Food Grade Lubricants from Brody Chemical

Health and safety are essential when you work around food. At Brody Chemical, our food grade lubricants always meet the standards of cleanliness and hygiene. A food grade lubricant must perform the same technical functions as any other lubricant. It must provide protection against wear, friction, corrosion and oxidation, dissipate heat and transfer power, be compatible with rubber and other sealing materials and provide a sealing effect in some cases.

Food grade greases and oils must resist deterioration from food products, chemicals and water/steam, exhibit a neutral behavior toward plastics and elastomers and have the ability to dissolve sugars. These lubricants must also comply will all food/health and safety rules, while being physiologically static, tasteless, odorless and approved worldwide.

Greases and Oils for Vehicles and Machinery

Oils are thin liquids made of long polymer chains with additives like antioxidants to prevent corrosion and detergents to keep deposits from forming. This lubricant can be used for hinges, bearings, tool maintenance and sharpening blades. Common types of oil are motor oil and chain oil.

Greases are made by using oil (typically mineral oil) and mixing it with thickeners like lithium-based soaps. They might also contain additional lubricating particles like graphite or molybdenum disulfide. Greases combine lubricating properties of oils with added stickiness, allowing the lubricant to adhere to the surfaces better. Greases can act as a barrier that protects surfaces from contaminants that can corrode or damage them. Like oils, greases come in different consistencies. Grease can be used for gears, bearings, chains and linkages, and the most common types are white lithium grease and silicone grease.
