Tube Master Orbital Welder and Bead Blast Room
Over the past 35 years, Tri-Mach Group has positioned itself as an industry leader in food safety as a result of our innovative solutions and attention to quality. To continue our dedication to continuous improvement and to implement equipment that will enhance productivity and food safety, we are excited to announce the purchase of a brand-new Tube Master Orbital Welder and Bead Blast Room.
Our new orbital welder will bring enhanced digital technology to our welds including unparalleled accuracy, repeatability, and reliability. This machine will eliminate the need for periodic weld head calibration as the rotation speed remains accurate regardless of headwear, and heads can be interchanged in a timely manner. Our new processes will enhance productivity within our shop and guarantee excellent welding.
Next, our new bead blast room builds on our commitment to sanitation, creating clean, ready-to-use final products for our customers. This bead blast process ensures all surfaces will have a sanitary finish to mitigate the risk of contamination, which is essential within the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries.
The main benefits of bead blasting for stainless steel are:
• It provides a clean and consistent, streak-free finish, even on complex shaped fabrications.
• Ensures that the surfaces of the fabrication are free from lines, grooves, pits, or divots which could encourage the growth of microbiological organisms.
• It removes any dirt and debris created during machining and processing operations such as grinding, drilling, and milling.
• Removes any scale from the fabrication which has been deposited before or after any heat treatment processes, including welding.
The addition of these two machines will not only increase our productivity but also enhance our focus on sanitary solutions which will allow us to expand into new markets. If you want more information on how our new Tube Master Orbital Welder and Bead Blast Room can be used to increase sanitation and benefit your next project, contact our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edible and Topical CBD Products
Earlier this year, edible and topical cannabis products were available for sale to Canadians by licensed producers. The Canadian Cannabis market extends beyond recreational use into the use of cannabidiol (CBD) a component that doesn’t give a high and is believed to have benefits such as relaxation and anxiety and pain relief. With the legalization of cannabis, the food and beverage industry will become inundated with processors vying to expand their products into the up-and-coming cannabis industry.
CBD-infused products that are currently trending within the industry include beverages, baked goods, candy, pet food, as well as supplements, lotions, and soaps. The possibilities are endless, where CBD consumables are legal, as it can be added to various products that appeal to a large range of consumers. A recent Deloitte report suggests that edibles and alternatives will be worth $2.7 billion a year in Canada, making up 60% of the legal cannabis market, this trend is showing no signs of slowing down.
Edible and topical cannabis regulations remain complicated in the U.S. as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) views CBD as a drug ingredient, not a food ingredient. While the Canadian cannabis industry has seen success, and the regulations in the U.S. remain ambiguous, it is clear that the future is bright for the CBD market and it has the potential to become a game-changer for food and beverage processors.
Within the Cannabis Industry, Tri-Mach Group offers various services including equipment installations, rigging, maintenance, and electrical services. The new laws will play a pivotal role in Canada’s cannabis sector, and we are excited to see the edible CBD paradigm shift.

Food Safety 101
Ensuring Food Safety During an Outbreak
In December 2019, the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) that began in Wuhan, China, spread rapidly across the world. The global pandemic has cities under strict lockdowns, declaring state of emergencies, non-essential services are closing their doors indefinitely and the virus is showing no signs of slowing down. As grocery stores are seeing an influx of customers and empty shelves to show for it, consumers are curious about the integrity of their food in times of a viral outbreak.
The COVID-19 outbreak shouldn’t have consumers worried about the safety of their food as it is not a foodborne gastrointestinal virus and there has been no evidence to date that the virus is foodborne or transmitted by food packaging. However, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention have reported that COVID-19 can live on cardboard for hours and on hard surfaces such as plastic for up to three days. It is imperative that food processors provide their employees with resources to ensure they are practicing proper hygiene and sanitization, so their customers can be reassured that the integrity of their products remains top of mind.
The food safety measures that are already in place to prevent foodborne illness such as frequent handwashing and cleaning of surfaces and utensils already reduce the transmission of any virus or bacteria particles through food. During times of an outbreak, these measures are heightened therefore the likelihood of COVID-19 being transmitted through food production is very low. Furthermore, food processors are encouraged to increase Employee Safety equipment within their facilities, such as PPE Barriers, and touch-free tools. Following protocols set by local and provincial health is a good way to ensure you are creating a safe environment for employees and consumers.
To give your customers peace of mind in times of uncertainty, ensure your facility is equipped with sanitary solutions. Tri-Mach Group’s sanitary equipment was created to address the gap between equipment design, food safety, and sanitization. We strive to provide world-class sanitary solutions to our customers so you too, can continue to focus on keeping food safe always and during times of an outbreak.
