There are many challenges facing the Food and Beverage industry today with environmental concerns, increased costs and competitive pressures at every turn. And with harsh conditions to consider such as caustic high-pressure wash downs that create wet and extremely hot conditions, it is increasingly difficult to keep equipment uptime at a maximum. Demand within the industry to constantly produce product is a premium requirement for all food and beverage producers. For producers to be successful they must partner with manufacturers that specialize in product and solutions that consider OSHA, HACCP, FDA and USDA compliance requirements while still providing product that can withstand the harsh conditions.
The Food and Beverage industry requires a large variety of Thermoplastic and Stainless steel product to meet the demanding environment created. PTI offers stainless steel inserts in PBT thermoplastic, stainless steel or nickel plated housings – specifically designed for the food and beverage industry and all ready for wash-down conditions. All series are interchanged dimensionally with the conventional cast iron housed mounted units. The stainless steel insert bearings are available with eccentric locking collars (SHC) or with standard setscrew locking (SUC). Both types of stainless bearing inserts are pre-lubricated with Mobilegrease® FM222, a USDA H-1 Lube. PTI offers a wide variety of accessories such as caps and back covers in plastic, rubber and stainless steel as well as technical expertise to analyze your operating conditions and make improvement recommendations. PTI can withstand the harshest conditions to maximize your equipment life and production needs.
