  • Wheeling, IL, July 25, 2018– Penray, Inc. has introduced a specialty machine oil for the food transportation and processing industries. Penray's new 4571 Machine Oil will prove to be valuable for all of those involved in transporting, processing, and storing food products.

    This specialty lubricant from Penray is blended specifically for the food transportation, service and storage markets. This machine oil is composed of liquid petrolatum USP and propellant, and is especially well-suited for use in food transport, processing and dairy equipment. It also fully complies with FDA regulations, CFR Title 21, paragraphs 172.878 and 178.3620. Once applied, it leaves a pure food grade oil film.

    Penray Machine Oil has features that make it an excellent choice for a wide variety of applications. It is suitable for use in temperatures from zero degrees F to 450 degrees F, making it effective for use in both refrigerated and high temperature environments. It provides long-lasting lubrication, and protects against rust, oxidation and wear.

    This aerosol product is ideal for use on lift gates, fork lifts,  rollers, conveyors, hinges, latches, bearings, and many other places where access is limited and where an aerosol product provides better access than direct manual application. It is an excellent choice for food handling industries such as meat packing and poultry processing, breweries, dairies, bakeries, and in grocery stores and supermarkets. 

     

    Explains Greg Mixon, Director of Sales-Heavy Duty Divisionfor Penray, "We have a long history of providing specialty lubricants for industry and transportation markets. This product meets the special needs and demands of the food transportation and foodservice industries."

    Continues Penray's Mixon, "For nearly 70 years Penray has provided specialty chemicals and functional fluids for the automotive, heavy duty and marine aftermarkets. Food grade lubricants are a great addition to our line-up to meet our customers' needs in the food transportation, service and processing markets.

  • Wheeling, IL, January 16, 2018– Electrical connectors must often perform their duties in hostile environments. Such harsh conditions are common when hitching a vehicle to a trailer such as a boat trailer or camper, and are especially common in the trucking industry, where connections are made between tractors and trailers, or in other trucking configurations. Other areas where electrical connections are subjected to water and road debris include RVs, ATVs, other off-road vehicles, and construction vehicles and equipment.

    The biggest enemies of electrical connections are water and corrosive chemicals. That's why Penray has introduced their innovative aerosol Connector Seal 7015. The product is designed to spray onto assembled electrical connectors and form a flexible yet durable protective seal that keeps out water, road salt, and other debris, while protecting the electrical connectors within. It is weather-proof and offers a quick set-up to dry time Think of it as "plastic wrap in a can."

    Penray Connector Seal is a crystal clear coating that effectively seals all kinds of electrical connections. It conforms to any shape or size connection and, being clear, does not obstruct the ability to view the color-coding of electrical wires. It is also useful for sealing taillights and marker lights on boats and boat trailers. It is fully compatible with all common wiring, connectors, and other electrical components, and is easily removed if connectors need to be replaced.This is not paint, and is not intended for use on body panels; rather it is specifically formulated to insulate and protect electrical connections, keeping contaminants out and electrical connections dry.

    Penray chemists in the U.S. carefully crafted this formula to resist temperatures and environments up to 250 degrees F, so the product will withstand the heat generated by electrical connections with high current draw. Apply to a clean, dry surface and in just seconds it forms a clear protective film of approximately 0.005-0.010" -- thick enough to afford excellent protection against the elements, yet thin enough to be disassembled and removed easily.

    Bill Nonnamaker, Sr. VP Sales & Marketing for Penray, explains the characteristics and benefits of this exciting new product. ”It is all too common to see trailers, RVs, and even medium- and large-size trucks with headlights or running lights not illuminated. Faulty electrical connections are usually to blame."

    Adds the Penray spokesman, "Technicians often use dielectric grease to help protect such connections, but that product is only helpful in the immediate vicinity of the metal connectors. Our innovative new Connector Seal completely encapsulates the entire connector assembly, so that no moisture or debris can enter. So it can be used as a supplement to, or in lieu of, dielectric grease." 

    Specific benefits include ease of use, complete encapsulization, crystal clear appearance, durability, and ease of removal. Penray Connector Seal is fast-drying, 50-state compliant, and available in 10-ounce aerosol cans.
