What is Industrial Oil?

Industrial lubricants are basically defined as compounds like fluids, greases and oils. They are used in order to lessen wear and tear of materials while reducing binding and friction. In some extreme cases, they may also prevent or lessen electrical resistivity while it increases thermal conduction. Those products are ideal because they can prevent corrosion in both the inner and outer surfaces where they are applied.

Industrial oils help the necessary equipment to run smoothly, even in the most difficult environments, and for long periods of time insuring the quality, sustainability and giving you improved reliability.
Another valuable quality of industrial lubricants which is highly utilized is ability to carry thermal energy for various applications such as metal working, machine cooling and process heating. We can summarize the industrial functions as;

  • Lubrication: Control of friction and wear by reducing friction between surfaces in mutual contact.
  • Heat Transfer: To cool the moving parts and surfaces with heat transfer.
  • Sealing: Prevent of leakage between moving parts.
  • Surface Protection: Lubrication film supply a surface protection.
  • Shock Absorber: Reduce and eliminate the shocks from mechanical force on moving or fixed parts.
  • Mass Transfer: Able to suspend and carry the particles from wear fuel decomposition, oil, sulfur and dust and so on.
  • Power Transfer and Supply Pressure: Most important functions in hydraulic oils.

Different Types of Industrial Oil

Industrial oils include different types of oils ranging from hydraulic oils, gear oils, compressor oils, long-life turbine oils, cylinder oils, refrigeration oils, metal working fluids, marine oils, wire drawing compounds, transmission fluids, glass mold oils, mold release oils, quenching oils, thermic fluids, to specialty Industrial Oils for specific applications meeting the latest BIS and International Standard Specifications.

Properties of Industrial Oil

  1. Viscosity: Viscosity is the degree to which the flow resistance and/or fluid internal friction being measured. Viscosity changes with temperature and it is usually being measured at 40ºC or 100ºC.
  2. Viscosity Index (VI): Viscosity index shows the relative magnitude of viscosity changes with temperature. The higher VI oils the lesser change in viscosity with temperature.
  3. Pour Point (P.P.): Pour point is the temperature at which a lubricant becomes semi solid and loses its flow characteristics.
  4. Flash Point (F.P.): Flash point is the lowest temperature at which vapors of a lubricant will ignite momentarily on application of a flame under specified conditions.
  5. Fire Point: Fire point is the lowest temperature at which vapors of a lubricant will ignite and it will go on. Fire point is usually 15ºC higher than the flash point.
  6. Density: Is the mass of liquid per unit of volume of a substance at 15ºC.
