SKF is launching 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.
Jean Christophe Brossard, Global Manager, Food & Beverage Segment, SKF says: “Good lubrication management practices are vital for our Food and Beverage customers. 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.”
