Food Machinery Grease is a premium, quality grease suitable for use in processing food and food support products, such as packages, cartons etc. where incidental contact with the lubricants may occur in the process. It is made with a USP white mineral oil and a special aluminium complex thickener. It contains additives to provide protection against rust and to resist oxidation. It also protects during periods of machine idleness. This grease resists water washout and provides a seal against the entrance of water, steam, fruit and vegetable juices to the bearing and has high stability against chemical changes. It is pure white, odourless and tasteless.
- Appearance Pure White, odourless, tasteless
- Worked Penetration 280 mm ASTM D217
- Oil Viscosity 220 cSt@40oC Typical
- Timken OK Load 40 ASTM D2509
- 4 Ball Weld Test 480 kg ASTM D2596
Food Machinery Grease is used in gearboxes, plain and anti-friction bearings in mobile machinery where the grease needs to flow to the point of application. It is also used in gearboxes where sealing is poor or where seals are worn and gear oils cannot be retained. The grease has excellent lubrication qualities and is ideal for pumping or for use in once through centralised automatic or semi automatic lubrication systems. As it is a multipurpose product, it helps simplify lubrication maintenance and aids in reducing inventories.
The recommended temperature range is from -30 oC to 160oC, however
Food Machinery Grease may be used at higher temperatures with the lubrication frequency increased accordingly.
