That&#39;s because government agencies require frequent washdown of equipment that comes in direct or incidental contact with food products. These regulations are enacted not only to protect our food supply, but also to protect workers at the food processing plants.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/cylinders-actuators/all-stainless-air-cylinders-are-ideal-washdown-applications" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/cylinders-actuators/all-stainless-air-cylinders-are-ideal-washdown-applications#comments Food & Beverage Cylinders & Actuators Thu, 22 Jan 2015 22:25:00 +0000 30341 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com A True Steam Shovel http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/true-steam-shovel <div class="node-body blog-body"><p>I&#39;m a member of our local historical society, and I often look through old pics and negatives when I visit.
