MCM 540 Stainless Steel OR Kick Bucket
Stainless Steel Intro
Stainless steel is a remarkable and versatile material that has found its way into virtually every aspect of our daily lives. One of the most widely recognized and utilized grades of stainless steel is Grade 304, celebrated for its exceptional corrosion resistance, durability, and an array of practical applications. It is commonly found used in healthcare medical equipment, shelving, storage components, kitchen and outdoor appliances, sinks, food processing equipment and too many more to name.
Grade 304 can withstand a wide range of temperatures, making it suitable for both cryogenic and high-temperature applications. It retains its mechanical properties at sub-zero temperatures and resists scaling and oxidation at elevated temperatures.
Stainless steel 304 is easy to clean and maintain, which is crucial in industries like food processing, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare. Its smooth, non-porous surface prevents the growth of bacteria, making it a hygienic choice for equipment and surfaces.
Stainless steel Grade 304 requires minimal maintenance to maintain its properties and appearance. Regular cleaning is typically sufficient to keep it in good condition.
Joining stainless steel components can be accomplished using various methods, including welding, riveting, screwing, and bolting. Welding is the strongest and longest lasting bonding procedure and that is why we chose to weld our joints. This insures the longest useable life of your product and to insure easy cleaning every weld is glove friendly.
Stainless steel products can vary in their magnetic properties. Some stainless steel types are magnetic, while others are not. It depends on the specific composition of the stainless steel used. It is for this reason ONLY components list as MRI Safe can be used in the MRI environment. The factory must test and assert that level of non-magnetic reactance before it is safe for that area.
Stainless steel is fully recyclable, making it an environmentally friendly material choice. Recycling stainless steel is cost-effective and helps reduce the demand for new raw materials.

Cleaning and Maintenance
The attractive and hygienic surface appearance of stainless steel products cannot be regarded as completely maintenance free. All grades and finishes of stainless steel may in fact stain, discolor or attain an adhering layer of grime in normal service. To achieve maximum corrosion resistance the surface of the stainless steel must be kept clean.
Stainless steel is easy to clean. Washing with soap or a mild detergent and warm water followed by a clean water rinse is usually quite adequate for most medical equipment. Use a soft brush or cloth to remove stubborn dirt or blood. Do not use abrasive clothes or pads that will alter the finish of the stainless steel. An enhanced appearance will be achieved if the cleaned surface is finally wiped dry. We do not recommend using a cart washer for stainless steel equipment unless it is specifically rated for using in a cart washer. This can damage wheel bearings, parts glued on may release due to heat and water may be retained on some pieces of equipment. This can void manufacturer’s warranty.
Most stainless steel equipment does not need to be sterilized as it is usually not in direct contact with surgical instruments. If stainless steel is required to be sterilized, please check with sterilization
equipment manufacturers for settings as equipment cycles vary.
After stainless steel has been cleaned, you will want to disinfect before use. This is best done with disposable wipes not containing chlorine bleach. If bleach wipes are used, you will need to do a final rinse with clean water to remove the bleach residue as it will cause the stainless steel to have a cloudy finish or white residue over time. We recommend using Super Sani-Cloth® Germicidal Disposable Wipes to disinfect stainless steel medical equipment.
