Food safe machine lubricants

IN THE food process industry stringent food safety standards, high productivity and problem-free operations are critical for commercial success, and food safe machine lubricants have a vital role to play. Shell developed the Cassida range of oils and greases specifically for food and beverage applications – high performance lubricants based on a blend of synthetic fluids chosen for their ability to meet the stringent requirements of the food industry. Cassida products have food grade approvals worldwide, from the US Food and Drug Administration through to the New Zealand Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, and are essential for areas where there is a high risk of contamination. From hydraulics to gearboxes, bearings to compressors, and high temperature to low temperature applications, synthetic Shell Cassida helps satisfy both performance and current food grade regulation criteria – as well as assisting process plants achieve reduced downtime from contamination and suitability for HACCP and Quality Assurance Food Safety plans. Shell Cassida Food Grade Lubricants are used globally by food, beverage and pharmaceutical manufacturers. They offer better cost benefits through longer drain intervals and less equipment wear than mineral oil food grade lubricants. Cassida lubricants are distributed in New Zealand by Orica Chemnet, whose account managers and technical specialists provide recommendations and solutions for the unique lubrication requirements found within food and beverage manufacturing plants. Orica Chemnet offers a variety of services to customers in the food and beverage manufacturing industry, including full technical support and advice, used oil management and disposal advice, oil condition monitoring, failure analysis and diagnosis, comprehensive plant audits and tailored training programmes.• reader enquiries quote: D090211
