Sanitary Pressure Vessels


Steelcraft Sanitary Pressure Vessels are designed and manufactured to meet the stringent requirements of USDA, FDA, and 3A standards. Each design undergoes careful review to ensure steps are taken to eliminate crevices and other difficult to clean areas. Most sanitary process tanks are polished #4 or #7 on the interior and #4 on the exterior. Steelcraft also follows a stringent inspection and test plan to ensure quality control of items by keeping documented records of welding, material certifications and non-destructive exam (NDE) records.
