Synthetic Lubricants Engineered to Ensure Food Quality
These NSF H1 registered products help you minimize the risk of downtime so you can remain competitive and profitable.
Backed by over 100 years of industry experience and expertise in lubrication, the new Mobil SHC Cibus Series oils for food machinery are specially formulated to help maximize productivity, ensure food quality and provide high-performance lubrication in, among other things, the processing of meat, dairy, baked goods, beverage, brewery, pet foods, sugar, pharmaceuticals and grain. This series of synthetics includes compressor, hydraulic and gear oils that, together with the Mobilgrease FM Series and Mobil SHC Polyrex Series of greases and other Mobil-branded lubricants, have been designed for the diverse range of demanding operating conditions found in food-processing applications—such as extreme freezing and baking temperatures, frequent high-pressure washdowns and hot, corrosive atmospheres. These Mobil SHC Cibus colorless food machinery lubricants are well-suited for food products destined for many global markets, and are manufactured and approved for use in Halal and Kosher (Parve) food preparation. They also comply with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) planning schedules.

PC Pump Features Open-Throat Design
Moyno, part of the Fluid Management Group of Robbins & Myers, offers the 2000 Model G2 Progressing Cavity Pump. This versatile, high-performance product features an open-throat hopper design (various hopper sizes available), with an auger for positive product feed when handling semi-dry or high-solids-content sludges. It also incorporates Moyno’s crown gear-type universal joint, which the company says is the heaviest-duty drive-train configuration available in the industry. The 2000 Model G2 is capable of accommodating exceptionally high torsional and thrust loads; its patented joint seals effectively protect the gear joints from pumpage contamination.
Additional product features include:
- Fluid-viscosity capabilities up to 1,000,000 cps unassisted
- The ability to pass particles up to 1.5″ in diameter
- Flow rates to 400 gpm and pressures to 350 psi.
- High volumetric and mechanical efficiencies
