Whether you’re the company holding the patent or the firm taking the product from concept to realization, accuracy and precision are paramount for Original Equipment Manufacture applications. Optimum final product quality improves time to market and end-user satisfaction, which is beneficial for everyone.
Enhance your OEM fluid control capabilities with fittings and adapters from SHF Inc. Our products are manufactured from stainless steel, which is strong, sanitary, and combats degradation.
How OEMs Benefit From Stainless Steel?
When it comes to manufacturing products, OEMs often face the decision of building a component in-house or outsourcing that item to a company that specializes in that field.
At SHF, we know fluid control. Our stainless steel fittings and adapters give you the freedom and flexibility to handle a wide array of fluid flow scenarios. This family of iron-based alloys is tough, corrosion-resistant, and hygienic. Exact performance characteristics vary by grade, but common traits include:
- Aesthetic appearance
- Doesn’t rust
- Withstands heat
- Resists fire
- Non-magnetic, in specific grades
- Resists impact
Stainless steel has high chromium amounts, which generates an invisible and self-healing oxide film on a material’s exterior. A non-porous surface blocks moisture intrusion and cuts down on crevice corrosion and pitting.
The material also doesn’t support mold, mildew, and fungus growth, which is beneficial when manufacturing products with elevated sanitary or purity requirements. Applying simple antibacterial cleaner to the surface of stainless steel eliminates harmful bacteria and viruses.
