What are industrial-use lubricating oils?

Lubricating oils are high-performance substances that reduce mechanical friction and wear when used in suitable composition, similar to lubricating greases. From a purely chemical perspective, lubricating oils are mixtures that basically consists of two components:

  • Base oil component: This can be a base oil or a mixture of different base oils, depending on the desired characteristics.
  • Individual additives: The number and choice of additives varies, depending on the desired characteristics of the lubricating oil.

Benefits of oil lubrication

Minimisation of friction and wear: lubricating oils form a stable fluid film that protects the surfaces of friction bodies.

Removal of heat (cooling): the correct lubricating oil can easily remove the friction heat occurring in the operation of your machines. An effective lubricating oil has only a slight tendency to decomposition under thermal load, allowing sustained action.

Effective lubrication of poorly accessible points: lubricating oils have good flow characteristics (viscosity). This means they can also reach poorly accessible lubrication points, for example in chains.

Advantageous behaviour with residues: a special feature of effective lubricating oils is that they can dissolve contaminants resulting from high temperatures and heavy loads. Lubricating oils with a low inherent tendency to residue formation are optimal in such cases.
