Sand & Buff Food Packaging & Industrial Equipment to Specific RA Value

The 3' by 3' stainless steel frame shown here was designed for use as part of a ketchup bottling machine. The manufacturer sent us the frames just after fabrication, preparing them for polishing required a great deal of prep work. All of the welds and grinding marks had to be smoothed out, which was accomplished by sanding.

Once the entire frame surface was smooth and clean we began with a two-step buffing process. A sisal compound was used for the initial buffing, followed by a color compound to reach the #8 mirror bright finish that the customer required. Because this component was to be used in a food processing application the finish had to be consistent throughout, and delivered to the customer clean and ready for assembly. Each unit had the finish verified through visual and profilemeter inspections, ensuring that we reached a RA value below 10.
