Typical storage before System8®

Storage after System8®

“Activate are great, the System8® satisfies our audit processes on plant and the colour coding is brilliant.”

Business Unit Engineering Manager

The problem

Existing Lubricant Storage Situation

The site stored 37 lubricants from 14 manufacturers, with no methodical storage system. Of these lubricants, 20 were not NSF H1 registered.

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 System8® free eight week trial concluded extremely successfully and a total of 6 System8® stations have been installed across the site.

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 from 37 lubricants to 15 foodgrade H1 registered specialist products. Rationalisation of manufacturers from 10 to 1. A system of control, providing colour coding and a dispensing system, enabling accurate selection of correct lubricant.
