Productivity demands in food and beverage processing applications have led to reduced maintenance schedules. Downtime for unplanned maintenance is costly and can lead to production schedules being missed.
This, combined with the increasing sanitation requirements, puts a huge demand on components and creates a challenge when selecting a suitable bearing. It can be difficult to find bearings that offer chemical resistance as well as cope with demanding temperature cycles. That’s where GGB engineered plastics bearings come in.
Maintenance-free, self-lubricating, engineered plastics bearings offer excellent chemical resistance and perform well under temperature cycling, while still providing excellent friction and wear resistance. Additionally, GGB solutions offer tolerance reduction and improved retention, making them the reliable choice for processing environments.
Made using a thermoplastic injection molding process, engineered plastics bearings can be produced in nearly unlimited dimensions and shapes to exacting specifications.
From modular filling systems to vane pumps to bottle washing machines, there’s almost no end to the applications for engineered plastics bearings in food and beverage processing.
