Carter can cure your pharmaceutical bearing headaches with world-class bearings and unmatched technical support.

The chemicals used in pharmaceutical manufacturing and the hygiene standards that apply create an environment that many standard bearing materials and lubricants cannot support. Added to this, pharmaceutical manufacturing processes often involve extensive washdown operations, sometimes using aggressive cleaning agents that can (at best) degrade bearing performance and (at worst) destroy the bearings. Carter have specialist materials, bearings and lubricant experts with products that can help design teams overcome the headaches involved in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products.

Carter specialist bearings for the pharmaceutical manufacturing sector contain inert ceramics, plastics or specialist alloys together with corrosion resistant metals and chemically bonded dry lubricants. Our bearings for the pharmaceutical industry provide proven solutions for machine designers who need to deliver smooth operation and long, trouble-free service lives even in aggressive washdown applications.


Carter has a selection of bearing types that have been specially developed and refined for use in chemical mixers, tablet packaging machines, ingredient agitators and many more bespoke machines designed for pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. Included in the Carter portfolio are full ceramic bearings as well as a wide choice of hybrid bearings and plastic bearings too. Our pharmaceutical bearing experts can advise on appropriate bearing selection at all stages of the machine design and manufacturing process.
