At half the price, Boston Gear’s Stainless Bost-Kleen washdown protection treatment for its speed reducers in aggressive washdown applications is a good alternative to stainless steel. The treatment prevents wear and cracking caused by caustic washdown chemicals and high-pressure washdowns, as well as scratches that may occur from contact during installation and operation. Ensuring the product maintains a durable, smooth finish that prevents rust and reduces the possibility of unwanted bacteria growth, it uses a bisphenol-F-type epoxy, which offers a high level of chemical, pressure and thermal resistance.
