Haynes Spray is a light duty sanitary lubricant for all sanitary machine parts cleaned daily. It contains FDA- and USDA-approved ingredients, and it is odorless, tasteless and non-toxic.
U.S.P. (United States Pharmaceutical Standards) Liquid Petrolatum Spray ensures that it can be used safely as a lubricant for food processing equipment when used in compliance with existing food additive regulation. Ingredients are approved additives and can be safely utilized as a lubricant for food processing equipment. Haynes Spray contains no animal or vegetable fats – it is absolutely neutral. It will not turn rancid, contaminate or taint when in contact with food products.
Spraying as a method of application eliminates the danger of contamination. Parts already sanitized stay that way, with this sanitary spray.

Haynes Lubri-Film is a heavy duty sanitary lubricant with high load bearing, low friction properties. All ingredients are FDA and USDA approved for incidental food contact.
Daily lubrication provides a protective coating to metal parts. A thin film will retain effectiveness on bearings, slides and other lubricated surfaces despite moisture. By staying on the work area, corrosion of metal is minimized.
Temperature tolerances range from -15°F to 210°F. For wet or dry conditions, Haynes Lubri-Film is highly resistant to separation or bleed. It will not dry or gum.
Processing of the lubricant is carefully controlled at the plant. This guarantees the same high quality found in all Haynes products.
Packaged in spray, tube, cartridge, 25 lb. pails, or 400 lb. drums for your convenience.
For all sanitary machine parts requiring daily lubrication, including:
- Positive Pumps
- Plug Valves
- Slicer, Shake, and Soft Serve Machines

Recording Pens and Recording Ink
Eliminate your circular recorder inking problems! It replaces V-pens, Beta pens, Bucket pens, Pot pens, and makes old-fashioned capillary tube type systems obsolete. The self-contained ink flow means:
- No down time
- No maintenance
- No mess
- No skipping or blotting
Retrofitted to these flat arm recorders: Barton, Mercury, Aarco, Taylor full scope recorder, Martin-Decker, Foxboro, American Metter, Acco-Bristol, and other flat-arm circular recorders.
Convenient: After four months of daily average use, just remove the pen and slide on a new one.
Inexpensive: Each fiber-tipped pen writes 600 revolutions or 1600 feet on orifice meter charts cleanly, consistently, and reliably.
Reliable: Will not fail prior to ink running out. Visible warning before ink exhaustion – line begins to diminish in intensity a few days prior to ink exhaustion. Not affected by dust or vibration. Dust does not clog system.
Economical: 1. Lower inventory – One ink satisfies all temperature and humidity conditions. Records efficiently even in extreme temperatures (-30°F to 140°F) and extreme humidities. 2. No maintenance required – simply replace pen when it no longer marks properly. 3. Three year shelf life guaranteed.
