The problem

Existing Lubricant Storage Situation

The site stored 19 products from 10 different manufacturers, with no methodical storage system. 7 of the products stored were not NSF 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 free System8® eight week trial was concluded very successfully on site and 2 more systems have been purchased for other areas of 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 19 lubricants to 14 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.
