All contact parts in Caleva machines are manufactured from 316 grade stainless steel which is an austenitic stainless alloy that is highly durable and resistant to cracking, pitting and corrosion when exposed to pharmaceutical materials and chemicals. It is also easy to clean and sanitise. This means that Caleva machines are suitable for the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries.

Any contact parts which are made from plastic components are manufactured from FDA approved plastics.
