Lubrication requirements for food & beverage manufacturing are far more complex than your traditional industrial lubricant. Incidental food contact, chemistry type, temperature range and water resistance all play a critical role in overall production and facility performance. Learn how the MOLYKOTE® Performance Lubricants provide best-in-class performance for a broad range of applications and equipment types.
Why Use MOLYKOTE® Food Grade Lubricants?
Excellent Emulsification Resistance
MOLYKOTE® lubricants are engineered at the molecular level for maximum saturation, eliminating potential nucleation sites in the structure that allow for bonds to form with water. This results in an inherent resistance to water for the lubricant's life cycle — providing excellent protection for equipment requiring frequent washing and rinsing without fear of sacrificing lubricant performance.
Broad Temperature Range - From Freezer to Oven
Within the food & beverage industry, there are countless processes that require extreme cold and hot environments. The MOLYKOTE® family of performance lubricants provide a range of H1 and H2 lubricants with robust temperature stability ranges:
NSF Food Grade
-76°F to 302°F
(-60°C to 150°C)
-76°F to 482°F
(-60°C to 250°C)
