The Wonder of Material Behind Automated Laundry Systems (II)
Stainless steel along with aluminium are the most commonly used materials for automated laundry systems. Both have similar but different properties that thrive to ensure the automated laundry racks are able to perform at its very best for as long as possible.
Advantages of Stainless Steel
Corrosion resistance is one of the key properties manufacturers look for, as it plays an important role in the durability of the product. Chromium, the main additive in stainless steel, is the element that gives stainless steel its high corrosion resistant qualities. Furthermore, CAPTAIN automated laundry system uses 7x7 stainless steel wire rope, making it even stronger and more durable.
Fire & Heat Resistance
Chromium and nickel are both alloying elements in stainless steel that gives its ability to retain high strength under high temperatures. This is also a reason why stainless steel is largely used in heat exchangers as well as aircrafts and aerospace applications given its strong properties.
Given the fact that we now live in a new normal, we all know the importance of hygiene. Whether that is washing your hands or keeping your home clean and safe.
Stainless steel is very easily cleaned and sanitized due to it being non-porous, which means it resists lingering germs better than other surfaces such as wood or plastic. Making it the first choice for many strict hygiene conditions such as hospitals and food processing plants.
Steel is the most recycled material on earth. When stainless steel is recycled, it is melted down and formed into new products with no degradation in its performance. In fact, most stainless steel is manufactured from previously recycled materials. Contributing positively to our environment and showing developments to becoming closer to our zero waste goal.
