Food processing machine lubrication has many of the same challenges found in all non-food processing manufacturing. Finding the perfect coolant and delivery system that will prevent friction, wear, corrosion, heat and deposits is a reality for all manufacturers and food processing plants.

With food processing plants, they rely heavily on conveyors and chained machinery to produce their products, which requires incorporating food grade lubricants and lubrication systems that prolong machine life and perform efficiently.

What is an NSF H1 Approved Lubricant?

The additional challenge presented is the processing plants should be using NSF H1 approved lubricants if during the process there is any incidental food contact. National Sanitation Foundation International (NSF) manages a voluntary registration program for non-food compounds and proprietary substances. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) previously established guidelines to standardize formulation, labeling, and usage reviews. NSF International launched this current voluntary registration program. MagLube was recently NSF H1 approved for our food grade lubricant, FC-500.

While NSF has many categories in this rating scale, the H1 is reserved for lubricants that likely will have incidental contact with food being processed for human consumption. A common example of this would be a conveyor in a food processing plant where small amounts of lubricants could drip onto the food below during processing.

MagLube’s NSF H1 Approved Lubricant FC-500

MagLube has been providing micro-lubricants and lubrication systems for over 25 years for manufacturers across the USA and world-wide. MagLube lubricants are well-known for providing customers with the best micro-lubricant solution available on the market today. With the addition of MagLube FC-500, food processors are also now discovering how this food grade H1 lubricant can provide superior lubrication on their conveyors and chains in their plants.

Used in conjunction with MagLube’s proprietary MQL delivery systems… the FC-500 will provide the ultimate solution for reducing friction, wear, corrosion and heat which equates to longer machine component life. Less down time on processing plant conveyor and chain systems also equates to more revenue and profits. For example, inferior lubricant will cause chains to heat, stretch and break causing downtime while removing chain links, which eventually leads to replacing expensive chains altogether. This is a high financial burden on processing plants that can be avoided for much longer periods of time, just by simply switching to MagLube FC-500.
