Why Stainless Steel Crane for Pharmaceutical Processing

25 Apr 2024 News

Cleanroom cranes has been playing a major role in pharmaceutical processing. In the medical industry, cranes need to meet strict cleanliness standards to avoid generating excessive dust. These standards require the crane to meet either Class C or Class D clean room requirements. To achieve this, cranes are typically designed using various materials such as structural steel coated with silver ion anti-corrosion coatings, stainless steel structures, or carbon steel structures equipped with stainless steel channels. The choice of material depends on the specific needs of the customer.

But including the lifting crane, many devices in pharmaceutical workshops are made of stainless steel, do you know the reason?

Grade 304/316 Stainless Steel are the two most common materials for the pharmaceutical industry.

304 SS grade is the most widely used grade in the pharmaceutical industry. Due to its high strength and corrosion-resistant steel series, 304 handles corrosive liquids very effectively. Grade 304 Stainless Steel crane was given the excellent formability and weldability which can be also helpful in machinery parts and processing equipment.

316 grade stainless steel is the second most austenitic stainless steel with the addition of 2% molybdenum making it greatly resistant to chloride ions too.

Advantages Of KFCS Stainless Steel Crane

Stainless steel cranes offer numerous benefits for the pharmaceutical industry.

Firstly, they have excellent corrosion resistance and can withstand the erosion of acids, alkalis, salts, and other chemical substances commonly used in the production process. This ensures that the lifting crane remains safe and durable even with prolonged use.

Secondly, maintaining a sterile environment is crucial in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology fields. Stainless steel hoists have smooth surfaces and are non-porous, making them easy to clean and disinfect. This reduces the growth of microorganisms and helps ensure a hygienic production environment.
