A laboratory is a facility that provides controlled conditions in which scientific or technological research experiments and measurements may be performed.
Laboratories often have contiguous spaces that include:
• Wet laboratories
• Computer laboratories
• Write up space
• Office areas
• Other spaces with varying degrees of chemicals use and hazard
Work spaces should be durable and designed and constructed in a way that provides for:
• Long-term use
• Easy to clean and repair
• Chemical resistant
• Smooth and easy to clean
Stainless steel is one of the most commonly used materials in laboratories for the following reasons:
• Ideal for sterile laboratory environment
• Provides superior heat and chemical resistance
• Sustainable and provides longevity
• Highly resistant to corrosive
• Provides non-porous surface for ease of cleaning
• Resistant to acids, heat solvent
• Sturdy and affordable
Laboratories that use stainless steel:
• Blood science laboratories
• Pathological science laboratories
• Nuclear imaging and related science
• Air and water pollution control
What is stainless steel?
It is essentially a low carbon steel which contains chromium at ten –Percent or more by weight. It is the addition of chromium that gives the Steel its unique stainless, corrosion and resisting properties.
There are over one hundred and fifty different grades of stainless steel.The following are the preferable grades used in the manufacturing process for laboratory equipment and tools:
304 advantages: diverse application, rust proof, high corrosion resistance, recyclable, antibacterial properties, does not stain and can be cleaned and reused many times, high heat resistance and once work-hardened, stainless steel 304 will keep its shape.
316 advantages: can withstand corrosive attach by sodium and calcium brines, hypo chloride solution and phosphorous acid.
Some laboratory stainless steel products are:
• Lab furniture
• Lab tables
Despite stainless steel’s innate strength and durability, it is important to be aware that there are certain fabrication methods and steel grades can make a difference in the life and effectiveness of stainless steel products.
When choosing products for a lab environment, consider the following:
• Always opt for customization. The supplier or manufacturer must me able to work with your preferable size and specific required capabilities.
• Quality material should be the only choice. Ensure your supplier or manufacturer uses industry or high standard materials.
Cleaning tips for laboratory equipment and utensils:
• Take care to use non-abrasive tools, soft cloths and plastic scouring pads will not harm the steels’ passive layer
• Stainless steel pads can be used but the scrubbing motion must be in the direction of the manufacturer’s polishing marks.
• Some stainless steels come with visible polishing lines or “grains” when visible lines are present, you should always scrub in a motion that is parallel to them. When the grain cannot be scene, it is suggested a soft cloth or scouring pad be used.
• Avoid cleaners containing quaternary salts as they also can attack stain steel.
• To avoid buildup of hard stubborn stains, stainless steel equipments and utensils should be cleaned frequently
• After wiping the equipments or utensils, allow to air dry as oxygen helps maintain the stainless steels’ passivity film.
