20 Apr Food safe bearings save local snacks
A recent component overhaul for a national snack food brand saw BSC’s involvement in supplying premium NTN steel bearings. Ongoing issues with the company’s potato peeling machinery was causing accelerated wear and eventual equipment breakdown, resulting in costly downtime.
Motion Australia Sales Representative for the Food and Beverage sector, Fady Elchab, says that the NTN F-UC bearings proved an excellent replacement solution, extending the wear life and enduring compliance with food safety regulations.
