Drakeol® Mineral Oil

The baking industry requires a highly refined white mineral oil to function as a release agent in various types of process equipment. A colorless, odorless, tasteless white mineral oil must be used in dough handling machinery where the oil comes in contact with the dough.

Multi-pocket, high-capacity dough dividers, and roll or bun machines require a white mineral oil which is free from other oils or adulterants, and free or nearly free from fluorescence. The application of oil to the pockets, hopper, chutes or knives of a dough divider and on roll machines serves the dual purpose of preventing adhesion of the dough and inhibiting rust formation.

Drakeol products 7, 9, 10 & 21 are low viscosity oils and great for bread divider oil, bun machine oil, divider oil, blade
lubricants, rust preventatives, and simple release agents
