Quality Stainless Steel Connectors Deliver Increased Productivity, Improved Safety and Reduced Contamination

Stainless steel electrical connectors are probably not something you give much thought. After all, they’re just small pieces of very large systems. In most industries, they’re commodity components that don’t get much attention. Until they fail.

Corrosion, extreme temperatures, chemical seepage and electrical shorts are just the beginning of potential disaster for the paper & pulp or water & wastewater treatment industries. Production downtime, safety issues and contamination problems result when just one connector goes bad.

Using the right stainless steel connector for the job is critical.

Stainless Steel Electrical Connectors - Remke BlogThe Right Stainless Steel Connectors Make All the Difference

Starting with the right stainless steel connector makes all the difference. The right ones deliver:

  • Less engineering problems and workarounds
  • Fewer technical issues
  • Lower lifetime installed costs
  • Less production downtime

Stainless Steel Connectors for Paper and Pulp Industry

Stainless steel electrical connectors are crucial components in any large system, but especially for the pulp and paper industry.

  • Dry electrical boxes are housed near treatment systems that use chemicals and water and must withstand high humidity.
  • Submersed pumps require special power connectors in typically harsh environments that also use chemical solutions to treat pulp and make paper.

Type 304 Stainless Steel is typically adequate for most environments within a mill, although Type 316 is often preferred for its increased strength and long-term reliability.

The right stainless steel connectors help pulp and paper processors to:

  • Reduce corrosion in electrical systems
  • Operate efficiently in harsh environments
  • Provide safety in high temperatures
  • Protect equipment from liquids and chemicals
  • Reduce contamination from outside elements

Stainless Steel is the answer. Not only does it resist the damaging effects and lasts longer than other alloys, it is 100% Sustainable during its entire lifecycle.

Stainless Steel does not harm the people producing or handling it. Since it is naturally corrosive resistant because of inclusion of chromium, there are no harmful chemicals used to fabricate components and it does not give off harmful elements during use or recycling.

Stainless Steel does not harm the environment. It has a very minimal impact on water, air and carbon use, plus is recyclable at the end of its effective use.

Stainless Steel is profitable at every stage of its lifecycle. From fabricators who create the components to water treatment plants who experience a very low cost of installation and maintenance, to the people who recycle it at the end of its life, Stainless Steel is a profitable material to work with.
