Food machinery lubricants key to plant success
When it comes to food, beverage and pharmaceutical applications, Lubrication Engineers food grade oil and food grade grease can play a significant role in preventing costly damage brought on by severe operating conditions. Our high-performance food grade greases and oils are registered NSF H1 for incidental food contact, certified Kosher Pareve, and certified Halal by IFANCA – making them suitable for use in food manufacturing plants.
Regardless of load, temperature, environment and speed, LE has a suitable food machinery lubricant solution for your facility. Some of LE’s food machinery lubricants are additive-free USP-grade white mineral oils, while others contain our exclusive additive Quinplex that imparts various qualities to our food machinery lubricants, including impact resistance, wear reduction, and increased oil film strength.
Our formulation of food grade greases and oils have been used in food manufacturing operations for years to provide dependable reliable operation. Typical applications where our customers have used LE’s food grade lubricants include blenders, bottle washers, cams, conveyors, gearboxes, slides, conveyer chains, cookers, bottling machines, packaging equipment, valves, hydraulics, canning machines, bushings and more. We have hundreds of testimonials showcasing how we have helped customers with their lubrication reliability, including critical applications and equipment.
Food machinery lubricants are key to your plants success.
A high-performance food grade oil or grease can go a long way toward combating severe operating conditions and preventing the toll these conditions can take on expensive machinery.
Food processing equipment requires tough, durable lubricants that must withstand conditions such as washdowns, high oven temperatures and areas susceptible to high contamination. Our H1 and H2 lubricants include solutions for heat, cold, moisture, rust and oxidation, wear, foaming, staining, odor, frequent visual inspections, and much more.

LE Quinplex 4022-4023-4024-4025
Food grade machinery lubricant - Semi-Synthetic Grease Protects Against Moisture & Other Harsh Conditions at Food Manufacturing Plants. Exhibits long-lasting mechanical stability, does not change consistency after being worked thousands of times.
4070-4071-4072 Quincal™ Syn Food Grade Grease
Formulated for use in food processing applications, superior mechanical stability, low oil bleed, tackiness and water resistance. Especially effective on bearings operating in a warm, moist environment or in operations where a lot of water is needed to keep equipment cool.
H1 Quinplex High Temperature Lubricant 4051
Designed to withstand high temperatures, staying in place to provide constant lubrication. It also resists oxidation and vaporization, and it repels water. NSF H1 certified, it is suitable for use in food processing and other sensitive environments.
NSF H1 and USDA H2 food machinery lubricants
A variety of food, beverage and pharmaceutical plant applications require the use of both H1 and H2 lubricants. NSF H1-certified lubricants have been cleared for use in USDA-inspected food processing plants, and can be used where incidental food contact may occur. The Orthodox Union also certifies all LE H1 lubricants – except for H1 Machine Oil – Kosher Pareve. H2 lubricants meet USDA H2 criteria for nonfood contact areas of food processing plants. Most LE lubricants meet USDA H2 criteria.
An H1 lubricant can serve as a protective anti-rust film, a release agent on gaskets or seals of tank closures, and as grease for machine parts and equipment. Uses for H2 lubricants include any nonfood contact areas of a food or beverage plant. These applications are usually below the production line and include oven chains, air compressors, oil circulating systems, enclosed gears, industrial turbines, hydraulics and oiled bearings.
