Food grade lubricant for a food, beverage, cosmetic or pharmaceutical company, or any other firm that manufactures products that will be directly consumed or used by people, processes must be highly scrutinized for cleanliness, contamination, sanitation and quality. For this reason, such companies have a particularly difficult task when it comes to lubrication, not just the task of lubricating correctly, but in determining which lubricant to use and where.
In beverage production, meat processing, bakeries or dairy production, many different processes are found. Cleaning installations, filling and labeling machines, shrink and deep freezing tunnels or pellet presses all have different lubrication requirements. Lubricants used in bread production, for example, must withstand temperatures of up to 250 °C.
OMICS International organizes 1000+ Global events every year across the Globe. OMICS International Agri, Food and Aqua Conferences is a hub which covers the innards of Agriculture, Food and aquaculture sciences which serves as a major platform for the transfer of scientific knowledge through which are arranged parallel to the scientific-sessions.
Scope and Importance:
Lubricant equipment used in the food processing industry presents a unique challenge. The technical performance characteristics required from a food-grade lubricant are the same as other lubricant; friction control, wear prevention, corrosion and oxidation protection and efficient power transfer, but food grade lubricants must also comply with industry standards on the use of approved base fluids and additives.
The food grade lubricants market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% between 2015 and 2020, in terms of volume. The largest type of food grade lubricants based on the base oil type is white mineral oil; followed by synthetic oil which includes PAO, PAG, and others. The demand for food grade lubricants is mainly driven by increased concern for food safety. Also, the growth of the processed food industry is driving the growth of food grade lubricants in countries with stringent regulations on non-food chemicals used in food and beverages industry. The consumption of food grade lubricants is the highest in the European region. The region accounted for over 50.0% of the total market in 2014, in terms of volume. The growth of food grade lubricants in North America is also estimated to be high due to their increasing adoption to reduce the risk of contamination.
