Solid Lubrication for Food Compatible Washdown Environments

Oct. 17, 2023
According to a reputable global supplier of bearings, the main causes of premature bearing failure include 36% due to poor lubrication, and 14% due to contamination.

Due to new advances in bearing technology and the introduction of solid lubrication can eliminate nearly 50% of the leading causes of bearing failure. Particularly harsh operating environments for bearings are found in the Food & Beverage industry inside processing machinery and equipment where frequent cleaning with harsh chemicals is required for proper sanitation. Guide bearings for these applications require specialized designs to be suitable for use and ultimately to meet their service life expectations.

This whitepaper discusses guide wheel bearing designs for food processing equipment.
