Food equipment and drinking water equipment is subject to minimum protection and sanitation requirements for materials used in the construction of commercial food and drinking water equipment. Thordons ThorPlas-White grade was developed for food equipment and drinking water applications, and is a high performance bearing material designed to extend the wear life in pumps while also offering dry start up capabilities. ThorPlas-White is an ideal bushing material for slow moving applications where the material is designed to operate totally dry without the need for any expensive food grade lubricants. Our ThorPlas-White product is certified to NSF/ANSI 51 and NSF/ANSI 61 regulatory requirements, as well as WRAS material approval meeting product standards for the U.S. and Canada, as well as many other countries around the world.

  • Long bearing wear life
  • Good dry run capability
  • Low friction operation
  • High resistance to heat, corrosion and abrasion
  • Easy to install
