Daemar Inc., the distributor of essential components for manufacturing and MRO applications, can offer a wide range of products for the food and beverage processing industry. The company is known for providing high-quality solutions for sealing, sliding, retaining, alignment and protection. To meet the needs of food processing applications, these products are made from FDA grade materials, provide excellent seals and can protect components during equipment washdown.
Products for food processing include:
- Shaft seals are available, such as oil seals, hydraulic seals, V-rings, end covers and more. These seals are perfect for the food processing industry because they will reliably seal in lubricants and keep out dust and debris. They include specialty types such as Protech WD bearing isolators, which can protect bearings from the frequent washdowns typical of food and beverage applications.
- Bushings from Daemar include models with no moving parts and self-lubrication, making them an appropriate choice for the food industry. They include dryslide, fiber-lube, solid metal and powdered metal bushings. They offer a low friction surface that requires little to no maintenance.
- Retaining rings are stocked in many materials such as stainless steel, which is often specified in clean fluid environments. Other options for materials include zinc, copper and carbon steel. They are available in many types, such as internal or external; inch or metric sizes; and spiral rings, tapered section or constant section.
- Braided packing, also referred to as compression packing, is commonly utilized for stuffing boxes for pumps to seal fluids. It is available in FDA grade material such as PTFE filaments with a break-in lubricant. Daemar stocks the most popular styles and sizes.
