At Precision Ball, we offer stainless steel ball bearings that provide the durability and flexibility required for food-grade requirements in the agricultural and food processing industry. We offer many bearings that span across usage for different parts of the industry and different types of industries. Ball bearings can support moderate radial loads and moderate axial loads. They can operate at high speeds. Ball bearings with shields or seals for protection can be lubricated to last for the operating life.
Due to the nature of the agriculture industry, it’s not surprising that balls will come into contact with water, chemicals, and other substances. It is important to have a stainless steel ball that can withstand the demands of your manufacturing without failing and costing time and money for replacements.
Food Grade Bearings for Food Processing
We want to make sure your machine parts can withstand the extreme conditions and specific government requirements necessary for food production. Here we know that your bearings are susceptible to high-pressure washdowns, high humidity and must adhere to FDA restrictions & regulations. Food grade bearings and related products are used throughout the manufacturing, processing, and handling of edible products in addition to making end-products for commercial and consumer use. Our steel ball products have a high resistance to corrosion, are stable in high temperatures, highly resistant to chemicals, and more.
When you shop our steel balls, they are built to withstand the heavy load of grains during processing. If your operation includes pellet mills, hammer mills, roller mills, extruders or uses conveyors, we have everything you need to get your product safely and cost-efficiently to your customers. When you rely on your agricultural equipment as a crucial component such as your fans, blowers, and conveyors they can be subject to vibration, contamination, and heavy, uneven bearing loads. This equipment getting heavy use can cause issues that can take down subpar bearing components. With Precision Ball, you can trust in the quality of our ball bearings to handle heavy loads, resist contamination, and extend lubrication life.
A chicken plant or farm can become corrosive and harmful to materials from the chicken’s litter in itself. The material can become so toxic it can eat through almost anything and get into almost anything to cause corrosion. For this reason, Precision balls recommend our steel ball-bearing that can withstand not only the litter but water, corrosion, and time. In the end, the investment into a quality made steel ball-bearing can save your time and money with costly replacements. The food-safe ball bearing is also safe for the animals and your operation.
If you manufacture or farm produce, you know when it’s time to pick your fruits and vegetables. The last thing you want to have is your picking and sorting machinery to fail, causing you precious time. We know frequent washing down the equipment, debris along bearings and re-greasing can result in excess re-lubrication that
leads to premature bearing failures. A few corroded ball bearings can be costly if you have to repair and let your produce wilt away. Your conveyors must be kept in constant motion to avoid downtime and spoiled produce. We know at Precision Ball how important it is to get your whole crop, fresh, to your customers. With our ball bearings you can have the confidence to know your machinery has less of a chance of breaking down during a crucial window.
Overall, if you are in the agricultural and food processing industry you will want to shop our steel ball bearings that can withstand the harsh environment that farming and processing bring. A weather-resistant, water-resistant, corrosion-free, rust-free ball bearing from us can be your best choice.
