Burke Lubricants customer saves 387,840 Pounds annually with SHC 005


Coca Cola Hellenic

Lisburn, Co Down

Northern Ireland



Hellenic’s key machines for bottling Coca Cola and other leading soft drink brands have to work non-stop, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in extreme operating conditions involving hot detergent machine wash-downs, high operating temperatures, and contamination.



Hellenic had tried a variety of competitor NSF H1 food industry greases in the past that had failed to provide good pumpability, water wash out resistance or the high temperature performance required.


Grease line blockages, and the essential machine hot wash-downs had a drastic effect on bearings, resulting in lubricant starvation. Bearing failures resulted in average of sixteen machine stoppages annually, with each episode averaging four hours.

Estimated machine costs per hour of breakdown are as follows:

  • Fitters’ Time - £60 per hour

  • Production losses - £6,000 per hour


Recommendations and Solutions

Burke Lubricants, was contacted by Coca Cola Hellenic engineers to find a suitable lubricant, Mobil SHC Polyrex 005 was proposed due to its:


  • NSF H1 certification – making it suitable for use in the beverage industry NLGI 00 classification – providing excellent pumpability, and preventing line blockages

  • Fully Synthetic grease – high temperature performance, long oil life

  • Excellent water wash-out resistance – grease retained in the bearings preventing lubricant starvation



The versatility and product integrity of Mobil SHC Polyrex 005 enabled Coca Cola Hellenic to standardise a single grade for all their auto-lubricated systems, ensuring correct lubrication, and ultimate component protection preventing unplanned production line shut downs totalling £387,840 annually.
