Pellet pressing is one of the most important processes where the feed mash is pelletised through a wide range of temperatures from 80 ˚C to 130 ˚C and it typically consumes up to 60% of the total energy consumption. In a pellet mill, the machines are subjected to constant heat, high pressure, contaminants, and moisture. The right lubricant used is therefore important to protect the machines, prevent unplanned downtime and lower overall costs.

Specialty lubricants for animal feed industry

We offer you a selection of greases to meet your individual operative goals, such as cost reduction via longer relubrication intervals, less consumption, and food safety in this challenging environment of the animal feed production process.

Your benefits at a glance

  • Low maintenance cost with increased food safety and an improved ecological footprint
  • Reduction of lubricant cost
  • Longer maintenance intervals
  • Longer bearing life
  • Higher production efficiency

Food safety – a critical factor

Chemical contamination is always a potential risk to food safety in food production facilities. Cross contamination can take place during production, processing, storage, packaging and transportation. One of the many potential source of contaminations is the lubricants used in the machines.

NSF H1 accreditation verifies that your product is suitable to use in applications where incidental contact could occur between the lubricant and food during normal operations. Klüber Lubrication offers a broad range of high-grade NSF H1 lubricants.

In the production of animal feed, accidental contact between the product and lubricant can happen. To avoid such cross contaminations, it is recommended to use high-quality, H1 food grade lubricants.

Our high-performance food grade H1 lubricants offer many benefits:

  • Extended maintenance intervals and predictable system downtimes
  • Optimal lubrication schedules for lower lubricant consumption
  • The potential to make significant energy savings
