Krytox 227 FG —Setting the Standard for the Corrugating Industry
Since the 1980s, Krytox 227 FG anticorrosion greases have set the standard for high temperature bearing lubrication in corrugator applications. These products are the same high performance formulation the corrugated industry has trusted for years and, we are pleased to announce, are now certified for incidental food contact.
NSF Certification Means Safety and Confidence
To provide absolute confidence and safety in food-related operations, these products are NSF H-1 food grade certified. Corrugator Krytox 227 FG provides you with peace-of-mind and full confidence that Krytox™ greases are non-toxic, and completely biologically and environmentally inert. Krytox™ corrugator greases are recommended for use in high temperature corrugated equipment applications and manufacture of food packaging materials where an H-1 rated lubricant is required.
Reliability and Performance for Your Most Demanding Needs
High temperature, extreme pressure Krytox greases excel in the most demanding environments. Their nonoxidizing chemistry and wide temperature range allows them to be used in temperature extremes. Its superior oil film strength reduces friction and abrasive wear to significantly extend equipment life in severe duty applications. Krytox provides excellent water washout resistance, and superior rust and corrosion protection for bearings and components. Krytox is silicone-free, contains no VOC materials or chlorine, and is not hazardous to the atmosphere or ozone layer.
Chemical and Environmental Compatibility
While Krytox fluorinated greases are non-reactive, its PFPE chemistry is very different from standard hydrocarbon or synthetic chemistries and should never be mixed with non-fluorinated greases.
Krytox lubricants are inert and will not react with any materials they may come in contact with. The polymeric nature of these products is extremely resistant to moisture, so it stays in place during cleaning. Cleaners and disinfectants, both acidic and caustic types, do not affect them. Steam and high temperatures will not damage them. They do not damage plastic or elastomer seals, or cause corrosion to metals. They are nonflammable and are safe for use in oxygen service.
Packing the Bearing
New bearings should be inspected for damage and cleanliness before use. New unlubricated bearings are often coated with hydrocarbon-based rust preventive oils to protect them during storage. These preservative
oils must be removed when using Krytox™ as a lubricant. Failure to do so could result in reduced bearing life. The preservatives coat the bearing surface to prevent rust and corrosion; but, if not removed prior to use, will prevent the grease from protecting the metal surface. If left on the bearing, the preservative coating can oxidize and harden, and can create debris that will contaminate the grease.
