PURITY Food Grade (FG2) Grease with MICROL™ MAX


PURITY™ FG2 with MICROL MAX is an advanced food grade grease specially formulated to deliver excellent performance and food grade purity under the highly demanding conditions of food processing operations.

PURITY FG2 with MICROL MAX contains an antimicrobial preservative to protect the lubricant from deterioration, fouling and odour caused by microorganisms. This helps to ensure the lubricant continues to operate as designed despite harsh operating conditions.


PURITY FG2 with MICROL MAX has the required industry credentials and fits perfectly in HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) plans.

Features & Benefits

  • Excellent resistance to lubricant breakdown in harsh operating environments

    • Maintains consistency and lubrication in the presence of food acids, juices and by-products​

    • Does not run from bearings under steam cleaning

    • Highly resistant to water washout, water jet spray, and most sterilizing chemicals used in cleaning

  • Prevents bearing, gear and equipment damage in moist or wet operations

    • Will not run from bearings near ovens​

    • Pumpable at relatively low temperatures

    • Ideal for moderately loaded bearings operating under wide temperature swings

  • Better protection of gears, bearings and equipment under moderate shock loading

    • Prevents seizure, scuffing and spalling under shock loading conditions​

  • Long-term equipment protection from rust and corrosion

  • White, non-staining performance

    • Easy to spot excess grease squeezing out of failing seals​

    • Does not stain clothing, wood or porous materials

    • Wipes up easily and effectively in the event of incidental contact with food products or packaging

  • Contains an antimicrobial preservative to inhibit product degradation

    • The antimicrobial agent provides continuous antimicrobial product protection to protect the lubricant against microbes that can cause product degradation​

    • Antimicrobial product protection is not a substitute for normal plant cleanliness practices


PURITY FG2 with MICROL MAX Grease is specially formulated for the food industry, but performs equally well in these applications:

  • Sleeve and anti-friction bearings, slides and guides

  • Lumber and pulp/paper machinery where staining or contamination is a concern

  • Textile machinery bearings

Zone Of Inhibition Test

The Zone of Inhibition is the area surrounding the grease plug where there is no growth of microbes.

  • The test was modeled after those performed in the pharmaceutical industry

  • The plugs on the right show 2 different competitive food grade machinery greases and the plugs on the left show PURITY FG2 with MICROL MAX

  • As demonstrated, both images show a halo surrounding the plug on the left, which is the Zone of Inhibition

  • The test indicated that the calcium sulphonate and polyurea greases were not able to produce a Zone of Inhibition
