4025 QUINPLEX® Food Machinery Lubricant Maple Leaf Pork, Brandon, MB, Canada Jarvis Brisket Saws CUSTOMER PROFILE Maple Leaf Foods Inc. is a leading, global food processing company. Based in Toronto, Canada, Maple Leaf employs approximately 15,000 people at operations across Canada, in the United States, Europe and Asia and reported sales of $4.8 billion in 2001. Maple Leaf is a publicly traded company, common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "MFI". The company has many plants across Canada including Canada’s largest pork facility, located in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. Maple Leaf has been processing hogs at the Brandon facility since August 31, 1999. The Brandon plant is a world-class, technologically advanced facility. It is the company’s flagship pork processing operation and is one of the largest in North America, processing approximately 45,000 hogs per week. This location has been an LE customer since 2001. APPLICATION Jarvis Brisket Saws are used to cut sections of the pork. AREA OF CONCERN The previous food grade grease was emulsifying with water and the saws were being repaired on a daily basis. LE SOLUTION Lubrication Engineers 4025 QUINPLEX Food Machinery Lubricant was recommended. It does not emulsify with water and also provides greater wear protection, oxidation stability, resistance to water spray off, and has superior EP load carrying capability than the previous grease. 4025 QUINPLEX is USDA authorized and rated H1 for food and beverage equipment, it is also CFIA approved (n1) by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency for incidental food contact. CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS Since switching to 4025 QUINPLEX, Maple Leaf has saved a significant amount per week on repairs to their Jarvis Brisket Saws in parts alone. There have been additional savings in labor and downtime. When the saws are opened up for inspection, they no longer contain metal filings. 4025 QUINPLEX is now used throughout the plant and since it does not wash out of bearings, grease consumption has been reduced in half.ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS USED 605 ALMASOL® Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant is used in gearboxes. 4046 QUINPLEX® Synthetic Food Grade Oil is used on the quick chill chain. 4058 QUINPLEX® H1 Penetrating Oil & Lubricant is used on the quick chill chain. 4059 H1 QUINPLEX® Penetrating Oil & Lubricant is used as a penetrating oil. 4140 QUINPLEX® White Gear Lubricant is used on the Cryovac chains. 9920 SYNOLEC® Gear Lubricant is used in gearboxes in the freezer.
