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. 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.

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.

The demands of today’s food manufactures 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-CanadaLubricants 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 provide 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.

Expand Protection

Don’t just think about what you’re using; think about where you’re using it. It’s no longer as simple as applying lubricants to primary machinery. Operations need to make sure they’re protecting every nook and cranny of their facilities, down to the very last bolt. Among the more recent innovations in food grade lubricants is the development and utilization of sprays, which allow you to readily reach inaccessible spots and expand your plant protection.

Sprays offer a quick and more convenient way to spot-lubricate areas such as chains, rails, small bearings and gears. The unique technology of Petro-Canada’s PURITY FG Aerosol Sprays line-up allows the product to be sprayed even when the can is held upside down, delivering lubricant protection in any direction.

When dealing with food products and organic materials the risk of bacteria or micro-organism growth is possible. Food by-products and water contamination can build up in the lubricant creating a breeding ground for micro-organisms. In response to this reality, Petro-Canada’s expert research and development team has advanced lubricants to a level where they can even protect themselves. MICROL™ and MICROL™ MAX, was the first EPA registered antimicrobial preservative to protect the lubricant from deterioration, fouling and odors caused by micro-organisms.

A Team of Your Own

Petro-Canada goes beyond today’s standards by developing 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. In addition to complying with regulation standards and practices (i.e. programs like GFSI, HACCP, GMP etc.), Petro-Canada is finding that many of today’s food manufacturers are going beyond these standards, mandating that food grade lubricants be used in all equipment, including even forklifts in some instances. When manufacturers are able to employ H1 registered food grade lubricants across their full facilities, it not only helps them to meet industry demands, but also delivers peace of mind in knowing that 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.
