Bearing grease for Kosher food

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Schaeffler UK has introduced FAG Arcanol FOOD2, a new rolling bearing grease that is certified for use in both Halal and Kosher food processing environments.

This certification is important because Jewish and Muslim food laws apply not only to the food or beverage being produced, but also to the machines and environments in which they are processed.

The FAG Arcanol FOOD2 rolling bearing grease is also registered to category H1 with the US National Sanitation Foundation. It maintains its flow properties in cold environments down to -30°C.

Typical applications for the rolling bearing grease include filling plants, packaging and sealing machines, meat and fish processing machines, freezing systems and other plant and equipment in the food and beverage industries.

FAG Arcanol FOOD2 therefore not only meets the strict standards and religious requirements in the food industry, but also withstands low ambient temperatures and high stresses. In FE8 wear protection tests rolling bearings and angular contact ball bearings that were lubricated with this bearing grease achieved better results than the previous version of the lubricant.
