Food & Dairy Bearings and Bushings:
Bearings and bushings can be found in almost every step in food or dairy processing industries. Polymers are a popular choice for bearings and bushings in the food and dairy industry, both at the design stage and when retrofitting. Because they are greaseless, the can provide a more sanitary environment for food processing. They dont require the maintenance that metal bearings and bushings require, thus reducing downtime for maintenance. Their durability results in longer mean times to failure. They are usually much more resistant to corrosion and much less chemically reactive than metal bearings and bushings. They also weight much less than equivalent metal bearings and bushings.
