Focus on: SprayOn NSF H1 High-Performance Food Grade Aerosol Lubricants

Lubricating today's Food Processing equipment presents many of the same challenges found in non-food processing plants. Lubricants must protect against friction, wear, corrosion, heat and deposits. They must also resist degradation or impaired performance when in contact with food products, process chemicals, water (steam) and bacteria. And, perhaps most importantly, they must be safe in case they ever come in contact with the food. For years, using "food safe" lubricants meant that Food Processing Maintenance Professionals had to sacrifice the performance they needed. Sprayon® felt that didn’t have to be the case.

Murlin, Sprayon® Product Manager, and Jim Belcik, Sprayon® End-User Engagement Specialist, as they talk about Sprayon®'s NSF® H1 Aerosol Lubricants during this 30-minute Q&A presentation.
