Processing Solutions for Seafood Machinery

PMC is a leader in wear part applications providing the seafood industry materials that do not rust, do not require lubrication and have high wear resistance and a low specific gravity.

From sea salts that corrode, to wash down chemicals in the processing centers, PMC’s acetal, UHMW and other high-performance plastic parts for the seafood processing industry reduce costs with longer life, less lubrication and less wear & tear on mating components.

UHMW and Nylon Plastics for Food Processing ApplicationsAs there is generally no change in the design, between plastic and metal, of power transmission parts, most metal power transmission parts in seafood processing equipment can be directly swapped for a plastic counterpart, generally nylon or UHMW.

The seafood processing industry requires additional consideration for parts that may be exposed to moisture, sea salts (salt water), wash-down chemicals, and other heavy water contaminants. Customers have used PMC replacement parts in a variety of OEM fish and seafood processing equipment.

We have a wide selection of replacement parts including acetal, nylon and UHMW Bearings & Inserts, Bushings & Washers, Collars, Gears & Gear Racks, Chain Guides, Guide Rails, Outrigger Pads, Pulleys, Roller Chains, Sprockets, Tracks, and Wear Strips & Parts.
