Dodge® Food Safe ball bearings win gold award in Plant Engineering’s 2019 Product of the Year program

 

Proud to announce that Dodge Food Safe ball bearings have earned the gold award in the Electric Motors & Drives category in Plant Engineering magazine’s 2019 Product of the Year program.

The annual reader-choice program provides Plant Engineering’s audience with information about the top new products in their fields. The Product of the Year Award was established to honor the most innovative and useful products introduced to the industrial plant engineering market. Dodge Food Safe ball bearings were selected as a finalist and then turned over to readers to determine the best of the best.

“We are extremely pleased to be recognized by Plant Engineering and their readers.” said David Kaunitz, Dodge Mounted ball bearing Product Manager at ABB. “Food Safe bearings solve the two most common reliability problems in the food industry – grease washout and corrosion.”

Food Safe bearings are the only IP69 bearings that are backed with a one-year warranty against failure due to water ingress ideal for clean in place applications. Food Safe bearings help prevent recalls and violations with a unique plated stainless steel insert design, which features the revolutionary Dodge Kleentec top coat which protects against corrosion from caustic cleaners. Sealed and lubed for life with superior lubrication protection prevents grease washout minimizing the cost and complexity of maintenance.
