Lubricants for the Sugar Mill Industry

Continuity of production is the most vital asset in the sugar production industry. Since the sugar production is related to harvesting campaigns, a trouble-free 24-hour operation during the harvest period is something all production plants are looking for.

Matrix Specialty Lubricants offers a range of food grade and non-food grade lubricants and services for this industry which warrants not only trouble-free operation but saves money on lifetime of the equipment and maintenance.

The Matrix Foodmax® range is NSF, Kosher, and Halal approved

Challenges and Solutions in Sugar Mills



Demand for the use of Food Grade Lubricants (nontoxic) in the entire process
Matrix Specialty Lubricants offers a complete Foodmax® product range for the entire sugar industry
Cost saving
Using Foodmax® products can increase the lifetime of lubricants 4 to 5 times longer compared to conventional lubricants, which results in lower lubricants consumption
The demand of MOSH and MOAH free products
Foodmax® lubricants do not contain bad MOSH and MOAH, resulting in no MOSH & MOAH issues
Energy saving & Lower carbon footprint
By using Foodmax® products you lower the carbon footprint and the energy consumption due to the technology we use in our Foodmax® products
Bearings will break and the grease will leak out of the bearing (due to sugar water)
Foodmax® Grease Calcium Sulfonate Greases are extremely resistance against sugar water contamination, which sets them apart from most competitor greases that tend to leak out of bearings
Water & Moisture in Gearboxes
Foodmax® Gear (PAO) oils have excellent water separation properties. Standard mineral oils “emulsify” with water causing corrosion and viscosity issues
Strict OEM Requirements
A pro-active and knowledge-based approach of OEM’s by Matrix Specialty Lubricants
Numerous amounts of lubrication points
High performance standards of Foodmax® lubricants allow standardization and rationalization of your current lubricants portfolio by using advanced technology
Manufacturing of sugar is a seasonal phenomenon with a short crushing season normally from 4 / 7 months in a year. Equipment must run reliably, standstills are fatal
Maintenance and high-performance lubricants are crucial
