Food production is an often overlooked – but essential – component of our food chain. Reliable, efficient machinery plays a key role in the food processing industry. Ball bearings are essential to the performance of this equipment, which must be designed to withstand challenging operating environments while meeting stringent safety requirements.  

Designers and engineers are faced with important decisions when specifying bearings used in food processing machinery. Materials, lubrication, and shielding / sealing options must be properly selected to ensure the optimal performance of the equipment. 

In a recent article for Power Transmission Engineering, AST Bearings explores critical bearing design elements for food processing machinery. Topics include regulatory compliance, materials for bearing components, seal construction, and lubricant selection.
