Food and Agriculture Industry

Agricultural machinery requires better seals for contaminated conditions, provisions for misalignment, and economical mountings for shafts and housings. MBP bearings offers bearings for disc harrows, planters, mowers, rakes, all types of balers, tillage, seeding and forage harvester equipment, combines, cotton pickers/stripers, and other agricultural equipment like silo unloaders and grain elevators.

We also offer a complete line of insert ball bearings, shaft mounted with either tapered adapters or locking collar or set screws. Our proven seal designs include low torque shields to heavy-duty triple lip seals. Disc harrow bearings are also available with either round, square, or hexagonal bores. All bearings are available with or without re-lubrication holes.

MBP bearings also have to comply with the food industry’s rigorous hygiene standards and our stainless steel ball bearings can be supplied with non-toxic lubricants approved to NSF (formerly USDA) H1 or H2 standards. We can also offer bearings with a choice of food grade lubricants to withstand the ingress of water or cleaning chemicals as well as coping with regular steam cleaning.  

Our food grade bearings are supplied with metal shields or rubber seals. For higher temperature applications, Viton seals are available for many sizes along with food approved high temperature grease. Our stainless steel bearings can be relubricated to withstand up to 300 C for high temperature applications such as bakery equipment.
