Based on our expertise, we have developed a complete range of recognized products and services for sugar cane and sugar beet processing. 

We are able to support you throughout the entire process, starting from the farm equipments lubricants, continuing with industrial lubricants for sugar cane mills, beet cutters and food grade lubricants homologated in case of incidental contact with sugar. Our lubricants are your best guarantee that your equipment is reliable and always available for your production.

Our lubricants for sugar industry

Based on a strong experience, TotalEnergies Lubrifiants has developed a complete range of recognized products and services for sugar cane and sugar beet processing. Because sugar is a food product, contamination with oil products is not acceptable. From the chrystalization step until the packaging lines, Nevastane lubricants (NSF H1) are recommended in order to limit the risks of contamination.

Specific applications in sugar industry


Our services

TotalEnergies Lubricants offers a wide range of services for industry professionals. From in use oil analysis to our TIG6 maintenance software (CMMS), our range of services is specifically designed to help you approach the management of your operations with confidence, allowing you to focus on what matters most: your production.

A full range of lubricants homologated NSF H1, NSF 3H for sugar industry: Nevastane

Nevastane is a single lubricants supplier for all your applications in the sugar industry: from farm equipment to industrial oil, and even for the finest food grade lubricants. Along the production process, our lubricants have to resist very diverse severe conditions such as extreme temperatures, heavy loads, and exposure to water and juices, while preserving food safety.

Our lubricants for sugar mills: Carter OGL

More than 80% of the sugar produced in the world is extracted from sugar canes. All sugar plants have long lines of huge mills crushing thousands of tons of sugar cane every year. These mills have strong rolls, are driven by pinions and supported by plain bearings that have to resist heavy loads and contamination with bagasse and cane juice along all the harvest season.

Using the right lubricants for these crucial equipments is key to reduce down times, and to improve the plant profitability. Our engineers can support you in adjusting the lubrication with our advanced high viscosity oil: the brand new Carter OGL range.

Our lubricants for bearings in sugar 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 extend drastically their shelf life. We can recommend you the exact grease that meets your expectation. TotalEnergies Lubrifiants has developed Nevastane greases, homologated NSF H1 for industrial applications with risks of contact with food.

These greases are specifically designed to resist the particuliar needs of the food industry induced by constraints such as steam, juices, regular cleanings, extreme temperatures...

Our lubricants for gears in sugar 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 under severe conditions, we also offer synthetic formulations based on carefully selected PAO or PAG, which can provide additional properties such as oxidation reduction.

By reducing the friction coefficient in your equipment these synthetic lubricants will also decrease your energy consumption while extending the wear and your equipment shelf life.

Our lubricants for hydraulic systems in sugar industry: Nevastane AW and Nevastane SH

For 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 the spare parts: pumps, accumulators, valves, filters limiting the varnish formation and the down times.
