Our stainless steel tables are always custom made to order. This means that the accessories our tables are fitted with can be freely chosen to suit the intended use.
The space surrounding the sink should also be considered when the sinks are chosen. If the table is to be equipped with a mixer, enough room must be left for it; for example, a 600-mm deep table can accommodate a 400-mm sink in the depth direction of the tabletop.
The equipment and fixtures can also be equipped with drawer locks where requested. Please contact our sales department for further information on the design of equipment and fixtures for more specific applications.
It is advisable to check the dimensions of the table (width x depth x height) and the number, size and location of the basins when placing the order. The shelves, cabinets and drawers to be fitted into the frame should also be checked before the order is placed.
Stainless steel equipment and fixtures must be cleaned on a regular basis to prevent them from rusting. A water wash is often sufficient for cleaning a stainless steel surface; hot water and steam can be used in special cases.
Impurities and deposits that have adhered to the surface can be removed by rubbing them with an emery cloth, for example. NOTE! The emery cloth must be non-ferrous. It is advisable to first try the treatment on a less noticeable part of the product.
Standard cleaning powders or power detergents such as soda, borax or sodium perborate can be used for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
Alkaline solutions, such as soda, ammonia and diluted soda lye, can be used for dissolving grease. Acetone, petrol, alcohol and similar organic solvents can also be used for removing grease deposits or other water-insoluble matter.
Detergents that contain sulphuric or hydrochloric acid may not be used for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
The sterilising agents used for disinfection often contain sodium hypochlorite or potassium hypochlorite. However, these substances are dangerous to stainless steel as they easily give rise to pitting corrosion. Other disinfectants that contain chlorine, such as chloramines, are also dangerous. The most affordable disinfectant that is suitable for stainless steel is nitric acid; even mild concentration solutions have a bactericidal effect.
TREATMENT AFTER CLEANING
The detergent must be carefully cleaned from the steel surface. Rinsing with plenty of water is usually sufficient for this purpose. If acidic detergents are used, a pre-rinse should be carried out with a neutralising solution, such as soda.
The user must always ensure that the room concerned is sufficiently ventilated, proper protective gear is used and any in-house occupational heath and safety instructions are complied with.
