FDA-approved bearings for the food industry
In the food and beverage industry, uptime and reliability are everything. Production equipment requires food-grade certification, and any breakdown will cause costly production stops. The bearings used must be of the highest possible quality and must be able to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and humid and contaminated working conditions with the longest bearing life possible.
CeramicSpeed Corrotec ball bearings are FDA approved and suitable for use in the food industry. The bearings are manufactured using stainless steel rings with ceramic balls and lubricants approved for use in the food industry.
Are CeramicSpeed Bearings FDA approved?
Yes, CeramicSpeed Corrotec ball bearings are FDA approved and suitable for use in the food industry. The bearings are manufactured using stainless steel rings with ceramic balls and lubricants approved for use in the food industry.
Can our Corrotec series run submerged in corrosive agents?
Yes, our corrotec series is designed for bearings in the food and beverage industry where the bearings often are submerged in corrosive agents followed by high-pressure wash increasing the risk of corrosion of standard carbon steel bearings, leading to costly unplanned stops. CeramicSpeed bearings are fitted with premium-quality ceramic balls made of Grade 3 Silicon Nitride. These balls are 2.3 times harder than steel balls and extremely resistant to any corrosive media.
Labor and other costs associated with replacing worn-out bearings often exceed the price of the actual bearing several times over. Especially when considering the lost production due to the service or repair stop. Multiply these costs 4-8 times, and you can calculate the potential for optimizing your production by replacing traditional bearings with CeramicSpeed Hybrid Bearings.
The actual cost is a fraction of the gains that come from increasing service intervals.
Disassembly and reassembly of machines, run-in, recalibrations, and startup procedures are a part of every service stop and since the bearings sit at the center of motion in machines, they become the target of these stops. So, you have to imagine the possibilities for increasing the output of the systems by adding longer-lasting components at the key points of motion inside your machine.
