Food & Beverage Processing and Packing Equipment

The unique demands of food processing and packaging are met by a wide variety of Engineered Plastics. Enhanced performance, regulatory approval, and detectability make these materials ideal for a variety of applications.

Regulatory
Wear Life
Chemical Resistance
Dimensional Stability

Regulatory

Specific formulations of engineered plastics are FDA, USDA, 3-A Dairy, and NSF compliant, allowing their use in food contact areas.

Wear Life

The inherent performance characteristics of engineered plastics provide increased wear life compared to traditional metals. These materials also work well with soft metals like stainless steel and aluminum, eliminating galling and mating part wear.

Chemical Resistance

The broad chemical resistance of engineered plastics eliminates corrosion or attack when processing products like citrus, while also being unaffected by the harsh cleaners typical of Clean in Place.

Dimensional Stability

Low moisture absorption and thermal stability allow engineered plastics to be used in applications where high heat, high speeds, and tight tolerances are critical to the performance of the equipment.
