    Composite Bearings for Food Safety & Packaging Speed

Safe handling and contamination control are driving forces in the food equipment industry, as consumers demand better accountability and mandates become more stringent.  Yet manufacturers also need to optimize operations and move perishables quickly from processing to packaging to purchase.  How can equipment manufacturers reduce the risk of food contamination while also improving production output?

TriStar’s self-lubricating composite and polymer bearings deliver for the food industry.

Engineered bearings excel in demanding food applications where sanitation and speed matter;  such as the mixers and proof carts of commercial bakeries; on the drills and ovens in poultry plants; and the fillers and conveyors of beverage bottlers.  As the exclusive supplier of Rulon® materials, we have a full-inventory of food-grade Rulon bearings in-stock — or available for custom fabrication to meet your exact requirements.
