Always call around for the cheapest price on parts. They do vary and don't forget shipping charges!
The lubricant I use is made by Permatex, Loctite Division. It is called ViperLube® Item #36784 .42 oz.tube. Any industrial supply house should carry the item. Contact Loctite for a distributor in your area. If you can't get it, any U.S.D.A approved lubricant for food contact (H1) would be O.K. I previously recommended using Super Lube, it is no longer being made by Loctite. ViperLube has replaced it.
There is another lubricant that many food service web sites sell. It is called Haynes Lubri-Film Plus. It is also a H1 FDA approved lubricant for contact with food. It comes in a 4 oz. tube and sells for approx. $2.50 online.
Sealant for Heating Elements with Pressure Stats This sealant is made by Loctite. It is called Gasket Eliminator 515 Sealant. It is used under the flange of the brass tube that goes to the heating element. The other end of the tube goes to the pressure stat. A small tube costs roughly $11. It can be found on the Internet or you can buy it from Grainger if you qualify.
