New synthetic high-temperature grease for food and pharmaceutical industries

Bearings used in ovens, proovers, cabinets, conveyors and motors in high production areas can come under considerable strain.

Klüber Lubrication has succeeded in developing a new high-temperature grease suitable for a wide range of applications in high production ares within the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

"In the lubrication of bearings that operated at high temperatures, manufacturers often had to lower expectations with regards to food safety and resort to industrial greases", said Paolo Spolare, Global Market Manager Food Industry at Klüber Lubrication. "Since our new high-temperature grease is designed for temperature peaks up tp 180°C it is the perfect solution not only for the lubrication of bearings in the baking industry, but also for other food industry segments.

The versatility of Klüberfood NH1 74-401 is due to the FDA approved polyurea thickener developed by Klüber Lubrication, which combines the polyurea thickener with the performance and high load carrying capacity of a synthetic base oil, resulting in a product that offers extended lubrication and maintenance intervals as well as reduced quantities of the product needed in production processes.
