as clean as possible.
Most cleanrooms are used in manufacturing or scientific research, where high levels of cleanliness are required because pollutants such as dust, airborne microbes and aerosol particles can easily affect production or research results. Perforated stainless steel tables are also useful in a variety of other industries and facilities, including food processing and restaurant kitchens.
Contaminants are a major issue in any cleanroom and solid stainless steel tables can sometimes exacerbate the problem. They obstruct laminar flow and create an envelope of stagnant air right over the work surface. This stagnant air may contain small particles, which may collide with larger particles to form more harmful particles that can disrupt cleanroom operations.
Features and Benefits of Perforated Stainless Steel Tables
1. Clean & High-Tech Look
Stainless steel tables have always been known for their clean and polished appearance. The elements that are used to create stainless steel gives it a lustrous and bright appearance that is easy to maintain. It works well in any interior, but especially in commercial facilities where things must be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
2. Excellent Resistance to Corrosion
Stainless steel is an alloy and the majority of them contain at least 10.5% of chromium, which reacts with the oxygen in the air to form a protective layer that makes it highly resistant to corrosion and rust.
Perforated stainless steel tables are typically made of 304 stainless steel, which is the most commonly used type of stainless steel around the world due to its excellent corrosion resistance. Grade 304 stainless steel is resistant to most oxidising acids and is very easy to sanitise.
The corrosion resistance and easy-to-clean properties are extremely important features of a perforated stainless steel table because they must be kept clean at all times when used in a cleanroom or controlled environment.
3. Minimal Dust Accumulation
Perforated stainless steel tables go through a finishing process known as electropolishing. It is a process that removes a thin layer of material from a metal part, leaving a shiny, smooth and ultra-clean surface finish that helps to reduce particle retention and keep the surface clean.
4. Uniformed Airflow
Perforated stainless steel tables feature uniformed holes punched across the tabletop. These holes allow laminar airflow to flow directly through the work surface, surrounding the parts or machine with fresh clean air while carrying away any airborne contaminants that may have been formed.
This uniformed airflow aids in keeping work surfaces clean and hygienic at all times, which is critical in controlled environments.
Although perforated stainless steel tables are most commonly used in cleanrooms, they can also be used in a variety of other facilities where a sanitary worktop is required.
