Krytox™ NSF H-1 Food Grade Lubricants – Safe for Incidental Food Contact

Choosing the correct Food Grade Lubricants

Choosing the right lubricant for your equipment just got a lot easier with H-1 certified Krytox™ food grade lubricants from Miller-Stephenson.

As with the full line of Krytox™ lubricants, Krytox™ oils and greases deliver superior performance with advanced features of high-temperature stability, nonflammability, and chemical and biological inertness. Krytox lubricants will not carbonize or form gummy deposits that typically cause failures, nor will they evaporate. Therefore, maintenance costs can be significantly reduced.

The composition of Krytox™ Food Grade Lubricants allows them to function in a wide range of operating temperatures and chemical environments. Krytox™ food grade lubricants will not break down under mechanical stress. The oils are clear, colorless, and odorless, and the grease is white.

Krytox™ lubricants comply fully with USDA performance standards for designated uses. These lubricant products are not intended to be used as direct food additives. Use Krytox™ oils and greases whenever a long-lasting, tenacious, chemically inert lubricant is needed for your demanding applications.

Food Grade Lubricants : Stability and Compatibility

Krytox™ oils contain only carbon, oxygen, and fluorine. The oils will not burn or support combustion, even in 100% liquid or gaseous oxygen. They are chemically inert and will not break
down in the presence of most chemicals.

Because Krytox™ food grade lubricants are essentially inert, they are safe to use with most metals, plastics, and seal materials, and they are completely resistant to water and steam. Krytox™ lubricants protect bearings and other components under a wide range of load and speed conditions. Components run quieter, and wear protection is extended. Krytox™ lubricants will not break down under extreme pressure or high mechanical stress.

Various grades of Krytox™ food grade lubricants are serviceable for long periods of time at continuous temperatures between –60–300 °C (–58–600 °F). There are also special grades that can routinely handle temperatures of 350 °C (662 °F) and withstand peaks up to 400 °C (752 °F) for shorter periods of time. Use Krytox™ lubricants on chains, bearings, valves, seals, or any place a long-lasting lubricant is needed.

Safety and Environmental Protection

Using Krytox™ food grade lubricants greases and oils:

  • Reduces the need for hydrocarbon lubricants
  • Helps allay any concerns about emissions or other potential environmental impact
  • Avoids the inconvenience and cost associated with the disposal of hydrocarbon-based oils and greases.

Krytox™ food grade lubricants are non-toxic, easy to handle, and do not release volatile organic compounds to the atmosphere. Additionally, Chemours has a regeneration program that reclaims used oil and restores it to its original properties. This lowers the overall cost of lubrication, and eliminates safety and environmental disposal problems.


Why Krytox?

The extended life you will see with Krytox™ Food Grade Lubricants means longer re-lubrication intervals, less maintenance, and improved cleanliness. The overall superior stability of Krytox™ lubricants also can result in less downtime and fewer failures due to lubricant carbonization, evaporation, or other deterioration. Water washout and steam cleaning will not affect Krytox™ food grade lubricants. In addition, because Krytox™ lubricants can be used in many applications and last so long, your total lubricant inventory can be reduced, as well as the need for frequent movement of drums around your facility. The combination of all of these factors translates to long-term cost savings for your business.
