In terms of grease versus oil, grease has a much lower viscosity and is generally much thicker than the average oil. In turn, they provide excellent leakage control and are ideal for open-gear systems, systems that require a heavy load, or lubricating areas that aren't easily accessible. Like any other piece of machinery, food processing machinery will also need grease to lubricate specific points and gears, but you can't use just any lubricant to do so.
Food safety standards strictly regulate what kind of lubricants you can use on your equipment and machinery. Food-grade grease allows you to lubricate your machinery without jeopardizing food processing equipment and putting consumer health at risk. At Santie Oil Co., we make it easy to find everything you need to keep your equipment in top shape while remaining in line with food safety standards.
