    Presentation Title:
    The importance of high performance lubrication in food industry & food machinery hygiene goals.
    Presentation Synopsis:
    Most machines these days still need lubrication and the potential leakage of lubricants into food stuff drives customers to move to H1 lubricants. However H1 only defines the composition to be of acceptable additives and base oils. It does not define any performance of the lubricant which in itself can give exposure to increased intervention with the machine increasing chances of contamination. Thus formulating a H1 lubricant does not guarantee performance and protection of the equipment. This presentation will cover not just the importance of use of H1 lubricants but also the careful choice of lubricants that meet compositional requirements and bring extra performance. This is in addition to other considerations in selecting lubricants and handling them to help support customer in achieving their food safety and hygiene goals.
