Food recalls due to contaminants cost food and beverage companies millions each year and also cause reputational damage, potentially affecting future sales. Switching to high-quality food-grade oils in all machines that could come into contact with food or beverages could reduce the risk of product recalls.

Adhering to the international standards set out by NSF, a US-based company that developed a system to grade lubricants, could minimise the risk of product recalls caused by contamination from lubricants that are not food-grade. The NSF standards recognise the different uses for lubricants and split them into three categories. H1 is for lubricants that might come into incidental contact with food, H2 is for those that will not come into contact with food, while H3 is for edible oils used on grills, hooks, trolleys etc.

Industrial lubricant specialist NCH provides lubricants that are both effective and food-grade to international standards. The range of NCH products includes those for specific uses, such as the Threadeze Ultra, an anti-seize lubricant that can work at temperatures up to 1260°C, yet is safe to use where incidental food contact is likely. Another NCH product, Premalube, is a heavy-duty, high-temperature grease that is formulated to solve food processing equipment problems and meets international standards including AQIS, NZ MAF, FDA, USDA and NSF.

Businesses manufacturing food and beverages require food-safe lubricants that don’t wash away with water, melt away with heat, dissipate with pressure or degrade with dirt or dust particles. Unsuitable lubricants can cause contamination, wear and tear, and machinery breakdowns, which can negatively impact businesses. Using the right industrial lubricant can provide many advantages for food and beverage manufacturers.
