LUBRICANTS FOOD INDUSTRY

Lubrication in Food Industry is a challenge for the food industry. Large-scale food processing requires machinery such as pumps, mixers, tanks, pipes, lines, chain drives, and belt conveyors. Machines used in food processing companies face the same lubrication challenges as companies in other industries. Lubricants must provide the same protection and therefore require good pump ability, as well as good oxidation, hydraulic and thermal stability. In addition, certain applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries require lubricants that retain their performance when they come into contact with food products, certain process chemicals, water, or bacteria.
