"More than food safety" – Klüber Lubrication at the drinktec 2013

High-quality speciality lubricants and comprehensive services for food safety and higher production efficiency

San Giuliano Milanese, 30 agosto 2013 - There are three aspects which are of particular importance for beverage production: consumer protection through food safety, reliable manufacturing processes and reduced operational and maintenance costs. Klüber Lubrication presents solutions for these and other challenges at the drinktec 2013 under the motto "More than food safety" with its wide range of high-quality, NSF H1 and ISO 21469 registered speciality lubricants and services.

"With our products and services we address specifically some critical issues for beverage producers", explains Manjesh Babu, Market Manager Food Industry at Klüber Lubrication. "Lubrication failures in glue roller bearings in the labelling machine or problems with the seals in the mixing area of the filling machine can, for example, result in production losses. Also a wrong lubricant used in the centralised lubrication system in the blow-moulding machine could bring the production to a complete halt." Another big challenge in the beverage industry is to avoid contamination. The use of industrial lubricants in critical control points can lead to food safety issues and product recalls.

At the drinktec 2013, the tribology experts from Klüber Lubrication will be placing an emphasis on the comprehensive range of services at the trade show: Under the KlüberEfficiencySupport umbrella, Klüber offers a range of combinable services and consulting, which not only contribute to increased food safety, but also reduce wear and increase production efficiency.
Among the range of high-quality, H1-registered speciality lubricants which Klüber presents are several products which have proven their performance for the beverage industry over the last years and pioneering new products.
The new Klübersynth NH1 4-68 spray foam, for example, combines the advantages of an oil and a foam. Here, the outstanding lubrication characteristics of a synthetic oil provide excellent adhesion and other application advantages of a foam.

Klüber also has some "intelligent packs" to simplify precise lubricant metering in installations and components. The automated metering system Klübermatic ensures reliable and precise lubrication of friction points at variable lubrication intervals to avoid overlubrication.

"As the use of lubricants in the food-processing industry is subject to high requirements, we as the specialist offer our customers a comprehensive lubrication package", explains Manjesh Babu. "Lubricant users benefit from our experience and tribological know-how and do not have to worry about finding the optimum solution for their particular application themselves."

The experts from Klüber Lubrication will be pleased to answer all questions visitors may have at the drinktech 2013 in Munich from September 16-20 in hall A4, booth 228.
