This study demonstrates the use of a previously deve­ loped testing method by the authors for assessing the cleanability of stainless steel surfaces. The effect of surface roughness and various parame­ ters on cleaning of protein based soils was investiga­ ted, namely soaking time, temperature, and the use of an alkaline detergent. For this reason, stainless steel surfaces of various alloys and different degree of sur­ face roughness were soiled under defined conditions, fixed to a test stand…

Assessing the cleanability of stainless steel surfaces - development of a testing method for starch and protein based soils.

To measure the cleanability of stainless steel surfaces under standardized conditions, a test stand was set up. Three stainless steel plates (size 200 x 100 mm) can be fixed to the test stand and
