Food grade grease tackles the issue of blocked pipework

15 April 2019

ROCOL has launched a new high-performance food grade grease designed to overcome the maintenance challenges associated with pipework blockages. 

The formulation of the new FOODLUBE Hi-Load SF grease has been developed to prevent blocked pipework which can result in the need for manual interventions on automatic lubrication systems and bearing replacement or repair. 

Pipework blockages are often the result of solids conglomerating in the grease, which ultimately prevent it from flowing through the pipe. The causes include pipework that is too narrow; a pipe run that is too long for the size, speed, temperature and bearing load being fed from the grease reservoir; using grease that has passed its ‘best before’ date; or chemical reactions in the grease causing it to solidify.   

FOODLUBE Hi-Load SF fluid grease is a semi-fluid extreme pressure (EP) grease for use on highly loaded bearings in automatic lubrication systems. Its formulation means it will not separate, even when used in small bore scenarios or left for a long period of time in a container or reservoir. 

The grease is NSF H1 registered, which makes it suitable for incidental food contact; ISO21469 registered, which means it has been manufactured in accordance with good manufacturing practices. It is also Halal and Kosher certified.
