SKF offers new high-load, food-grade grease

SKF announced the introduction of a new high-load, food-grade grease known as LGFQ 2.

Suitable for heavy applications such as mills and presses in the food industry, this grease uses a polyalphaolefin-based oil in combination with calcium sulphonate thickener and is registered as NSF H1. Furthermore, LGFQ 2 is certified as Halal and Kosher.

SKF LGFQ 2 has a wide temperature range from -40 °C to +140 °C, enabling its use during different seasons and in various working conditions. Furthermore, it has outstanding pump ability, facilitating its use with a centralized lubrication system in order to optimise consumption and minimise risks associated with manual lubrication.

In addition, LGFQ 2 has excellent mechanical stability, preventing the grease from leaking out of the application, and very good corrosion protection and water resistance, helping to extend the life of bearings subjected to such contaminants.

SKF is a leading global supplier of bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems, and services which include technical support, maintenance and reliability services, engineering consulting and training. SKF is represented in more than 130 countries and has around 17,000 distributor locations worldwide. Annual sales in 2015 were SEK 75 997 million and the number of employees was 46 635. www.skf.com
