Stainless Steel Casting Mixer Blade
When many customers visit our sample room, they often think that the K-shaped stainless steel casting pictured above is the emblem of a large car, but in fact, it is the flat mixer blade, the core part in a commercial food mixer.
The stand mixer is a common kitchen equipment used in almost every household in the western developed world for making cakes, cookies, pastries, frosting, etc.. It works through a gear-driven mechanism that rotates a set of “mixers” in a bowl containing food or liquid, preparing the food or liquid by mixing them.
The flat mixer blade is the key accessory in a stand mixer and is used to mix any mixture with a normal to heavy consistency. For cooking purposes, the flat mixer blade are designed and manufactured in stainless steel for excellent corrosion resistance. The stainless steel precision cast machined flat mixer blade can have good dimensional accuracy and a smooth surface for a wide range of foods.
Stainless Steel Food Grade Material to Produce Mixer Blade
Stainless steel is used in the production of flat mixing heads for stand mixers because it is one of the most durable, versatile and worry-free metals available.
The chromium content of stainless steel is around 10-11%. When stainless steel mixing heads are exposed to air, the chromium in stainless steel forms a chromium oxide film on the surface of the mixing head. This film is passive and non-toxic, and most importantly, it prevents rusting by keeping the stainless steel product isolated from air and moisture. Even if the flat mixing head is scratched, the chromium oxide will re-form seamlessly.
This property eliminates the need to worry about it rusting. It is also non-reactive, unlike aluminum and iron, so we can use it to mix acidic foods.
There are several advantages to producing cast stainless steel flat stirring heads in a stainless steel precision casting process. For example, it provides reliable process control and repeatability that remains constant from casting to casting. Injection wax molds are less costly than other casting molds. Good surface quality, as well as having accurate dimensions.
