Food manufacturing equipment parts
Food equipment manufacturers rely on Lavelle to provide them with rubber parts for their ice machines, ice cream machines, blenders, mixers and other equipment.
With over 2,000 active formulations in stock, Lavelle offers an extensive range of materials for rubber and plastic molding designs. Many of the materials we specialize in include FDA-approved rubber polymers that are approved for use with food manufacturing applications, as described in CFR Title 21, Part 177.2600. These include natural rubber (NR) and various synthetics such as styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), butyl, neoprene, EPDM, nitrile, silicone, FKM (Viton) and urethane.
We also offer materials that meet the specifications established by NSF/ANSI 61 for potable water applications. Not only are these materials ideal for food manufacturing equipment, but many of them, such as our Chlorazone® family of elastomeric formulations, are designed to prevent premature product degradation by resisting harmful chemicals found in water, like chlorine or chemicals used for machine cleaning operations.
