PhyMet's MPF-0696 and MPF-1150 food grade lubricants are NSF registered for both H1 and H2 applications.
MPF-0696 can be used to lubricate bearings and can be provided in solid profiles. It contains corrosion inhibitors, anti-oxidants and E. P. (Extreme Pressure) additives. The E. P. additive helps in reducing friction between heavily loaded rolling elements. This product has an effective temperature range of –49°F to 210°F.
MPF-1150 is a new formula developed by PhyMet in response to our customers’ request for a food grade product specifically designed for large, heavily loaded bearings. MPF-1150 is similar to MPF-0696, but contains a higher viscosity oil. The effective temperature range is -30°F to 210°F.
What do H1 and H2 mean?
The USDA created the food grade designations of H1 and H2. The H1 designation is for lubricants that are used in food processing environments where there is the possibility of incidental food contact. H2 lubricants are used in locations where there is no possibility of food contact. Prior to 1999, the USDA was responsible for registering food grade products. All USDA product registrations prior to 1999 are still in effect.
After 1999, responsibility for registering food grade lubricants passed to the National Sanitary Foundation (NSF). MicroPoly® formula MPF-0696 has been registered with the NSF as both an H1 and an H2 lubricant. For more information about the NSF standards, please visit www.nsf.org.
All food grade products are initially white, but over time will change to yellow with exposure to light. This color change does not affect the performance of the product.
