Choosing the right shovel can make all the difference. Whether you simply require FDA/HAACP color-coding compliance or also certain features like lightweight, non-sparking, reinforced, metal detectable or ergonomic design, we carry a variety of shovel styles and sizes to meet your needs. And, all of our shovels are approved for direct food contact.
PLASTIC. Our durable plastic shovels are made from FDA-compliant polypropylene and available in many colors for HAACP programs. Hygienically designed for easy cleaning, they are rigid yet lightweight, non-sparking and chemical and corrosion resistant. These shovels can be used in general food handling applications such as dairy, seafood, poultry and meat. They are also appropriate for chemical and industrial applications. They are true industry standards.
METAL DETECTABLE. Our metal detectable shovels are also molded from FDA-compliant polypropylene plastic. The semi-ferrous additive in these shovels allows for use in conjunction with metal detectable systems. Metal detectable plastic is a less costly alternative to stainless steel, and will reduce fatigue for the user. Ideal for facilities that want the lightweight and durable features of plastic, while meeting metal detectable requirements. These shovels are popular for meat, dairy, seafood, and poultry processing, as well as commercial fishing and other food handling applications.
STAINLESS STEEL. Our heavy duty, Type 304 stainless steel shovels are Certified NSF/ANSI Standard 2 - Food Equipment. These shovels are fully welded to ensure that there are no spaces where any particles can gather. Plus, they are completely seamless with large radiuses that insure easy cleaning. An electropolished finish enhances corrosion resistance, improves surface finish and also provides ease of cleaning. These shovels are important workhorses for any facility. Ideal for use with meat, dairy, seafood, poultry, commercial fishing, material handling, agriculture, chemical and industrial applications.
