sideflon3Sanitary Design and Construction of Food Equipment - http://www.ufl.edu/
Ronald H. Schmidt and Daniel J. Erickson
To ensure safe food and adequate sanitation programs, the equipment used for processing and handling food products must be designed, fabricated, constructed, and installed according to sound sanitary design principles. This ensures the equipment can be adequately cleaned and sanitized, and that surfaces are resistant to daily exposure to corrosive food products and cleaning/sanitizing chemicals. Equipment that does not meet basic sanitary design principles, or is installed or used improperly cannot be adequately cleaned and sanitized.

In terms of sanitary design, all food contact surfaces should be :
•    smooth;
•    impervious;
•    free of cracks and crevices;
•    nonporous;
•    nonabsorbent;
•    non-contaminating;
•    nonreactive;
•    corrosion resistant;
•    durable and maintenance free;
•    non-toxic; and cleanable.
•
