VLUBE-3 TABLET PRESS LUBRICATION
Slipstream V-Lube 3 is a synthetic lubricant, especially developed for application to the moving parts on tablet making machines.
V-Lube 3 is formulated from FDA approved ingredients and has USDA H1 approval for lubricants with incidental food contact. It is formulated from synthetic hydrocarbons; it contains no petroleum mineral hydrocarbons and is free from substances listed as hazardous to health in the latest COSHH Regulations.
This product is a saturated, highly branched synthetic of the highest quality and purity. Unlike white mineral oils, derived from crude oil by traditional refining methods, V-Lube 3 is produced by chemical synthesis. This process creates specific molecular structures to cope with the severe shear conditions to which the lubricant is subjected.
V-Lube 3 is used on the upper and lower punch shanks on Manesty, Courtoy, Kilian, Korsch, Jenny, Fette, Horn and Pharmapress tabletting machines where a light fluid is required.
V-Lube 3 will replace the lubricant at present being used, with the additional benefits of total shear stability, reduced wear and superior rheological properties.
