Klüber Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg Synthetic lubricating grease for valves and fittings with EPDM seals – contains an antimicrobial additive.
– Extended service intervals due to the antimicrobial additive protecting the grease against microbial degradation
– Extended relubrication intervals and seal life due to the good compatibility with EPDM
– High resistance to many types of media such as disinfectants, cleaning agents, water, steam ensuring maximum protection of seals and reducing operating costs
– NSF ISO 21469 certified – supports compliance with the hygienic requirements of your production.
Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg is a special lubricating grease based on highly viscous silicone oils and PTFE solid lubricants –
it contains an antimicrobial agent.
Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg has been developed for the lubrication of aseptic components in process equipment requiring a high level of cleanliness.
The product is registered as NSF H1 and complies with FDA 21 CFR § 178.3570. It was developed for incidental contact with products and packaging materials in the food-processing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical or animal feed industries. The use of Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg can contribute to increase safety of your production processes. We nevertheless recommend conducting an additional risk analysis, e.g. HACCP.
Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg is suitable for the lubrication of valves and fittings incorporating EPDM seals in the foodprocessing
and pharmaceutical industries and for materials used in food-processing equipment. The grease contains an antimicrobial agent which protects against microbial spoilage and contributes to extending service intervals also in critical applications like aseptic cold filling of beverages. Seals lubricated with Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg show lower friction values and wear sets in later. Besides for seals, Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg may also be used for low-speed rolling bearings subject to very low loads (C/ P > 30) used in the beverage industry where an EPDMcompatible food-grade H1 lubricant is required.
Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg is resistant to cold and hot water and steam as well as to many disinfectants and cleaning agents.
The tests conducted by the German Research Institute Weihenstephan confirm Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg leaves the formation of froth and taste of beer unaffected.
Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg is applied by means of spatula, grease gun or directly from the tube. For highly viscous lubricants, the application method should be chosen with particular care. The intake of air should be avoided, otherwise oxidation may occur at high pressure which may in turn lead to oxidative disintegration of the product. For this reason we recommend pumping the product with the
lowest pressure possible and using lines with wide diameters.
Please note, however, that due to different system configurations and application conditions the pumpability of the product has to be confirmed with the system manufacturer for each individual application. We will be pleased to provide assistance in this matter.
As a rule, users should make sure to use only new highpressure pumping lines for their lubricants.
As a precaution in the event of grease leakage, we recommend wearing suitable protection gear (e.g. safety goggles).
Do not apply Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg onto components made of nonferrous metals.
Klüberfood NH1 87-703 Hyg is neutral towards most metals, thermoplastics and elastomers. Owing to the many different elastomer and plastic compositions their compatibility should be checked prior to series applications.
