Engen Food-grade lubricants: Machine & Food friendly

| On the move

Food-grade lubricants have come into the spotlight recently as an important issue in the operational maintenance of the food production and processing industry.

Following the listeriosis outbreak of 2017 and the COVID-19 crisis that started in late 2019, food safety, and the conditions and maintenance of processing environments has never been more important.

What are food-grade lubricants?

While health and safety laws are seen as a priority for the food industry, hygiene and cleanliness standards are just as important on the workshop floor. This is where lubricants must perform their designated task of reducing wear, friction, and corrosion while having the added undertaking of being food safe.

The relentless environment of food processing environments is such that products need not only be able to endure the stresses and strains of machinery that are heavily used, but also provide optimal protection against oxidation, rust, bacteria, and any other form of contamination.

Engen’s range of quality guaranteed, food-grade lubricants are designed to meet the specific needs of the bakery, butchery, 
packaging, beverage, pharmaceutical, sugar, cosmetic, and food processing industries.

“Our product range extends the lifespan of equipment and guarantees the highest certifications for safety and quality,” says Tariq Ahmed, Engen Product Manager, Industrial Technical Advisory.

Engen FoodPure offers a comprehensive range of lubricant products which exceed industry standards, catering to every part of the manufacturing processing operation. 

“A major benefit is that there is no need to secure multiple products for each category of equipment which saves time and effort. As a non-contaminant lubricant provider, our product range reduces HSEQ risks such as spoilt products and recalls, as well as provides all the necessary reputational assurance that one would expect from a leading provider,” adds Ahmed.
