—Food processing plant manager
In our 40 plus years in business as a commercial & industrial painting contractor, we have pretty much come across all levels of corrosion in food processing plants. From deteriorating floors, to equipment caked with ingredients used in your processing methods, Painters USA has had the opportunity to help some of the world’s largest food processors solve their corrosion problems safely, efficiently, & effectively. Believe it or not, the ceilings in these type of plants are the most susceptible to corrosion in the form of rust due to the steam being utilized in most food processing systems. As the steam rises and settles in the beams of your ceiling, it starts working on breaking down the existing coating (assuming there is one). Once the moisture penetrates the coating, the corrosion process has begun – and it will continue to spread like a virus unless it is dealt with in an effective manner.
Ceiling corrosion and rusting can lead to a number of problems for food processing facilities, including health and safety hazards as well as legal ramifications. During regular audits by the USDA and FDA, if they find peeling or flaking paint on ceilings, they may shut down the facility and/or charge it with a serious fine. This is because falling paint chips and other debris may fall into the food processing machinery below, causing major food safety issues.
Painters USA’s proven corrosion/rust control processes for ceilings in wet, humid environments will give you a long-lasting solution to a recurring problem that could possibly prevent you from passing those stringent USDA & FDA inspections. All of our coating systems carry up to a 10-year warranty against failure. As you well know, you can’t have flaking & peeling paint chips contaminating your equipment and the food you are processing!
Proper preparation of the substrate is the single most important component of any painting or flooring project, and the preparation of ceilings is no exception. This preparation allows the rust encapsulating primers to adhere accurately to the surface & stop rust in its tracks. And for another layer of protection, Painters USA typically applies a Dry-fall top coat that actually turns to dust before reaching the equipment & floor below. This makes for a fast & easy clean up without unsightly drips.
Painters USA can tackle your large ceiling painting project during one of your planned shut down periods, as well as a myriad of other maintenance tasks to keep your facility up to FDA & USDA standards.
