Food grease based on aluminium complex thickener and white mineral oil
FOOD-PLUS Grease ALU-COMPLEX WM 1 is an aluminum complex grease that is specifically formulated for applications requiring a food-grade lubricant. It is made with complex soap, white medicinal oil, a firm additive package, and authorized solid lubricants, which offer excellent lubricating properties and high-water resistance, making it ideal for applications that experience both high loads and water presence. This product can be used for bearings that operate within a temperature range of -20 to 150°C and is highly suitable for lubricating chains or conveyor chains that operate in very wet conditions, which is frequently encountered in packing operations and slaughterhouses. Additionally, FOOD-PLUS Grease ALU-COMPLEX WM 1 is better suited for centralized systems than FOOD-PLUS Grease ALU-COMPLEX WM 2 because of its excellent pumpability.

In industries dealing with food, lubrication requirements are multifaceted, given the diverse machinery and equipment in use. Common needs include the lubrication of bearings and general equipment to ensure smooth operations and reduced wear. Additionally, slide ways and chains often require lubrication to minimize friction. In environments with water exposure, like in the processing of food items, the lubrication of water valves and taps becomes essential. Given the industry's stringent safety standards, the lubricants used must be safe and shouldn't pose any health risks in case of incidental contact with food products.
Superior pumpability denotes the ease with which a grease can be pumped or circulated in centralized lubrication systems. A product with enhanced pumpability ensures consistent and smooth circulation in such systems, reducing the chances of blockages or inconsistencies in lubrication delivery. Therefore, for centralized systems that rely on efficient circulation of lubricants, a product with superior pumpability stands out as a more fitting choice.
The grease's operational temperature range of -20 to 150°C signifies its adaptability to varying environmental conditions. It can effectively lubricate machinery parts in colder environments without becoming too thick and losing its lubricating properties. Similarly, in hotter conditions, it doesn't thin out excessively, ensuring consistent protection. This wide temperature range assures industries of its reliability, regardless of their geographical location or operational conditions.
Water resistance is crucial for this grease, especially considering its applications in environments with high moisture levels, such as packing operations and slaughterhouses. A grease that can retain its lubrication properties despite exposure to water ensures that machinery components remain protected from potential damage and wear. By repelling water and preventing washout, the grease guarantees smooth machinery operations even in extremely wet conditions.
The robust additive package in the grease functions to boost its overall performance. These additives can provide properties like anti-wear, anti-rust, and anti-oxidation. They enhance the grease's ability to protect machinery components from wear and corrosion, especially in challenging environments. Furthermore, they can also prolong the lifespan of the lubricant, ensuring it continues to perform optimally over extended periods.
White medicinal oil is a highly refined paraffinic oil that is colorless, tasteless, and odorless. It serves as a base oil in the product, providing smooth lubrication. Given its purity and non-toxic nature, white medicinal oil is frequently used in products that have potential contact with food. Its inclusion ensures that the grease remains safe for use in food-related applications, providing efficient lubrication while meeting stringent safety standards.
Aluminum complex grease is a unique formulation that sets itself apart due to its superior water resistance and excellent temperature stability. This kind of grease has a complex soap structure, allowing it to provide consistent lubrication under varied conditions. Its compatibility with most other types of greases and its resistance to breakdown in the presence of water make it particularly suitable for applications requiring prolonged exposure to moist or wet conditions.
