Food and beverage production

Food and beverage  

Food and beverage facilities face unique challenges. Not only must you strive for maximum productivity, you must also guard against the possibility of food contamination, including contamination from lubricating oils and greases.

We provide a variety of NSF H1-registered lubricants rated for incidental food contact, including Mobil SHC Cibus™ oils and Mobil SHC Polyrex™ greases that help minimize the risk of food contamination and equipment downtime. Mobil SHC Cibus series oils are also suitable for use in Halal and Kosher (Parve) food preparation.

Mobil™ industrial lubricants for food and beverage equipment – including meat processing, dairy processing and baking equipment – are designed to help you meet the rigorous requirements found in the food and beverage industry in order to avoid contamination, all while extending the service life of machine components.

We provide a comprehensive suite of products, services and application expertise to help:

  • Enhance your productivity
  • Ensure your lubricants are compatible with your Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) risk-management lubrication plan
  • You pass compliance audits
  • Keep your equipment running longer and more efficiently

We can help you enhance and ensure food-safe production while getting more out of your equipment.
