The name Ultra-Kleen™ says it all.
A full line of Food Grade lubricants, engineered for the demanding needs of the Food Processing industry. Performance, purity and dependability describe Hydrotex Ultra-Kleen Food Grade products.
The Food Processing industry presents unique challenges to lubricant manufacturers, plant lubrication personnel and even the companies that design the equipment. Machines used in food processing facilities face many of the same tribological and lubrication challenges found in other industrial manufacturing facilities. Unfortunately, many of the raw materials used to formulate lubricants that effectively address these challenges in conventional industrial applications are not permissible in food applications for safety reasons.
One way to address these challenges is to partner with a company that designs products specifically for the applications, environmental challenges and safety concerns that exist in Food Processing facilities.
Using the purest base stocks and best additives available, Hydrotex engineers high-performing solutions that will help prolong the life of your assets, reduce the disruption and costs associated with unscheduled downtime and help create a safer environment for both your products and your employees.
The Hydrotex Solution
We believe that great performing products are only one part of developing and sustaining a superior lubrication program. Lubrication accounts for one of the lowest expenses in a plant operation, yet if it is done incorrectly, it can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in repairs and downtime.
Your equipment begins to fail the minute you turn it on. How long it lasts and how well it performs is up to you.
No one at Hydrotex works alone. We provide an in-depth team of trained individuals, from the local representative to our Food Processing focused staff at our headquarters. This collaboration supports continuous improvement efforts and ensures continuity.
We start with training your team members and developing a unique Lubrication Management Plan that provides the programs, products and services based on the needs and objectives of your team members.
Your custom lubrication program may include the following:
- Training and Continuous Improvement Education Programs
- Lubrication Audits
- Equipment and Application Surveys
- Critical Equipment Identification and Reliability Tracking Program
- Product and Solution Recommendations driven by Application
- Implementation Plans, Time Tables, and Process Management
- Full portfolio of Food Grade, NSF Registered H1 / 3H products including Fluids, Greases, Process Oils and Specialty Lubricants
- Oil Analysis Programs
- Root Cause Failure Analysis
- Cost Analysis, Return-On-Investment (ROI) Processes, and Equipment Energy Reduction Studies
- Reporting Practices, Quarterly Reviews, and Follow-up
Hydrotex can help you make incremental, measurable and sustainable improvements in your lubrication program that will drive down not only your lubrication costs, but reduce your costs associated with operation and maintenance of your equipment.
