Plain bearings for the food and beverage industryigus has released a short video that highlights the benefits of its FDA and EU 10/2011-approved bearings for use in the food and beverage industry. The policy for food hygiene is clearly defined by the standards of the US and European regulators. At igus, the ‘food grade’ products are produced in blue, and are therefore easy to identify.

In this video, we see the food-safe, physiologically harmless, (EU) No 10/2011 regulated and FDA-certified, igus plastic iglidur A160 parts. This enhanced portfolio of wear-resistant products from igus ensures the smooth running, precise and quick adjustment of machines in the food and beverage industry.

From specific bearing products to spare parts, the blue-sky range is particularly characterised by its long service life. Impervious to chemicals and other cleaning agents, all iglidur A160 parts have the usual advantages of iglidur materials being lubrication and maintenance free.
