Food-contact approved linear guide systems

06 July 2018

igus has expanded its range of bearing liners for its drylin linear guide systems, specifically for use in the food and drinks industry. 

The iglidur A160 liner complies with the FDA specification for repeated contact with food and the EU 10/2011 Directive.

The company’s self-lubricating and corrosion resistant linear guide systems are typically used in beverage filling systems and in the bottle processing industry. The iglidur A160 material can be used in direct contact with food. It contains no ingredients that can cause harm if ingested and it will not deteriorate or change the composition of food. It is also coloured blue to allow for easy detection if any particles enter the production line.

The liner has a high and online-calculable service life for use on stainless steel shafts, even in wet areas. Integrated dirt channels in the liner’s design makes it impervious to contamination and makes it easy to clean and replace.
