Food Lubricant Applications

Machinery used in the food and pharmaceutical industries requires the use of specialist lubricants. They must be non-toxic and satisfy the NSF regulations for non-food compounds used in food manufacturing plants. Our TRIBOFOOD range is NSF-H1 registered for use in food processing environments and is widely used in bakeries, food processing factories, food preparation and packing areas.

We also have oils and greases that are NSF-3H registered, for use as release or parting agents with potential direct food contact.

Extreme high or low temperatures or aggressive cleaning processes are often encountered in the food industry, all of which can adversely effect the life of the lubricant.

In bakery applications for example, the ovens can reach above 300°C. Conveying components, chains, bearings and other components operating in these conditions require specialist lubricants.

Lubricants used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products and pharmaceutical packaging must also be food approved.

IKV TRIBOFOOD GBX SHC Range are NSF H-1 registered, high performance synthetic oils with excellent anti-wear properties, high oxidation stability, a low freezing point, high shear resistance and high temperature stability. These oils are used for the lubrication of reducer wheels, worm bearings and chains. They are also suitable as machine circulation fluids.

IKV TRIBOFOOD GBX Range are NSF registered semi-synthetic oils. They have good resistance to high loads and are used widely as gear oils although they are also suitable for the lubrication of rolling bearings, plain bearings, slides and chains under high mechanical stress.

IKV TRIBOFOOD CHN Range are NSF registered synthetic oils for the lubrication of chains up to temperatures of 200-220°C. They offer good resistance to loads and owing to their excellent adhesion, they do not drip. These oils are suitable for the lubrication of all types of industrial transport chains, food industry chains and ovens, paint oven chains and drying tunnels.

IKV TRIBOFOOD HLQ Range are NSF H-1 registered oils with a low freezing point, high viscosity indices, good shear strength and anti-foaming properties. They also offer effective protection against corrosion and are widely used for lubricating bearings, slides and chains exposed to temperatures from -60 to 150°C.

ZAROX OYN 51, IKV FLUOR 32, 70, 150 and 250 are PFPE synthetic oils with high heat and chemical resistance for extended re-lubrication frequencies. They are compatible with most plastics and rubbers including EPDM and are used in the food industry on ovens chains for temperatures up to 260°C in continuous use.
