Food-Safe Manufacturing Made Possible by Timken

Safe, efficient manufacturing. It’s vital to the health of the products you produce – and the viability of your business. And while your operations must meet demanding safety regulations, they also need to maintain profitable uptime. You need equipment tough enough to handle chemical washdowns, high temperatures, fast throughput and other challenges they endure day in and day out.

Improve Food Safety

Our products developed for Food & Beverage processing machinery are compliant with USDA requirements.

Reduce Maintenance

Premium products tout longer operating lives, even in demanding environments.

Decrease Unplanned Downtime

Long-lasting products and predictive maintenance help you avoid sudden, expensive shutdowns. Avoid costly change-outs with products designed to handle corrosion, thermal expansion and harsh chemicals.

Increase Overall Productivity

Our products are designed for efficiency. You can maintain optimum uptime despite chemical washdowns, high temperatures and fast throughput.
