APT Food Safe Lubricating Oil: Keeping Machinery Running Smoothly and Safely
APT’s Food Safe lubricating oil is a convenient and easy-to-use solution for lubricating machinery and moving parts in food processing and manufacturing environments. As an edible oil lubricant, it can be safely used as part of regular lubricating maintenance routines wherever food is being processed or manufactured.
The food lube spray meets NSF national Food Standards Agency requirements, ensuring its suitability for use in food processing, food handling, and storage areas. Additionally, it is safe for use in beverage and brewing production plants, as well as medical component manufacturing or service re-manufacturing.
Key Features for Reliable Lubrication
Versatile and Reliable Performance
The food-safe lubricating oil is water and chemical resistant, providing excellent performance and stability in various processing conditions. It offers exceptional versatility and effectively protects and extends the lifespan of machine parts.
By using food-safe lubricating oil, you can reduce wear on moving parts and ensure the smooth operation of machinery. It quickly penetrates surfaces, displaces moisture, and remains compatible with most materials found in medical, pharmaceutical, catering, and food processing plants.
Applications for Optimal Lubrication
Trust in APT’s Food Safe Lubricating Oil
APT’s Food Safe Lubricating Oil is a reliable solution for maintaining the smooth operation of machinery in food processing and manufacturing environments. Made in the UK, this lubricant ensures compliance with safety regulations and provides effective lubrication and protection.
How to use?
First ensure a clean dry surface either clean off existing lubricating fluid or lubricant grease with a food safe degreaser such magnaclean bactericidal or for heavy grease use MICROTEC 41/80 solvent degreaser.
Apply a degreaser solution to the surface by brushing or spraying. Allow a contact time, agitate if necessary rinse flush or wipe with clean cloth. Apply dry lube to the surface try not to over spray. Leave to dry and continue operation. For re-application follow the same process
For more information on how to clean, degrease or lubricate surface in industrial manufacturing process please call one of our specialist who can guide and help you with choosing the right degreaser for your application. You could save of costs and down time for the future.
Is there an alternative to food grade silicone lubricant?
Yes, there is an alternative to food grade silicone lubricant. You can use a non-silicone release agent (NSR) that complies with Food Standards Agency regulations. This NSR is a silicone-free, food-safe lubricating oil that can be applied to machinery and moving parts in food and beverage processing or manufacturing.
It serves as a multipurpose machinery lubricant that lubricates, penetrates, prevents rust and corrosion, and can be used within a wide temperature range. This non-silicone release agent is water and chemical-resistant, suitable for use with food-safe sprayers, auto-lubricating dosing systems, cams, rollers, cables, castors, hinges, bearings, pins, and chains. It is vegetable-based, colorless, non-staining, and meets FDA and NSF standards.
What are non-silicone release agents (NSRs) for food processing?
Non-silicone release agents (NSRs) are well-recognized alternatives to traditional food grade silicone lubricants. For over 30 years, APT has been producing a highly regarded NSR called “Food Lube,” which complies with Food Standards Agency regulations. This multipurpose machinery NSR lubricates, penetrates, prevents rust and corrosion, and is fully biodegradable and non-toxic.
It is exceptionally versatile, safeguarding and extending the lifespan of machine parts. Food Lube quickly penetrates and displaces moisture, making it compatible with most materials found in medical, pharmaceutical, catering, and food and beverage processing plants.
What can be used as a non-silicone release agent (NSR) for food processing?
To ensure the safety of lubricants and lubricating substances in the food and beverage industry, it is essential to use a non-silicone release agent (NSR) that complies with NSF (National Food Safety) standards and is approved for use in the food and beverage sector.
These NSRs should be tasteless, non-staining, odor-free, edible, and suitable for use over a wide temperature range. APT’s Food Lube, made from vegetable oil, meets these criteria and has been NSF-approved for use in food and beverage plants, medical component manufacturing, and other service re-manufacturing applications.
What is the meaning of a non-silicone release agent (NSR) for food processing?
For a lubricant to be considered food-safe, it must be non-toxic and safe for use in situations where it may come into contact with food and beverages during manufacture and supply. It should also be approved by NSF (National Food Safety) standards, tasteless, odorless, non-staining, and safe for use on all materials commonly used in the food and beverage industry.
APT’s Food Lube, a non-silicone release agent (NSR), offers a wide temperature range and can be used in a versatile manner to protect and extend the life of machine parts. Formulated with vegetable oils, it is entirely safe for use in environments where incidental contact with food may occur.
