Storage after System8®

The problem

Existing Lubricant Storage Situation

The site stored 20 products from 5 different manufacturers, with no methodical storage system. A number of these products stored were not NSF registered. A non foodgrade product had been found on a retailers food packaging which had then been found by the consumer, hence the need to move to all foodgrade lubricants.

Potential risks

  • High risk of contamination of food packaging
  • 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
