Food grade lubricants

Health and safety are priorities for food and drink manufacturers. When it comes to production equipment, lubrication keeps the business of feeding the nation on track.

Food grade lubricants must provide protection against wear, friction, corrosion and oxidation, dissipate heat and transfer power, be compatible with rubber and other sealing materials, as well as provide a sealing effect in some cases.

In addition, they must resist degradation from food products, chemicals and water/steam, must exhibit a neutral behaviour toward plastics and elastomers, and have the ability to dissolve sugars. These oils must also comply with food safety regulations, as well as be physiologically inert, tasteless and odourless, and meet international standards.

NEVASTANE lubricating oils

Oils are recommended for any high-pressure hydraulic system and/or air-line lubricators in the food processing industries. The NEVASTANE AW formulation is based on white mineral oil and high-performance additives that provide excellent protection of equipment even at high temperatures. This oil is recommended for use where incidental contact with food may occur. Using maintenance lubricants which have been registered H1 with NSF minimises your critical control points as required by HACCP.

NEVASTANE SL can be used in the following applications: compressors, pneumatic and hydraulic oils. The NEVASTANE SL formulation is 100% synthetic and based on PAO. It provides superior protection and longer service life for lubricated equipment. This oil is recommended for use where incidental contact with food may occur.

NEVASTANE Chain Oil XT is a high-performance chain oil specially designed for the lubrication of any control, drive and transport chains subject to high temperatures and loads in the food industries. It has an operating temperature of up to 250ºC and is designed for very high load ratings. It has excellent protection against wear and leaves very low deposits. NEVASTANE Chain Oil XT is especially effective in bakeries (oven chains) and slaughterhouses (transport chains). This product can be used where conditions are severe; e.g. high loads, very high temperatures, humidity, dust/dirt.
