FORT WORTH, Texas, USA  28 Sep 2005 - Lubrication Engineers Inc (LE) is pleased to announce that their market-leading QUINPLEX® range of H1 food grade ‘white’ greases, LE4023, LE4024 & LE4025 Food Machinery Lubricants (QFML) , have been re-launched with a series of performance improvements & ‘enhancements’. The crucial component of these H1 greases is still LE’s exclusive and proprietary additive QUINPLEX®, which improves the greases’ water resistance, tackiness (for adherence), cohesion, and finally by forming an outstanding barrier against rust & corrosion. The most significant ‘enhancement’ is an increase of the Timken OK Load ASTM D-2509 – where these QUINPLEX® ‘white’ greases now carry a 50lbs load. Other enhancements include the use of synthetic & mineral H1 base stocks, higher dropping point for improved high temperature performance and greater water spray off resistance than the already excellent value of the previous QUINPLEX® greases. In comparative tests versus similar competitive products, QUINPLEX® outperformed all others.

It is well known that the food industry consistently provides some of the harshest environmental conditions for machinery. These LE enhancements mean the food industry can now expect a more superior performance from LE QUINPLEX® Food Machinery Lubricants in the difficult environments that plague food processing plants. These NSF registered / USDA Authorised H1 heavy duty, semi-synthetic lubricants will not wash out, pound out or melt & run under these severe conditions.  

The enhanced QUINPLEX® Food Machinery Lubricants undertook a series of four ASTM tests against seven competitive NLGI-2 products and produced outstanding performance results:
Timken OK Load ASTM D-2509   QFML’s 50lbs load is 30lbs heavier than competitors
Resistance to Water Spray Off ASTM D-4049 QFML resists water spray off loss over 3 times better
Oxidation Stability, PDSC, ASTM D-5483 QFML has oxidation stability that is 4 times better
Load Wear Index (LWI) ASTM D-2596  QFML has LWI that is 22.7% higher than competitors

They are white, water resistant, combat high temperatures, cling to metal, are rust & corrosion inhibited & mechanically stable. They now also provide the most extreme pressure performance available for food grade greases. QUINPLEX’s® even greater resistance to water washout is significant as it eliminates corrosion related failures of the bearings; often the most common cause of failure. The increased adhesiveness results in much less grease being used as it will stay where it is put, reducing the amount that needs to be added. Food plants generally only use a quarter of the amount of grease that was used before QUINPLEX® was introduced.

QUINPLEX® Food Machinery Lubricants are recommended for use in bakeries, bottling plants, dairies, canneries, hospitals , meat packing plants, frozen food & other food processing plants. Grease-lubricated applications in these industries include: blenders, slicers, conveyors, knives, food carts, filling machines etc

 “For many years, QUINPLEX® has consistently provided outstanding lubrication for food processing machinery worldwide. Our latest enhancements to an already very successful product line means that LE now has the only true EP food grade grease available. We are excited about the increased commercial advantages these new products will contribute to our valued customers,” commented Jeff Turner, Vice President Lubrication Engineers Inc.
