Essential bonding of stainless steel equipment

Food production equipment is typically manufactured from stainless steel for reasons of hygiene. The same standards of cleanliness require that large amounts of water and detergent are used in regular ‘clean down’ operations.

The combination of bare metal surfaces and water make earth bonding essential in food production environments, especially where lethal voltages are present in the machines being used.

Earth bonding leads from Copper Braid Products are made from 99.9% pure copper, highly conductive and less prone to corrosion and oxidisation than lower grades of copper. This means there is less resistance to ground and hence the level of protection against electric shock is reduced, provided that adequate fault protection equipment is installed.
