Food grade grease handles high temperatures
05 February 2018
SKF has introduced a new high temperature, harsh environment food grade grease. LGED 2 uses a PFPE oil in combination with a PTFE thickener and is registered as NSF H1.
SKF says LGED 2 has excellent oxidation resistance, extremely low evaporation losses at high temperature, good corrosion resistance, and longevity in aggressive environments.
The grease features a wide operating temperature range (-30 to +240°C). It is suitable for extreme applications,such as wafer-baking ovens in the food industry or applications exposed to vacuum or high concentrations of oxygen.
It is also appropriate in other non-food-related applications, such as oxygen valves in the steel industry or health institutions, dryers in the textile industry, and the lubrication of plastic and/or rubber surfaces.
