Food grade lubricants, including greases and oils, are an important part of the maintenance regime for all areas where food and food packaging items are manufactured, prepared or processed.

Contamination from improper lubrication can cause physiological damage in humans and have a poor effect on the smell and taste of the food items.

Food grade grease applications

Food grade grease is used to ensure that machinery and parts stay running at optimum performance, prevent moving parts from seizing and eliminates unnecessary downtime caused by worn equipment. There are many uses for food grade grease, primarily in the following applications:

  • Food processing machinery such as packaging machines, bottling machines and cookers.
  • Food processing equipment parts such as conveyor parts, rollers and guide rails.
  • Working parts such as valves, hydraulics and chains, motors and gearboxes.
  • Cam and conveyor mechanisms.
