Oxygen Safe Lubricants
It’s a simple fact that lubricants are the most vulnerable and easily ignited component in any high pressure system. The simple solution is choosing the right lubricant. CHRISTO-LUBE® fully fluorinated lubricants are ideal for use in systems where non-reactivity with harsh chemicals including strong acids and oxidizers, fuels, solvents, etc is an important factor.
Safety built in – CHRISTO-LUBE® oxygen compatible lubricants are chemically as well as biologically inert, non-toxic, non-flammable and have no fire or flash point which results in them being the safest lubricants for use in medical / industrial gas and SCUBA applications
Plastic / Elastomer Compatibility – CHRISTO-LUBE® oxygen compatible greases and oils have excellent compatibility with plastics and elastomers and have minimal effect on weight, volume, elongation and tensile properties. The performance of the plastic and/or elastomer is therefore not negatively impacted by the lubricant. For a partial list of plastic / elastomer compatibility please click here.
Food Grade – The majority of the CHRISTO-LUBE® lubricants offered into the oxygen service industry have been submitted to the National Sanitary Foundation (NSF) and approved as an H-1 lubricant. This certifies that the lubricants are accepted for use in or around food processing areas with potential for incidental food contact. The NSF Nonfood Compounds Registration Program is a continuation of the USDA product approval and listing program, which is based on meeting regulatory requirements including FDA 21 CFR.
