Fabricated Products has outlined the benefits of using stainless over carbon steel for air and dirt separators.
Key features of stainless products:
Extensively more resistant to oxidation by water and biocides, therefore NO contribution to sludge and aeration.
Increased oxygen through aeration causes carbon steel to corrode, however stainless steel will NOT corrode.
Smooth stainless surfaces offer low adhesion of deposits and therefore sludge and magnetite is easily washed and removed 100%.
Stainless is inert in water offering better quality water resulting in minimal bacterial slime, low energy consumption and low cleaning costs.
Reduced Lifecycle Costs - SS Magvent & SS Cleanvent have a longer life and a resistance to corrosion offering limited degradation in service, there is therefore reduced downtime and little costs required for inspection, maintenance and repair.
Reduced Energy Costs - The smooth surface of the new stainless products give reduced friction and requires less energy to pump the water around the system, reducing utility bills.
Lighter Weight - There is approx 40% reduction in the product weight, giving improved handling, easier installation and reduced health and safety issues.
British Design & Manufacture - They are manufactured in the heart of the UK with over 100 years heritage working with stainless steel.
Environmentally Friendly & 100% Recyclable - The Stainless products have hygienic properties which reduce micro bacteria and also have very low bacteria colonisation, ensuring an easy cleaning and environmentally friendly product.
