Madison Chemical introduces Super Can Lube KW conveyor lubricant for food processing applications. Unlike silicone emulsion products, Super Can Lube KW contains no water and does not require water for dilution, so it reduces the risk of microbial growth while reducing belt drag. This completely waterless formulation keeps dry areas dry, can be used in areas with or without floor drains, and it greatly reduces effluent emissions. It provides excellent lubricity without the sticky or gummy residue that are common with silicone emulsion lubricants, and is easily cleaned with water.

Super Can Lube KW is acceptable for use in food and beverage plants as an H1 lubricant with incidental contact, and is well suited for use as a protective anti-rust film, as a release agent on gaskets or seals of tank enclosures, and as a lubricant for machine parts and equipment in locations where there is exposure of the lubricated part to food. It is an ideal lubricant for conveyors where smooth transition of bottles, cans, containers, and other food and beverage processing applications is necessary.  

A clear liquid with a specific gravity of 1.12, Super Can Lube KW is used at full strength and applied by drip, dip, roller, spray, or similar suitable methods. Typical feed rate is 50 to 500 ml/hr, depending upon system.
