New bearing material certified safe for drinking water use

Home Engineering Engineering & Allied Supplies New bearing material certified safe for drinking water use

A wear-resistant bearing material produced by Vesconite Bearings, Hitemp 150, has been certified for drinking water use by the Water Regulations Approval Scheme (WRAS).

WRAS is an independent UK certification body for plumbing products and materials. It informed Vesconite that Hitemp 150 “is suitable for contact with wholesome water for domestic purposes”.

Hitemp 150 components met the requirements of BS6920-1:2000 and/or 2014. These standards govern whether non-metallic products are suitable for contact with water intended for human consumption.

“UK manufacturers can hence confidently use the product,” said Vesconite Bearings CEO Dr Jean-Patrick Leger, adding that the certification also “provides comfort” for the general safety of the bearing material where it is used outside of the UK.
