Stacked gears with oil dripping

Mobil SHC Cibus™ Series

Protect your food machinery equipment with lubricants that maintain viscosity and film thickness, even at high temperatures: Mobil SHC Cibus™ Series.

Our Mobil SHC Cibus™ Series food machinery lubricants are designed to provide outstanding equipment protection, long oil life and problem-free operation in food and beverage processing and packaging applications. Manufactured in ISO 22000-certified facilities that also meet the requirements of ISO 21469, Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants — which are NSF H1 registered — are formulated to withstand high and low temperatures, high loading and repeated wash downs.

These hydraulic, compressor, gear and bearing oils meet stringent FDA requirements and are:

  • Suitable for Kosher and Halal food preparation
  • Formulated to be free of animal-derived materials
  • Formulated to be free of allergens from nuts, wheat and gluten

Applications

Handling and Storage Recommendations

 It is recommended that Mobil SHC Cibus lubricants should be stored inside and segregated from other non NSF H1 lubricants.  Ideally, they should be stored in a clearly signed, separate, designated inside area.  Drums and pails should not be stacked below or above other non NSF H1 lubricants.  New packaging should be free from damage with an unbroken seal.  Record the delivery date, batch number and expiration date.  Record the date of initial seal breakage and use the contents in time by suitable stock rotation.  Close all package openings after use.  Do not replace unused oil in the container.  Use clearly labeled dedicated equipment for internal transportation.  Label machinery with the name of the correct NSF H1 lubricant where appropriate.

 

Lubricant Changeover

 While the Mobil SHC Cibus Series may be physically compatible with other NSF H1 or non NSF H1 registered mineral oil based products, a mixture may detract from their performance and also from their registration status.  Consequently it is recommended that before changing systems from non H1 lubricants to the Mobil SHC Cibus Series, or even for brand new equipment, the system should be thoroughly cleaned out and flushed to achieve the maximum performance benefits and to comply with H1 registration.

 

Applications

 Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants are recommended for use in a wide variety of hydraulic, compressor, gear and bearing applications within food and beverage processing, packaging and pharmaceuticals.  The products are effective in many applications including those where maintenance costs of component replacement, system cleaning and lubricant changes are high.

 

- Mobil SHC Cibus 32, 46 and 68 are high performance fluids intended for hydraulic, circulating, compressor and vacuum pump applications

 

- Mobil SHC Cibus 100, 150, 220, 320 and 460 are intended for gear, bearing and circulating systems

 

A suitable used oil analysis program, such as Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis from ExxonMobil, can help monitor the concentration of wear metals and provide information on appropriate actions.

 

Incidental Food Contact Only per FDA 21CFR 178.3570

 Mobil SHC Cibus series lubricants are registered to the requirements of NSF H1 for incidental food contact only which means a limitation of 10ppm oil in food product per FDA 21CFR 178.3570.  They are not to be used as direct food contact lubricants.
