RS adds food grade maintenance line

October 2019 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

RS Components has launched a new range of food grade maintenance products for use in the food processing and catering sector. All RS Pro food grade products are registered with the NSF (National Sanitisation Foundation), an international public health and safety organisation, demonstrating risk reduction compliance.


The handling, preparation, processing and packaging of food products require machinery with moving parts that come into contact with foodstuffs. Keeping this equipment clean and lubricated involves the use of non-food chemical products. NSF certification ensures that such products present a significantly lowered risk to health, and, in conjunction with a robust HACCP assessment, may effectively eliminate risk of foodstuff contamination when used appropriately.

RS Pro Chain Oil is formulated with PTFE and foams on application to cling to chains and penetrate deep into links, providing long lasting lubrication and corrosion resistance. It is certified as NSF H1 (lubricants suitable for use with incidental food contact).

RS Pro Foam Cleaner is used to remove general grime and soiling from machinery. It is a stable foam that clings to vertical surfaces without dripping. It is safe for use on plastics, is biodegradable, and is certified as NSF category A1 (general cleaner for use in all areas).

RS Pro Solvent Cleaner is a heavy-duty solvent with a powerful spray action and good wetting properties for difficult degreasing applications. It evaporates quickly leaving zero residue. It is certified as NSF A8, (degreaser/carbon remover for use in all areas) and K1 (cleaner/degreaser for use in non-food-processing areas).

RS Pro Belt Spray (NSF H1) is an adhesive belt lubricant that improves grip on drive belts, reducing squeak and prolonging belt life. A tacky lubricating film increases pulling power and prevents belt slip.

RS Pro Penetrating Spray (NSF H1) is a fast acting penetrating oil that helps to remove seized fasteners without damaging the head or thread.
