Commercial Food Processing Equipment PTFE Coating Refurbishment Service

Orion's Refurbishment Services for the nonstick release surfaces of high-volume cooking and baking surfaces for commercial food processing lines provides renewed non-stick surface service life. Each type of cooking or baking device has somewhat different end use requirements. We provide a restored surface to provide long-term nonstick performance characteristics, using premium non-stick, food contact coating materials including industrial Teflon® coatings.

Food removal prior to refurbishment of coating

Teflon® coating services and refurbishment starts with a careful removal of all food products and the entire original nonstick coating (fig. 1 - part as received). The result is a precisely textured and cleaned surface, providing a foundation to restore the non-stick properties. Orion has perfected the coating removal process with automated machinery that creates the optimum clean, textured metal surface. We prevent over-roughening of the substrate due to excessive grit blasting. This closely controlled procedure maintains the substrate and maximizes the production life of your asset (fig. 2 - cleaned and retextured).
