In most of the dood plants, lubricants have to face many challenges. To ensure optimal productivity, expansive equipments have to be perfectly lubricated even in severe conditions, like a high contamination with water, juices, or even food residues, and changing temperature due to cooking, sterilization, or cold storage. Contact with food is prohibited for standard lubricants because of potential effects on health.

For this reason, TotalEnergies Lubrifiants has designed Nevastane, specifically designed for the food industry. These lubricants ensure safety in case of food contact without compromising the performance of your installations. They are homologated NSF H1, and have been formulated in compliance with the USA FDA (Food and Drug Administration) chapter 21 CFR 178 3570.

Our lubricants for frozen and canned food industry

TotalEnergies Lubrifiants is an experienced multi-specialist partner able to offer a large range of specialized lubricants. Our range of lubricants specifically designed for food processing industry covers all of the industrial applications present in your plants. Our lubricants ensure that your equipment is reliable and always available for your production. We can also help you rationalize your lubricant references which is essential for your maintenance operations, simplifying them and reducing human mistakes. Our differenciated packaging colors enable to recognize the green Nevastane lubricants for areas where food contamination may occur, and the iconic red TotalEnergies drums for standard industrial areas.

A full range of lubricants homologated NSF H1, NSF 3H, for the frozen and canned food industry: Nevastane

In the food processing industry, your equipments have to face a huge range of temperatures, from very hot to very cold ones. Many products are washed, cut, and then cooked, packaged and then stored. Depending on the processes, temperatures can vary from +180 °C (frying) up to - 18°C (deep freezing). Our lubricants have to remain efficients in every of these situations. Lubricants don't have to leak under you equipments, or even burn forming residues when exposed to hot temperatures. On the other hand, the lubricant needs to still remain liquid during the freezing processes. NSF H1 lubricants also have to be used in fridge compressors, to avoid air contamination in the storage warehouse.

Our lubricants for bearings in frozen and canned food industry: Nevastane MP 1.5 and Nevastane XS

In industrial processes, bearings can operate in very different conditions. Using the right grease can help you to extend drastically their shelf life. We can recommend you the exact grease that meet your expectation. TotalEnergies Lubricants has developed Nevastane greases homologated NSF H1 for industrial applications with risks of contact with food. These greases are specifically designed to resist the specific food industry constraints such as steam, juices, regular cleanings, extreme temperatures...

Our lubricants for gears in frozen and canned food industry: Nevastane EP and Nevastane XSH

TotalEnergies Lubrifiants has developed a wide range of oils with strong properties to resists extreme pressure environment for the lubrication of all your spur gears, helical gears, spiral bevel gears, worm gears, pinions… Wherever there is a risk of contact with food or not. We offer very competitive mineral formulas. For gears operating in severe conditions, we also offer synthetic formulas based on carefully selected PAO or PAG able to bring extra properties such as limited oxidation. By reducing the friction coefficient in your equipment, these synthetic lubricants will decrease your energy consumption while extending the wear and your equipment shelf life.

Our lubricants for hydraulic systems in frozen and canned food industry: Nevastane AW and Nevastane SH

In many industries, hydraulic oils represent the major lubricants consumption. TotalEnergies Lubrifiants has developed a wide range of hydraulic oils with strong anti-wear and anti-corrosion properties. Our ranges Nevastane AW and Nevastane SH are homologated NSF H1 and can be used in your food production, when there is a risk of contact with food. These hydraulic oils will take care of your equipment, protecting spare parts (pumps, accumulators, valves, filters…) limiting the varnish formation and the down times.
