Chain oil for travelling ovens

22 August 2016

FUCHS recently launched Cassida chain oil HTE, a synthetic, high temperature chain lubricant for food and beverage processing equipment and which is suitable for use on the chains of travelling ovens found in food environments such as bakeries. 

The product, which has been formulated to lubricate drive and transport chains at elevated temperatures, is based on a blend of synthetic fluids and selected additives chosen for their ability to meet the stringent requirements of the food and beverage industry. It is ISO 21469 certified and registered by NSF (Class H1) for use where there is potential for incidental food contact.

Commenting on the launch, Roger Locke, business development manager for FUCHS Cassida, said: “The lubricant has exceptional thermal stability up to 240°C and low evaporation loss. It also has excellent corrosion resistance and can be easily applied by brush, automatic lubrication systems or drip feed lubricator.”

The oil is yellowish in colour, has a neutral odour and taste and is solvent-free to provide greater safety.
