Hydrotex Launches New Series of Food-Grade Lubricants

Noria news wires

Hydrotex recently launched a new series of premium food-grade lubricants. The Ultra-Kleen XPL series incorporates a robust additive package to provide wear protection and extend fluid life. The lubricants in the series feature wide operating temperature ranges, making them ideal for food-processing and packaging equipment in both hot and cold environments.

“We cover a wide range of applications in food processing and packaging,” said Bill Link, Hydrotex’s vice president of food processing. “We see everything from 50-year-old gearboxes to the newest technology in processing and packaging. Demanding production schedules, extreme temperatures, water washdowns and sanitation chemicals present additional application challenges. The addition of the Ultra-Kleen XPL series enables Hydrotex to provide a wider range of solutions to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry.”

The new series includes ISO viscosity grades 22 through 680, making the lubricants suitable for a variety of applications, such as pneumatics, compressors, hydraulics, gear drives and specialized food-processing equipment.

“The industry spoke, and we listened,” said Eric Cline, Hydrotex’s director of research and development. “Lubrication technology has advanced to the point where food processors no longer need to choose between equipment reliability and food safety. Ultra-Kleen XPL provides industrial-grade performance in an NSF H1-registered food-grade product.”
