Ecolab Introduces DryExx GF
New Lubricant For Bottling Plants Cuts Water Use by 80 Percent

May 02, 2011

ZURICH, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ecolab Inc. today introduced DryExx® GF, a new conveyor lubricant specifically designed for use with glass bottles on steel conveyor belts. DryExx GF saves up to 80 percent of the water used when compared to traditional wet lubricants but still achieves the highest possible hygiene levels and does not compromise efficiency.

The innovative DryExx GF formula contains an active lubricating substance which creates a protective film on the belts. This results in reduced friction, less abrasion and consequently eliminates the need to use large amounts of water to continually wash any abrasion off the belts.

"The introduction of DryExx GF once again demonstrates Ecolab's leadership in the field of innovative conveyor lubrication technologies and our focus on helping our customers run more sustainable operations," said Andreas Weilinghoff, general manager of Ecolab Food & Beverage in Europe. "The use of dry lubricants combines the highest possible water savings with hygienic and efficient technology — all cornerstone features of Ecolab's products within this industry."

With sales of $6 billion and more than 26,000 associates, Ecolab Inc. (NYSE: ECL) is the global leader in cleaning, sanitizing, food safety and infection prevention products and services. Ecolab delivers comprehensive programs and services to foodservice, food and beverage processing, healthcare, and hospitality markets in more than 160 countries.
