Tetra Pak, Vernon Hills, Ill., launched a dry lubrication kit for packaging line conveyor belts and distribution equipment.

The new solution helps customers reduce water and electricity consumption and lower the man-hours required for machine maintenance.

​With this kit, the process does not require the use of water, just a small pea-sized drop of food-grade oil directly added to the conveyor belt to reduce friction with the package. This kit also is said to save an average of 35,000 liters of water per filling line each year.

This fully automated system ensures precision, and includes the application systems, lubricant and installation.
