Have you obtained your free copies of our Food Processing and Food Packaging technical white papers? Here you’ll learn how food manufacturers are increasing production levels and improving safety ― simply by replacing traditional metal and bronze bearings with durable, value-driven composites and polymers.
Another unique food bearing challenge recently came through our custom fabrication shop when we developed Ultraflon components for a brand new French fry machine.
Our partner developed an all-new machine that converts granulated potatoes into crispy fries in just under a minute. The process involves rehydration, pressing, cutting and frying of the potato product to achieve the perfect product consistency. With special UL and NSF requirements in place, Ultraflon excelled as a structural and component bearing in this demanding, quick-fry application. Ultraflon offers superior wear and extrusion resistance, plus low friction to accommodate the machine’s unique design envelope.
