Advantages of industrial lubricants

If you want to increase the efficiency and performance of your industrial machinery and equipment, the proper use of lubricants is vital. Fluids used in industrial applications are formulated to prevent any damage or problems caused by breakdowns, prolong service intervals, increase machine uptime, increase productivity, and ensure greater operational reliability. With the right lubricant, you can expect to take your equipment efficiency to the next level as well as optimize its performance. Lubricants are also designed for long-term protection and to prevent equipment failure and mechanical failure due to severe working conditions, harsh environments, extreme temperatures, heavy and impact loads, high pressure, corrosion and oxidation. With good protection of your machines throughout the year, lubricants reduce downtime and even extend its service life. Having equipment that works properly all year round reduces operating costs and thus total cost of ownership (TCO). This will increase the efficiency of your operations, increase profitability and ultimately grow your business. 

Types of industrial lubricants

Industrial lubricants can be divided into two main categories based on their unique properties and applications – grease and oil, greases should be the lubricant of your choice whenever you notice a leak that needs to be sealed, especially if it is in a highly polluted environment, as it is excellent for leak control. Grease is also easier to use and is recommended for all parts of machinery and equipment that are difficult to access. In addition, greases are great for reducing noise, working in extreme conditions and lubricating worn-out cars. On the other hand, industrial thermal oils are great when you need to lubricate and cool your machines at the same time. Oils have a unique heat transfer property – heat is transferred from one body of oil to another and then pumped out through a heat exchanger. In addition, the oils are easier to clean and easily penetrate the surface of the porous metal, which creates a seamless application.
