  • Hydraulic or Transformer Oil
  • Industrial Burners
  • Mould Oil to help release products from their moulds
  • Additive in manufactured products like Lubricants, Hydraulic Oil & Transformer Oil

The purity of base oils means that your additive packages can be optimized to meet performance objectives at lower treat rates and reduced cost. Your formulators won’t have to worry about compensating for the quality of the base stock in your finished products. You have more freedom in new product development. Our Base oils can improve the performance of your finished engine oils and other lubricants. Better viscosity control and reduced volatility help cut lubricant consumption and provide fuel economy benefits. This also enhances cold start operation. Your customers can expect improved equipment protection and extended lubricant life due to superior oxidation and thermal stability.

Do You Know ?

A barrel of crude oil contains roughly 42 gallons. Of that, only 0.5 gallons, or 1 – 2 percent of the barrel, is suitable for lubricants. The rest is used for gasoline (19.5 gallons), diesel and home heating oil (diesel and home heating oil), and other byproducts

Types of Base Oil:

There are several types of base oils, including:

Mineral Base Oil: This is the most commonly used type of base oil, which is derived from crude oil through refining processes. Mineral base oils are generally affordable and provide good lubrication properties.

Synthetic Base Oil: These base oils are artificially made through chemical reactions and do not come from crude oil. They offer excellent lubrication properties and can withstand high temperatures and pressures.

Vegetable Base Oil: These oils are derived from natural vegetable sources such as rapeseed, sunflower, and castor oil. They are environmentally friendly and can be used in applications such as food processing and cosmetics.

Bio-Based Base Oil: These oils are made from renewable sources such as plant-based materials or animal fats. They are eco-friendly and have low environmental impact.

Group III Base Oil: These oils are made from severely refined mineral oils, which are processed to remove impurities and improve their lubrication properties. They offer improved performance compared to traditional mineral oils and are often used in high-performance engines.

Use of Base Oil:

Base oils are used as a primary component in the formulation of lubricants. Lubricants are used to reduce friction and wear between moving parts in machinery and engines, which can increase their efficiency and lifespan. Base oils are blended with various additives to form different types of lubricants suitable for different applications, such as:

Automotive lubricants: Base oils are used in the formulation of engine oils, transmission fluids, and gear oils for cars, trucks, and other vehicles.

Industrial lubricants: Base oils are used in the formulation of hydraulic fluids, compressor oils, and industrial gear oils used in various industrial applications.

Marine lubricants: Base oils are used in the formulation of marine engine oils, gear oils, and hydraulic fluids for use in marine equipment.

Aerospace lubricants: Base oils are used in the formulation of aviation lubricants, such as jet engine oils, hydraulic fluids, and landing gear greases.

Metalworking fluids: Base oils are used in the formulation of metalworking fluids, such as cutting oils and coolants, used in manufacturing processes such as machining and metal forming.

Overall, base oils play a critical role in the performance and lifespan of lubricants used in various applications, helping to reduce friction, wear, and heat buildup, and to protect machinery and engines from damage.
