Commercial & Industrial

Commercial and industrial lubricants are specialized lubricating oils and greases designed for use in a wide range of commercial and industrial applications. These lubricants are formulated to meet the specific requirements and operating conditions of various industrial machinery, equipment, and processes. Commercial and industrial applications are more demanding than standard lubricant applications and require specifically formulated base oils and additive packages to give them the qualities they need to be effective. Many construction applications require the lubricants to resist contamination from dirt and other potentially harmful debris that could cause corrosion or pitting.

Commercial & Industrial Features:

Diverse Applications: Commercial and industrial lubricants are used in a diverse range of applications across various industries, including manufacturing, construction, agriculture, mining, power generation, marine, aviation, and more. They lubricate equipment such as pumps, compressors, bearings, gears, hydraulic systems, turbines, chains, slides, and many other mechanical components.

Specialized Formulations: Industrial lubricants are formulated to meet the specific requirements of different types of machinery and equipment. They come in various formulations, each tailored to provide optimal performance under specific operating conditions, such as temperature extremes, high loads, high speeds, and exposure to harsh environments or contaminants.

Extreme Pressure and Anti-Wear Properties: Many industrial applications involve heavy loads, high pressures, and metal-to-metal contact, which can lead to excessive wear and damage to components. Industrial lubricants often contain additives such as extreme pressure and anti-wear agents to provide enhanced protection against wear, scoring, and pitting, especially under severe operating conditions.

Corrosion Protection: Industrial machinery and equipment may be exposed to corrosive environments, moisture, and chemical contaminants, which can lead to corrosion and degradation of metal surfaces. Industrial lubricants often contain corrosion inhibitors and rust preventatives to protect equipment and extend its service life.

High Temperature Stability: Some industrial applications involve high operating temperatures, which can degrade conventional lubricants and reduce their effectiveness. Industrial lubricants are formulated to have excellent thermal stability, allowing them to maintain their viscosity and lubricating properties at elevated temperatures without breaking down or forming harmful deposits.
