Surface conditions accounting for minimum bacterial adhesion (Bacillus spores)

Two Bacillus strains were used to test adhesion and ease of removal with the new surfaces. Data are available for each material and a comparison was done. The soiling was obtained in realistic conditions (milk at 60°C) and cleaning in industrial CIP conditions (NaOH 0.5% at 60°C).
