Australian food grade lubricants awarded international certification

The 100% Australian owned and operated company lubrication manufacturer, Anglomoil, has announced that its Synthetic Food Grade (SFG) lubricants range has been awarded ISO 21469 certification by the globally acclaimed testing and certification organisation, NSF International.

NSF’s ISO 21469 is a specific ANSI-accredited certification for lubricants used in the food industry and, in particular, those which may come into contact with food products (H1). These lubricants are typically used in pumps, mixers, compressors, hydraulics, chain drives and conveyor systems.

The NSF endorsement is recognised by the World Health Organisation. The NSF certification applies to:

  • Anglomoil SFG Gear Oils;
  • Anglomoil SFG Compressor Oils;
  • Anglomoil SFG Hydraulic Oils;
  • Anglomoil WO Hook Oil;
  • Anglomoil Airline Oil;
  • Anglomoil WO Chain Oil;
  • Anglomoil White Oils;
  • Anglomoil Food Machinery Grease and
  • Anglomoil Food Machinery Grease HD.

This diverse range of lubricants is acceptable for use in meat, poultry and other food processing sectors of the industry.

“We have been assessed by NSF throughout the formulation, manufacturing, handling and use of our products and this ISO 21469 certification guarantees to the end user that they only contain safe ingredients and in the rare occurrence of a lubricant coming into contact with a food product there is no harm to the end user”, says Anglomoil Managing Director Michael Croasdale, “Food manufacturers have peace of mind in the knowledge that the Anglomoil range of food grade lubricants adheres to the strictest international standards.”

“We are delighted that the entire range has been certified by NSF. They had already been certified by the Food Safety Authority of New Zealand, National Sanitation Foundation of America and HALAL, the guardian of Moslem food standards. Our range is also approved under the strict Kosher guidelines.”

Mr Croasdale adds,

“This certification is a testimony to our philosophy of only producing high-performance long-life value for money lubricants. This has been a foundation stone of our company since it was opened in 1975. Every one of our products across all industry sectors is a demonstration of our innovation, our extensive understanding of the science of blending and our commitment to only use world-best ingredients.”

In an industry dominated by global brands Anglomoil is a real Aussie success story. From simple beginnings the privately owned enterprise built a state of the art production plant in Sydney in the Eighties and today their products are used across Australia as well as in New Zealand and Asia. They are recognised throughout the lubricant industry as a manufacturer of exceptionally high quality, no-compromise products.
