Significant improvement in service life for vulnerable components
Ketchup filling systems suffer from significant surface degradation when using stainless steel 304/316, resulting in leakage and incorrect filling quantities. The service life of parts is typically no longer than fifteen weeks, in some cases just six weeks.
Hard inchromizing the component gives a chromium content of 35% and a surface hardness of up to 2000 HV. Chromin created a corrosion and wear-resistant surface for the filling systems, now with a service life of more than a year.
The best treatment for extremely wear-resistant parts with a hard and dense structure and good running characteristics. Dimensional changes are minimal.
