Applications in Food and Beverage Processing & Packaging

Food processing and packaging equipment utilizes more Timco Technical Plastic components than any other type of equipment. The requirements are often severe including high temperature, high speed, and long duty cycles. When food is being prepared or packaged, surfaces must be easy to clean or sterilize and chemical resistance is key. Many applications require materials that are FDA compliant and suitable for use in direct food contact. Additionally, lubrication is often impossible on food processing and packaging equipment so self lubricating materials are a must. Long part life and minimal wear on expensive mating parts are also factors to consider when selecting your component material.  We are pleased to offer a broad range of material options from UHMW-PE to PEEK for the food processing and packaging industries.
