slinger-sealRegular visitors to AST’s Bearing Blog will have read our recent series on the bearing design considerations for use in the food and beverage industry. This week, we’re compiling all of the entries into a single post in case you missed anything.

Below is a full recount of the five-part guide:

  • The brief introduction to the series details the segments of the food processing industry that the rest of the entries pertain to. To read part I, click here.
  • Part II of the series provides an introduction to the regulatory environment in the food processing industry. To read part II, click here.
  • In part III, we begin getting into the nitty-gritty of it all, and look at specific lubrication choices for bearing life and performance. To read part III, click here.
  • Part IV breaks down bearing materials, and how these choices can have very different pros and cons for specific applications. To read part IV, click here.
  • Finally, in part V we conclude the series by discussing the importance of choosing correct shielding for your bearings. To read part V, click here.

We hope that you found this series educational! You can read an abridged version of all parts in an article that our friends at Food Manufacturing were kind enough to publish, click here to visit their site.

And as always, feel free to contact our bearing experts with any questions about the food processing industry, or any market.
