Eurol introduces new synthetic food-grade grease
Eurol Specialty Lubricants has introduced Eurol Grease HY-1/101 FD LT, a new, synthetic food-grade lubricating grease.
Eurol Grease HY-1/101 FD LT is a ‘dual purpose product’. This means the grease is suitable for use in two different key applications, being lubrication of high speed bearings under ambient conditions and slow moving beatings at extremely low temperatures. Eurol Grease HY-1/101 FD LT is NSF H1 certified and therefore allowed for use in the food industry. It is also highly suitable for non-food applications.
“The development of this innovative product ties in seamlessly to the Eurol Specialty promise to offer durable, high performance solutions to improve business operation and reduce costs,” said Bart van Hoorn, Eurol’s business manager, Specialty Lubricants.
Extended lubrication intervals
Eurol Grease HY-1/101 FD LT has been extensively tested, for example in bearings of a freeze tunnel for ice cream production. The major advantage of this product is that the bearings run smoothly at very low temperatures, ensuring the chain in the freeze tunnel does not malfunction. Wear is also kept to a minimum. Besides being highly suitable for low temperatures, Eurol Grease HY-1/101 FD LT is well suited to lubricate bearings at very high speeds and elevated operating temperatures.
“The DN factor of this grease is approximately 2.000.000. In high speed applications, we have been able to effortlessly extend lubrication intervals threefold and simultaneously prevent downtime and wear,” said van Hoorn.
The highly innovative properties of Eurol Grease HY-1/101 FD LT are down to the composition of the grease, based on SYNGIS Technology. The product comprises a “hybrid” thickener and a synthetic base oil of the latest generation.
Eurol Grease HY-1/101 FD LT is available under article number S005185 in lube shuttle cartridges and in pails.
