What are the applications of industrial oil?
- 2018-09-29-

China's current engine oil consumption accounts for 4045 of the lubricant production , and the rest is industrial oil . It can be seen that industrial oil accounts for a large proportion in China, but in research and production and use, people tend to pay more attention to the quality and application of engine oil, while ignoring industrial oil, resulting in improper selection of lubricants in many occasions, not paying attention to oil products. The quality, in-use monitoring and timely oil change, resulting in equipment failure, shortened service life, increased production costs, and even affect production. Therefore, Shanghai Zhuoli Lubrication Co., Ltd. feels that it is necessary to pay attention to the quality of industrial oil, rational application and monitoring, and understand the development trend of industrial oil, which is an important link to improve the application level of lubricating oil and promote industrial production.

1. The varieties and application characteristics of industrial oils in industrial production

Due to the different industries, the variety of production and the mechanical equipment used are different. Therefore, industrial oils have a wide range of applications and many varieties. According to the relevant product classification and according to the application, industrial oils include all-loss system oil, mold release oil industrial gear oil, compressor oil, refrigerator and vacuum pump oil, spindle bearing and clutch oil guide oil, etc. It has a wide range of applications and different usage conditions, so it is different from engine oil in application.

Since industrial oils account for a proportion of the cost of finished products, users pay more attention to price.

Industrial oil has a longer service life. Industrial oils require a longer service life than engine oils. Engine oil requires thousands of kilometers to tens of thousands of kilometers. For about half a year to one year, industrial oil generally requires a service life of more than one year, and some require two years. In some gearboxes for plastic stretching machines, the gear oil that is loaded when the gearbox is manufactured cannot be discharged, so the user requires that the lubricating oil used has a high quality and stable quality and a long service life.

The performance requirements of industrial oils are ever-changing.

Due to the different lubrication points of industrial equipment, the conditions of use vary widely, and some equipment also has special performance requirements. For example, the mechanical equipment of the steel and automobile manufacturing industries is required to work under very severe conditions. It is not required to have high temperature resistance and oils that are close to the fire source; the oil used in the refrigeration compressors of civilian products such as refrigerators and air conditioners is not only used. Low temperature performance is required, and compatibility with refrigerant is required. Aerospace and nuclear industry equipment require lubricating oil to withstand high vacuum and radiation resistance; electrical oil requires insulation and electrical performance requirements; food industry machinery The lubricant is first required to be non-toxic. Therefore, when selecting industrial oil types, it is necessary to fully consider the functional conditions and operating environment of the equipment. The correct selection of industrial oil varieties is an important measure to ensure normal production and extend the service life of equipment.

Engaged in research and development and application research of lubricant products.

Industrial oils have many special properties that require special assessment methods. In addition to the physical and chemical performance requirements, most industrial oils have special performance requirements according to the requirements of use, so there are special evaluation methods in the specifications. Here, Shanghai Zhuoli Lubrication Co., Ltd. gives an example. For example, hydraulic rail oil requires the determination of the stick-slip characteristics of the oil to evaluate the difference in the static friction coefficient of the rail oil. The better the anti-sticking property of the rail oil, the better the anti-crawling performance of the device on the guide rail.
