High performance lubricants and greases for special applications
With its HQ and state-of-the-art manufacturing plant based in Stoke-on-Trent, FUCHS LUBRITECH (Speciality division within FUCHS LUBRICANTS (UK) plc), manufactures high performance lubricants and greases for special applications.
Within the comprehensive product portfolio is CASSIDA, the NSF H1 registered food grade lubricants range, this being the first food grade lubricant range to receive ISO 21469 certification, it is pleased to add CASSIDA Chain Oil XTE to its CASSIDA food grade range.
The synthetic CASSIDA Chain Oil XTE, heralds a new era in food grade (NSF H1) high temperature chain lubrication and is perfect for high temperature applications, it boasts excellent performance up to 300°C.
CASSIDA Chain Oil XTE can successfully replace other ester or PAO-based oils with no miscibility issues
Tim Parish, of the FUCHS LUBRITECH Speciality Division, said: “We are delighted to launch this industry-leading chain oil. We identified a need for a product with higher thermal stability for ovens rising to beyond 240°C and up to 300°C.
Our R&D department developed a new technology and a special additive package which achieved this, and following independent benchmark testing and real-life scenarios, the product outperformed equivalent grades through extraordinary lower evaporation rates, reduced formation of burned solid residues and corrosion resistance to provide improved reliability and performance of critical high temp chain applications.”
CASSIDA Chain Oil XTE offers:
- Thermal stability up to +300 °C
- Extraordinary low evaporation loss – extending frequency of lubrication intervals
- Reduced formation of burned solid residues
- Medium viscosity for easy application
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Easily application – brush, baths or automatic lubrication systems
- Neutral odour and taste
- Solvent-free formulation to provide greater safety in use
The product was proven in demanding applications such as horizontal pizza ovens, beverage shrink wrapping ovens and pitta bread ovens.
As companies in the food sector are at a turning point where they need a lubricant partner to comply with the food safety standards and highest performance, the dedication of FUCHS R&D teams ensure their survival and growing.
Tim added: “Every trial that we have embarked on with Cassida Chain Oil XTE has been successful and resulted in the customer wanting to purchase the product. This is testament to the quality and performance of this new chain oil technology”
The more sensitive and demanding the application, the more important is the use of suitable lubricants. Wherever food, drinks, or animal feed are produced, processed, bottled, or packaged, CASSIDA specialty lubricants from FUCHS LUBRITECH satisfy the highest safety requirements along with the highest technical performance. They thereby provide for a smooth production process, a high level of efficiency, and a longer operating life for machinery and systems.
