Food machinery lubricant

Monday, 31 August, 2009 | Supplied by: Lubrication Engineers Pty Ltd

Food and beverage manufacturers need machinery lubricants to be clean, translucent and approved for incidental food contact, as well as non-tacky for frequent washdown of equipment. Lubrication Engineers’ Sheerplex food grade lubricant is a multipurpose grease that meets all of these needs.

Sheerplex lubricant is NSF H1 registered, Kosher Pareve certified and cleared for use in USDA-inspected facilities. It is an aluminium complex, NLGI No. 2 grease manufactured with white mineral oils, performance additives and organo-metallic thickeners that are approved for incidental food contact. Its smooth, non-tacky texture ensures a clean and easy process for the frequent washdown of food equipment and provides for good pumpability in centralised lube systems.

The food grade lubricant doesn’t contain any pigmentation, so it appears nearly transparent in use. In addition, Sheerplex features anti-wear properties and its corrosion inhibitors give it a high rating on bearing corrosion tests, providing rust protection for equipment that experiences high levels of water contamination.

The lubricant also performs well under mild acid or alkali conditions.

A wide operating temperature range of -28 to 400 °C means that Sheerplex has low-temperature mobility for use in the refrigerated areas of food plants as well as high oxidation resistance at the elevated temperatures used in food processing.

The lubricant is odour neutral and non pigmented.
