Minimising the risk of contamination by undesired substances is a focus

 for every food processing company. Legislative authorities call for stronger controls and, thus, all the companies in the food supply chain from agriculture to the store have to develop a deep internal analysis of their production, maintenance and cleaning processes.

In addition to the latest product developments, Klüber Lubrication will be demonstrating at Anuga FoodTec 2018 from March 20 to 23 how the tribology expert's speciality lubricants and custom-fit services can minimise the risk of contamination in the manufacturing process through:

  • the usage of a minimum quantity of lubrication
  • high quality products and services
  • high safety standards

 “Issues such as MOSH and MOAH currently cause uncertainty among manufacturers, as even the slightest trace of these substances may lead to expensive product recalls and damage to the company’s reputation,” says Paolo Spolaore, Global Market Manager Food Industry of Klüber Lubrication. “Although lubricants used in the food processing machines do not seem to be one of the main sources of possible contamination, the improvements achievable through a highly professional lubrication management are widely underestimated also by many of the most renowned lubricant manufacturers.”

Klüber Lubrication’s products are designed for minimum quantity lubrication. Consequently, even very small amounts are sufficient to achieve the desired lubricating effect. The economical use of lubricants also leads to a lower demand for energy and cleaning procedures, which also contributes to more sustainability in the company.


Klüber Lubrication’s specialty lubricants for the food industry comply with the highest hygiene standards according to the recommendations of the European Food Safety Authority. The tribology expert’s portfolio includes high-quality, precisely fitting special lubricants for all applications in the food industry, which are NSF H1 registered and certified according to ISO 21469 in accordance with the highest safety standards. High-quality services, such as regular lubricant analyzes, also help to identify and eliminate the risk of contamination at an early stage.
