Foodgrade lubrication storage systems

April 28, 2022

Inadequate lubricant storage is still a common non-compliance with the BRC Global Standard, despite solutions being readily available for many years.

Often a consequence of a ‘stuck in a rut’ reactive maintenance culture, improper lubricant storage is the root cause of so many issues our teams see when going into new-customer sites. Fix the root cause, however, and many compliance-related boxes can be ticked in one fell swoop.

Storage solutions that are part of a holistic, systemised approach really are the first step to an improved lubrication culture and help change the mindset to one of pro-active best practice.

Activate recognised the importance of this a long time ago. Innovative lubrication systems are the core of our offering and the reason why we are able to provide 'right first time' solutions. Our unique visual management approach has audit compliance built in from the start and enables a meticulously ordered oil store with minimal risk of misapplication.

The classic System8®

System8® is the famous open storage unit that has formed the core of our visual management system for many years. System8® enables a meticulously ordered oil store by incorporating all required oil containers, Oilsafe cans and aerosols in one place.

The unit is bunded to safely contain any spills and there are expansion options (such as shadow boards for grease gun storage) to ensure that the system is 100% tailored to your specific needs. Lastly, the Compliance Manual sits on the system, keeping all essential paperwork on hand for the auditors.

The powerful benefits of System8®, combined with our high-quality synthetic lubricants and unrivalled customer support, allow us to guarantee compliance on food-grade lubrication to the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety and all UK retail audits.

Lockable stainless-steel cabinets

A natural evolution of System8®, our state-of-the-art stainless-steel cabinets are a neat solution for complying with the requirement for “a designated storage area with restricted access to authorised personnel”. They are of high-quality construction, durable and lockable, and available in a range of sizes to accommodate differing inventory and oil store requirements.

Our food grade lubricant storage cabinets are resistant to chemicals used in the hygiene process and feature a bunded internal sump tray fixed in the base. The large size cabinet also features adjustable feet - ideal for use in the production area.
