The GSA-6000 is a synthetic, superior quality food industry grease which outperforms lithium, aluminum and polyurea base standard greases of the same viscosity.
Characteristics and Benefits
The GSA-6000 unique formulation includes such elements as:
- Overbased calcium sulfonate complex;
- Prolab Antifriction Treatment;
- Superior quality synthetic oil;
- Superior quality adherence agents.
Its exclusive PROLAB formula makes it reach an exceptional level of performance: In all season, it reduces friction, protects against rust, corrosion and oxidation, provides exceptional moisture, wear and load resistance as well as excellent thermal and mechanical stability. Even though the GSA-6000 food grade synthetic grease is classified as NLGI 2, it has pumpability characteristics similar to those of NLGI 0 grade: it is best suited for high rotational speeds (between 3000 and 10 000 rpm).
The GSA-6000 food grade synthetic grease is both polyvalent and economical: it encompasses three NLGI grades, thus allowing for reduced grease inventories and less frequent lubricating jobs and, consequently, less energy and grease consumption.
The GSA-6000 food grade synthetic grease is practical and safe to use: it has approval from NSF (H1 - acceptable as lubricant with incidental food contact) , and also CFIA approved. It contains no contaminants harmful to health or the environment. It is offered in a variety of sizes.
Types of Application
The GSA-6000 food grade synthetic grease is a must for every type of business operating in the food industry.
Directions for Use
Always use GSA-6000 food grade synthetic grease in reference to the equipment manufacturer's manual
Avoid unneeded contact with food during application. Use the minimum required quantity. Whenever performing a grease change, make sure to validate the compatibility of the various greases used (refer to PROLAB's grease compatibility chart).
