Food Grade Lubricants
Lubrication Engineers, supplies a variety of high-performance oils and greases specially formulated to
meet the needs of food, beverage and pharmaceutical operations. LE knows about the severe operating conditions and
expensive machinery at these companies. That’s why our H1 and H2 products include solutions for heat, cold, moisture, rust and oxidation (R&O), wear, foaming, staining, odour, frequent visual inspections and much more.
The following lubricants comprise most of LE’s business with food, beverage and pharmaceutical operations.
Food Grade Approvals:
Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI)
H1 Silicone Spray 804
Silicone-based spray for use as a lubricant with incidental food contact. May be used on machine parts and equipment in locations in which there is potential exposure of the lubricated part to food. For food plant and other industrial use. Certified NSF H1 and Kosher-Pareve.
H1 Quinplex® Food Grade Grease 4022-4023-4024-4025
H1 Quinplex® Food Machinery Lubricant (4025-4022) is a semi-synthetic grease suitable for a broad operating temperature range. In addition to being a food grade grease - NSF H1 registered for incidental food contact - it is also robust enough to withstand moisture, high temperatures, extreme pressures and other harsh conditions found at food manufacturing plants. It features an aluminum complex thickener base, providing extreme water resistance, excellent mechanical stability, reversibility and tackiness.
Key additives include Quinplex®, LE's proprietary impact-resistant additive, and a rust and oxidation inhibitor. Switching to H1 Quinplex® Food Machinery Lubricant results in longer bearing life, fewer equipment repairs, less downtime and lower lubricant consumption.
H1 Quincal® Food Grade Grease LE4072
Formulated for use in food processing applications, H1 Quincal™ Syn FG Grease features a synthetic base fluid, calcium sulfonate complex thickener, and Quinplex, LE's proprietary impact-resistant additive. This premium combination imparts a very high dropping point, exceptional inherent extreme pressure (EP) characteristics, superior mechanical stability, low oil bleed, tackiness and water resistance.
H1 Quinplex® Penetrating Oil & Lubricant LE4058
Outstanding food grade, penetrating oil and lubricant. Works quickly to dissolve rust and free-up frozen parts. Penetrates and leaves a heavy lubricant film for further lubrication and corrosion prevention. NSF H1 certified for food processing equipment. Certified Halal by IFANCA, Certified Kosher Pareve.
H1 Quinplex® Penetrating Oil & Lubricant LE4059 (Aerosol)
Outstanding aerosol food grade penetrating oil and lubricant. Works quickly to dissolve rust and free-up frozen parts. Rapidly penetrates and leaves a heavy lubricant film for further lubrication and corrosion prevention. Formulated from USP Grade mineral oils and other USDA H1 rated components.
H1 Overnworx™ Syn Chain Lubricant LE4061
Ovenworx™ H1 Syn Chain Lubricant (4061) was formulated specifically to combat the demanding conditions present with oven chain applications. In addition, it is approved for incidental food contact and contains no artificial dyes, making it a good choice for food manufacturing plants.
Oven chain efficiency is dependent upon a lubricant that can keep the chain operating freely and smoothly, fighting the ever present heat and moisture that can cause corrosion and eventually lead to premature failure of oven chain pins and bushings. Only the most robust lubricant formulations can perform in this application; it is not an area to cut corners. If the oven chain fails, output comes to a screeching halt.
In addition to this high level of protection, equipment runs more cleanly and efficiently with Ovenworx™ 4061, which lubricates without the need of solids. Lubricants with solids have to be stirred to keep the solids distributed within the carrier and prevent them from falling out of the suspension. Solids also can create housekeeping issues by building up over time, creating gum and gunk around the application area, especially when over-applied.
