- Aluminium checker plates are used, but are often excluded in food and pharmaceutical applications.
- Conventional stainless steel 304 checker plates are the cheapest, but are difficult to clean because of their high roughness value and diamond pattern. They are also available in stainless steel 316, but are a lot less common and quite expensive.
- Stainless steel dimple plates/drip plates are significantly more expensive, but much easier to clean.
- Stainless steel pressed plates are easier to clean than the traditional checker plates, but are also quite rough and have the disadvantage that they are only available in a very thin sheet and therefore lack resilience.
In consultation with you, we look at the alternatives and we make the best choice.
