Petro-Canada Lubricants, a Suncor business, today announced the launch of PURITY FG formulated with SynFX, an advanced additive technology designed to provide synthetic-like performance. PURITY FG offers a strategic solution for managers who are looking for ways to increase plant productivity, help reduce downtime and streamline inventory to help save time and money. The PURITY FG with SynFX product line includes gear, hydraulic and compressor fluids, protecting equipment in wide temperature ranges.

“It’s no secret that plant managers often struggle to achieve optimal lubricant performance, while also meeting safety standards and budget constraints,” says Amanda Damen, category portfolio manager, lubricants, Suncor. “By using new PURITY FG with SynFX, managers no longer have to compromise on any of these competing variables. This technological breakthrough will end the price versus performance compromise that plant managers often wrestle with.”

Proven to demonstrate synthetic-like performance:

  • PURITY FG formulated with SynFX resists oxidative breakdown up to two times longer than leading mineral oil based food grade lubricant brands—comparable to synthetic brands in oil life. This level of oxidation resistance provides longer-lasting protection from potential sludge and varnish build-up in equipment.
  • In addition to excellent high-temperature performance, PURITY FG with SynFX offers a pour point that is as much as two times lower than competing conventional food grade lubricants and in the same range as many synthetics—down to as low as -48°C

“Not only do these performance features help to improve the bottom line, increasing productivity and decreasing downtime, they also help operations achieve the highest food safety standards,” says Damen. “All PURITY FG lubricants are NSF H1 or HT1 registered for use for incidental food contact around food processing areas. Beyond this, many of our lubricants are ISO 21469 certified and Petro-Canada Lubricants is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Our products can be easily integrated into Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) programs and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) plans.”

Covering a range of equipment challenges in the food manufacturing industry, PURITY FG with SynFX food grade lubricants is offered in the following products:

  • PURITY FG-X AW Hydraulic Fluid
  • PURITY FG Compressor Fluids
  • PURITY FG EP Gear Fluids

The new PURITY FG products formulated with SynFX are offered alongside Petro-Canada Lubricants’ complete food grade lubricant line, designed to meet the many needs of today’s operations.
