The most important thing for food processing is santitary, safety, reliable, efficient and smoothly. Bearings play a critical role in food processing, they have to meet the rigors and safety standards.
The material and grease of the bearing should all be food-grade. Bearing in food process will face high-temperature, high-press water, high-temperatire steam, so the bearing should be good wear and corrosion resistance, and its grease should be high-temperature version, and high resistance to water washout.
Commonly, bearing material is SAE 52100 chrome steel. While most food processing bearing should be using martensitic stainless steel, or AISI 440C stainless steel combinated with corrosion resistance and fatigue life. In food processing, bearings are continuously exposed to liquids and various types of particulate debris. Metal or rubber Sealed bearings are common option for food processing.
Stainless steel deep groove ball bearing, with food–grade grease pillow block housing and insert bearing and stainless steel pillow block housing and bearing, track rollers, slewing bearing, and other type of bearing are widely used in foor processing and foob packaging machine.
We stock and supply 440 grade stainless steel bearing, Food-grade grease bearing and high-temperature bearing for food industry. Our food industry bearings comply with the food industry’s rigorous hygiene standards and our stainless steel ball bearings, pillow block housing can be supplied with non-toxic lubricants approved to NSF (formerly USDA) H1 or H2 standards. We can also offer bearings with a choice of food grade lubricants to withstand the ingress of water or cleaning chemicals as well as coping with regular steam cleaning.
