The problem

Existing Lubricant Storage Situation

The results of a survey carried out by Activate found 23 lubricants on the site from 7 suppliers. Only 2 lubricants were foodgrade.

Potential risks

  • High risk of contamination of food by misapplication
  • Product recall from mineral oil contamination
  • Non-compliance in audit situations
  • Inadequate system of control and dispensing

The solution

Introduction of System8®

A free System8® eight week trial was concluded successfully, with the number of lubrication-related breakdowns being significantly reduced.

The benefits


Guaranteed audit compliance to the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety bringing total peace of mind. Elimination of risks and prevention of non-conformances and product recall from incidents relating to industrial lubricants/mineral oil contamination.


Rationalisation of inventory reduced from 23 lubricants to 5 NSF H1 synthetic lubricants. Rationalisation of manufacturers from 7 to 1. A system of control, providing colour coding and a dispensing system enabling accurate selection of correct lubricant.

Performance and service
