42 new food-grade lubricants described in brochure from Dow Corning

Dow Corning - EEI : 04 May, 2007  (Company News)
The world
The line of Molykote brand oils is designed to meet virtually every plant lubrication need such as oils for hydraulic systems, compressor and vacuum pumps, gearboxes and chains and a wide variety of machines and components. It includes synthetic and ultra high-purity hydro-cracked mineral oil fluids as well as the company’s traditional offering of specialty lubricant compounds, greases, pastes, anti-friction coatings, and dispersions.

The new Molykote fluids are particularly suited for plant operations in the food and beverage industry due to their resistance to emulsification with water, which causes viscosity degradation that contributes to mechanical wear and premature loss of machine usefulness. Molykote fluids are available in a wide range of viscosities, and are formulated for use in hydraulic, compressor and vacuum pumps; gearboxes, chains; and a wide variety of machines and components. The Molykote brand fluids conform to requirements under H-1 or H-2 designations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and many are kosher approved. In addition, to meet the dramatic temperature variations from freezers to ovens, the product line includes lubricants with operating temperature capabilities ranging from –226°C to 1400°C (-375°F to 2550°F).

Molykote fluids and lubricants are also used in chemical/petrochemical processing, automotive manufacturing, power generation, and the pulp and paper industries as well as a wide variety of maintenance and repair operations in general business and industrial facilities.

The new oils are part of the “Molykote Lubrication Management Program” from Dow Corning, which is designed to reduce overall maintenance costs, extend equipment life, and simplify the purchasing process better than what can be achieved using a mix and match of products and services from different suppliers.

Dow Corning launched the Program in North America last year and is currently introducing it to customers in Europe, South America, Mexico, and Asia. It includes lubrication management software, an Integrated Oil Analysis Service, and local technical service and inventory support through the company’s global distribution network. This combination of products and services makes it possible for Dow Corning to offer the world’s most complete lubrication package available anywhere in the world.

Dow Corning claims six categories of benefits for a typical industrial customer who consolidates with this product and service package:

Better return on capital investment through longer machine lifetime
Improved overall productivity through extended fill intervals
Streamlined inventory through elimination of items with similar properties
Better preventative maintenance through integrated oil analysis
Better equipment performance through selection and quality of lubricantMore effective maintenance management through better informed decision making

The brochure is available in ten different languages, American English, European English, French, Italian, Dutch, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Japanese. For a free brochure visit the company’s Website at

Dow Corning currently offers more than 7,000 products to customers around the world. Dow Corning is a global leader in silicon-based materials with shares equally owned by The Dow Chemical Company and Corning Incorporated. More than half of Dow Corning's sales are outside the United States. Molykote has been a well-known brand for industrial lubrication globally since the 1950s.
