The poultry industry deals with a unique set of challenges. Because machines must be sprayed down constantly, bearings and chains are subject to high humidity and a lot of high-pressure water spray. Feathers and other matter frequently jam pickers and must be cleaned out by hand–a messy and time-consuming job.

Interflon makes several products that are ideal for saving time and money–and not just a little bit, either. Our clients routinely report savings tens of thousands of dollars per year after switching to our products. Reports come back to us that use words like “amazed” and “delighted”.
