The Right Food Grade Lubricant – It Makes a Difference

The Right Food Grade Lubricant – It Makes a Difference

Effective lubrication of food processing equipment is becoming increasingly important. Both food processing facilities and food grade lubricant manufacturers play a role in the overall safe production of consumer goods.

Lubricant manufacturers are challenged to produce food grade lubricants that can also stand up to tough operating conditions This means achieving the performance level of a conventional lubricant, while manufacturing in a food safe environment with products that are formulated with highly pure white mineral oils and that are registered H1 for incidental contact.

And on the other end, manufacturing operations can be expected to run continuously and the equipment may have to endure conditions such as extreme temperature swings and contamination-prone environments. Finding a lubricant that meets stringent food safety standards, provides lubrication even under tough conditions, helps reduce downtime and ultimately saves time and money can be a challenging task for even the most experienced plant manager.

Ever-evolving Safety Requirements

While changes and updates in legislation work to benefit the industry, they can present challenges. Regulatory requirements are often country/region specific with respect to where and when food grade lubricants are necessary. Manufacturers need to meet regulations on a global scale, and ensure they are aware of both existing and developing regulations. Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc. is always working to ensure its products meet the regulatory needs of all its customers worldwide.

Beyond Food Safety

Food grade lubricants are designed to protect your machines and ensure that even if there is incidental lubricant contact during food production, the risk of financial loss due to product waste or recall is reduced.

However, the demands of today’s food manufacturers extend beyond food safety. For many years, plant operators debated the quality and performance of food grade lubricants, not wanting to risk equipment performance or reliability. Petro-Canada Lubricants PURITY™ FG products challenge this perception. Through advanced technology, and expert research and development, PURITY FG products are specially formulated to be as effective as their non-food grade counterparts and deliver the highest performance from your equipment. With exceptionally long life and anti-wear technology, facilities can enjoy increased productivity, decreased downtime and ample value-based savings from the advanced protection and performance that quality food grade lubricants provide.

A Team of Your Own

Petro-Canada develops products that are made to meet your demands. No matter the challenge, PURITY FG food grade lubricants handle the intense environmental conditions that processing operations can breed. Petro-Canada’s experienced technical service team works directly with you to create a personalized solution that meets your operating needs.

Take Advantage of the Petro-Canada Complete Solution

Food manufacturers are starting to take food safety to new levels. When manufacturers are able to employ H1-registered food grade lubricants across their full facilities, it not only helps them meet industry regulations and demands, but also delivers peace of mind in knowing that food products are safer in the event of incidental contact with the lubricant. There is significant value in working with suppliers who can provide complete protection across the board, from hydraulics to compressors, greases and gears. Petro-Canada Lubricants is committed to going beyond today’s standards by offering a complete solution for food manufacturers, providing the benefits they deserve and the food safety they demand.
