SKF Food Grade Lubricants enhance safety and reliability

08 December 2014

SKF has launched a range of Food Grade Lubricants that may increase reliability and safety of applications in the food and beverage industry. The specially developed products are NSF/H1, Kosher and Halal approved.

The food industry requires lubricants that not only offer standard lubricating properties to resist wear, friction, corrosion and oxidation but are also food grade, internationally approved and offer the ability to perform under the stringent conditions of the manufacturing environments.
SKF’s expanded range of Food Grade Lubricants has been specially developed to perform reliably in the typical application conditions of the food and beverage industry and meet the needs of producers to provide safe products.
“Good lubrication management practices are vital for our Food and Beverage customers,” says Jean Christophe Brossard, Global Manager, Food & Beverage Segment, SKF. “Lubrication influences efficiency of assets and energy consumption whilst inappropriate practices can impact food safety. Launching these lubricants is strengthening SKF's ability to support customers with food grade lubricants plant wide, in line with HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) processes. Combined with our lubrication systems, re-lubrication free solutions and lubrication management knowledge, this gives our customers many options for optimising lubrication management on site.”
SKFs expanded range includes: LGFP 2 General purpose grease, LGFD 2 High load grease, LGFS 00 General purpose grease, LGFT 2 High temperature grease, LGFC 1 Low temperature grease, LFFM 80 High moisture chain oil, LHFP 150 General purpose chain oil, LFFT 220 High temperature chain oil, LDTS 1 Dry film lubricant, LFFH 46 Hydraulic oil, LFFH 68 Hydraulic oil, LFFG 220 Gear oil and LFFG 320 Gear oil.
