Lubricants in food production: beerAll recommended Cassida Products in the flowsheets are
- registered with the NSF H1 for incidental food contact - maximum allowed concentration of oil/grease in food is 10 ppm (for normal lubricants, maximum contamination allowed in Food is ZERO (0) ppm)
- synthetic and do not contain any natural products derived from animals, nuts or genetically modified organisms (GMO)
- suitable for use where vegetarian and ‘nut-free’ food is prepared
- Halal and Kosher approved
- neutral odour and taste
- biostatic – meaning
- do not promote the growth of bacteria or fungal organisms.
- do not kill bacteria or fungal organisms – important for dairy industry (yoghurt etc)
Cassida GL is
- a synthetic poly alpha olefin based enclosed gear oil for the food and beverage industry
