The Bel-Ray No-Tox Food Grade High Temperature Oil 220 is being applied to the side chains of the metal transfer belt that conveys the bagels through the Mondi Ovens. The oven temperature is around 240°C (464°F). Bel-Ray No-Tox Food Grade High Temperature Oil 220 is not adversely affected by exposure to this temperature and provides excellent lubrication to
the pins, bushings and sprockets of the chain. The picture to the right shows the results of a carbonization test of a competitor’s PAO 680 oil, on the left, and the Bel-Ray No-Tox Food Grade High Temperature Oil 220. One gram of each oil was exposed to 250°C (482°F) for four hours. As you can see, the competitor’s PAO 680 oil carbonized and the Bel-Ray Food Grade High Temperature Oil 220 was not affected.
The customer is very satisfied with the lubrication the Bel-Ray Food Grade High Temperature Oil 220 is providing the oven chains and the excellent performance the Bel-Ray No-Tox Food Grade Waterproof Chain Lube is providing the conveyors.
On changing over to Bel-Ray Halal approved food grade lubricants, the customer commented that he had peace of mind that Bel-Ray products worked well and that on audit he was covered with the Bel-Ray Halal Certification document.
