What is Food Grade Lubricant<br />Food-grade lubricants perform the same technical functions as any other lubricant: <br />It’s function is to provide protection against wear, friction, corrosion and oxidation, dissipate heat and transfer power<br />It has to be compatible with rubber and other sealing materials, as well as provide a sealing effect in some cases<br />The Food Grade Lubricants currently used in Southeast Asia are Ester-based lubricants without any renewable raw material content. <br />
Overview of Specialty Lubricants for Food Grade<br />While we regularly see processed food products in the supermarkets. <br />Hardly ever do we think of a scenario where the fresh products come in close contact with the processing machineries. <br />
Overview of Specialty Lubricants for Food Grade<br />Merits of Food Grade Lubricants<br />Provide the food manufacturer with an effective tool to control the risks caused by contamination of lubricants (chemical hazards)<br />Food manufacturers can select lubrication points as Critical Control points (CCPs) in their Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plans.<br />Food Grade Lubricant Categories<br /><ul><li>H1 lubricants are food-grade lubricants used in food-processing environments where there is the possibility of incidental food contact.
H2 lubricants are nonfood-grade lubricants used on equipment and machine parts in locations where there is no possibility of contact.
H3 lubricants are food-grade lubricants, typically edible oils, used to prevent rust on hooks, trolleys and similar equipment. </li></li></ul><li>Opportunities and Challenges of Specialty Lubricants <br />Specialty Lubricants For Food Grade and sub-sea application Market : Percent of Revenues by Segment (Southeast Asia),2009<br />The market for food grade lubricants and lubricants for subsea applications was estimated as US$39.2 million in 2009. <br />There is a very good potential for growth as traditionally the market is dominated by mineral oil based lubricants. <br />There is potential for bio-lubricants in the future because of the assured source of feedstock supply from palm oil, which is produced abundantly in Southeast Asia. However, this is a long-term prospect and will need a strong push from the government and regulatory bodies to put regulation in place to mandate the usage of bio-lubricants. <br />$39.2 million<br />Note: All figures are rounded; the base year is 2009.Source: Frost & Sullivan<br />

Current Research Initiatives in Southeast Asia Done by Malaysian Palm Oil Board<br />Advanced Oleochemical Technology Division of Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB), Malaysia, has developed six types of palm esters using palm-based material. The resulting palm esters could be used on its own as a base fluid to formulate a bio-lubricant or blended with other esters, mineral oil, or synthetic oil to produce the desired lubricants.<br />Role of Associations Like MPOB <br />Food-Grade Lubricant Patented by Malaysian Palm Oil Board<br />
