High production temperatures in the food industry, for example in ovens, proofing cabinets, conveyors or motors, put considerable strain on the bearings. Klüber Lubrication has now succeeded in developing a new high-temperature grease for a wide range of applications in the food industry, which is able to realise its full potential at permanent temperatures of up to 160 degrees Celsius. This was made possible by using an innovative, FDA-approved polyurea thickener developed by Klüber Lubrication. The new high-temperature bearing grease Klüberfood NH1 74-401 is NSF H1-registered and certified according to ISO 21469.

“In the lubrication of bearings that are operated at high temperatures, manufacturers often have been obliged to lower expectations with regard to food safety and resort to industrial greases,” says Paolo Spolaore, Global Market Manager Food Industry at Klüber Lubrication. “Since our new high-temperature grease is designed for temperature peaks up to 180 degrees Celsius, it is the perfect solution not only for the lubrication of bearings in the baking industry, but also for other food industry segments. In addition, the number of necessary lubricants can be reduced, minimising the risk of mix-up.”

In Klüberfood NH1 74-401, the versatility of the innovative polyurea thickener was combined with the performance and high load carrying capacity of a synthetic base oil. As a result, extended lubrication intervals and maintenance intervals can be achieved at medium and high temperatures, while lower quantities of lubricant are needed in the production process. Klüberfood NH1 74-401 is suitable for manual application as well as for use in central lubrication systems.

Klüber Lubrication is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of speciality lubricants, offering high-end tribological solutions to virtually all industries and markets worldwide. Most products are developed and made to specific customer requirements. For further information, please click http://www.klueber.com.
