The problem

Existing Lubricant Storage Situation

The existing lubricant inventory included approximately. 47 lubricants from 17 manufacturers. 21 of these lubricants are not NSF H1 registered – required to meet the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety. The products were stored in a number of different locations.

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 very successfully on site, with interactive product and application training provided to a number of the engineers and further lubrication and reliability training provided too.

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 47 lubricants to 18 foodgrade H1 registered specialist products. Rationalisation of manufacturers from 10 to 1. A system of control in one place, providing colour coding and a dispensing system enabling accurate selection of the correct lubricant.

Performance and service

The engineers were very happy with the System and products and giving excellent feedback, breakdowns were reduced instantly, product build up problems were solved and the noise level from the plant running was reduced due to the high performance fluids.
