How Stainless Steel Contributes to an Unpolluted Food and Water Supply

Posted on July 7, 2012 by Reda Abouleish

There is a reason why stainless steel is used in kitchens. It does not contaminate our food and water.

All over the globe, health and environmental organizations and government officials are paying attention to the negative affect certain substances have on our hygienic food distribution and clean water supplies.  By doing much research and studying, it has been proven internationally that stainless steel does play a major role in keeping our food and drinks uncontaminated.  There is everything from stainless steel utensils, which do not corrode or alter in chemistry when touching our food preventing contamination from developing to water treatment steel pipes utilized in filtering waste from the water keeping our supplies clean.  The key is the metal’s attribute not to change, fray or decompose when coming in contact with beverages, food substances, protein, coloring and other nutritional elements that need proper care, processing and delivery.

It is essential for water to remain untainted ensuring the state of health and lives of people around the world.  The higher quality that is delivered to a region the more stable the health of that community becomes.  It is why the water treatment industry and global governments take strong measures to protect and stow treated water for long periods of time. To do this, water facilities must use a type of material that does not vary when managing water.  Stainless steel is able to fulfill this goal.

2 Ways Stainless Steel Contributes to a Clean Environment

Posted on July 6, 2012 by Reda Abouleish

Stainless steel is one of the reasons why we have clean water.

Stainless steel has many positive affects upon the environment versus other materials.  For one, it is 100% recyclable.  That is a common benefit frequently mentioned when discussing this material.  However, there are many other advantages to using stainless steel that impacts the environment in a positive way.  Here are two ways it helps.

Improves Air Quality

With the prices of gas going up, it is no wonder people are turning more towards diesel fuel.  This is a smart option not only on your wallet but for the physical world around us.  Did you know that diesel filters eliminate more than 90% of black smoke and more than 80% of soot created from diesel engines?  This improves the air quality for us all.  This is in direct correlation with steel since diesel filters are made from stainless steel itself.

Keeps Our Water Supplies Clean

Clean water is essential to survival for animals, plants, the land (in its entirety) and humans.  If water is contaminated the land is deprived and starves.  The land suffers along with other plants, animals and us.  Thus, clean water assists with the land flourishing with harvest and nutrition for all the plants, animals and us to consume and grow from.  Stainless steel helps us achieve this goal.  The nominal risk of it corroding keeps water levels clean and prevents bacteria from growing.  This is why it is an ideal choice.

Why a Water Waste Treatment Plant Uses Stainless Steel

Posted on June 26, 2012 by Reda Abouleish

Waste water treatment plants choose stainless steel for its durable, corrosion-resistance and low cost characteristics.

When building, managing and running a water waste treatment plant, there are many things to consider.  Think about what materials to use for the aeration pipes, valves, tanks and transfer pipes.  Consider what material selection for the machinery is corrosive-resistant without adding toxic chemicals to the water.  Factor in what metal fulfills all of these standards including keeping the maintenance and repair costs low compared to other materials.  The answer is stainless steel.

Steel grades 304 and 316 are the two most commonly used grades for waste water treatment processes and water filtering systems.  Other materials were considered in the past but they do not outshine the advantages found in this metal.  For instance, HDPE is a known substance found in plastics throughout the US.  It carries a chemical resistance quality similar to that of steel.  However, it decomposes when exposed to light.  This is a difficult and pricey problem to face in the waste and water treatment industries.

Additionally, these two grades do not have a risk of thinning through usage.  This is important when constructing the pieces.  It frees up your selection options.  You are no longer limited to hefty pieces.  Instead, choose thin, lightweight sections and be confident in knowing they are built from strong stainless steel grades that contain low upkeep expenditures throughout its entire long service life.
