Home Infrastructure Water & Waste WRAS approves Vesconite’s Hitemp 160

High-temperature-resistant bearing material Hitemp 160 has been certified for contact with water up to 65ºC (150ºF).

This is according to the maker, Vesconite Bearings, which informs that the bearing and wear material has been approved by the Water Regulations Approval Scheme (WRAS).

WRAS is an independent UK certification body for plumbing products and materials. It informed Vesconite that Hitemp 160 has passed the full test of effect on water quality.

The bearing material is advertised as being able to be used in the high temperature range up to 160 – 200ºC depending on the chemicals in the solution.

With the certification, the material is certified as safe for water intended for human consumption up until 65ºC.

“UK pump and potable water component manufacturers can confidently use the product within the given temperature parameters,” says Vesconite Bearings CEO Dr Jean-Patrick Leger.

The certification also provides comfort for the general safety of the bearing material where it is used outside of the UK, he notes.
