Flushing Agent

Food Grade Flushing Agent #287 is a non-toxic, non-drying, anti-wear flushing and cleaning lubricant that can be used to clean and flush all types of processing and packaging equipment in food, beverage, feed, and pharmaceutical processing plants where there is a possibility of incidental contact with food, foodstuffs, beverages, pharmaceuticals and drinking water, or potable water.

Food Grade Flushing Agent can also be used in applications where a switch from a H-2 to an H-1 food grade product is required.

Food Grade Flushing Agent is a petroleum hydrocarbon based fluid that is blended from ingredients that comply with the requirements of the United States Code of Federal Regulations 21CFR 178.3570, 178.3620(b), and 573.680 of the United States Food and Drug Administration’s Regulations. Food Grade Flushing Agent is fully compatible with petroleum based lubricants such as USP White Mineral Oils, Technical White Oils, Paraffinic or Naphthenic based mineral oils and synthetic based fluids such as Polyalphaolefins (PAO), Synthetic Hydrocarbon based, Polyol Ester and Diester based fluids. Food Grade Flushing Agent is also compatible with seals and elastomeric materials, paints and coatings which are known to be compatible with petroleum based lubricants.


Food Grade Flushing Agent can be used along with the existing lubricant in order to lean and flush bearings, gear cases, hydraulic systems, chains, airlines, pneumatic tools and other type of equipment of carbon and varnish deposits, debris, sludge, dirt, etc, without teardown and dismantling of the equipment. This results less downtime and savings in labor costs. While Food Grade Flushing Agent has excellent cleaning and load carrying capabilities it should always be used along with the existing lubricant at the recommended treatment levels for flushing and cleansing.
