Clarion Food Grade A/W Hydraulic Oils use an additive system designed specifically for lubricants for food processing equipment. They are formulated with a high purity white mineral oil and additive system and are available in five ISO viscosity grades. They meet the requirements of 21 CFR 178.3570 for lubricants with the possibility of incidental contact with food and are registered as NSF H1 lubricants, as well as being certified as Kosher. These lubricants are colorless, odorless, tasteless, non-staining and provide excellent wear, rust, and oxidation protection, fortified with high molecular weight polymer for improved high temperature performance.

Superla white oils are highly refined, odorless, tasteless, crystal clear white mineral oils for use when a USP-grade white mineral oil is required. They can be used as a defoamer in food and as a release agent for bakery pans and dough dividers. The oils also form a protective coating on raw fruits, vegetables, and meat, and control dust in cereal grains.

For dusty conditions
Food processing machinery requires a heavy-duty grease that can maintain proper bearing lubrication free from dust and contamination. Facilities such as those that produce pet food require regular re-application of grease because they are challenged with developing quality feed in often extremely dusty conditions. FM Grease HD 2 was specially designed to hold up to harsh production environments while also meeting the specific needs and requirements of the food industry. Recommended for use in machinery that requires frequent re-application of grease, this grease provides excellent oxidation and mechanical stability and corrosion prevention characteristics.

A high-performance NLGI 2 synthetic grease, SHC Polyrex 462, has been developed for general industrial and food processing machinery to help improve the reliability of equipment that operates in traditionally difficult-to-lubricate, high-temperature applications. This grease is formulated with a proprietary polyurea thickener and a high-performance additive technology. It is engineered to promote food-safe processing, deliver exceptional equipment performance, reduce maintenance costs and increase productivity. It protects equipment that operates in extreme conditions, including temperatures as high as 160°C.
