Industrial Lubrication
What Are Lubricants?

Definition Lubricant is a substance which is used to control (more often to reduce) friction and wear of the surfaces in a contact of the bodies in relative motion [1]. Depending on its nature, lubricants […]

Low Oil Pressure

The lubricating oil inside the engine will ensure that all moving parts inside the engine are properly lubricated and safe. When the oil flows through the open spaces within your engine, pressure builds up. This […]


What is a viscometer? Viscosity is the resistance experienced by the liquid in motion. A high-viscosity (thick) liquid flows slower than a low-viscosity (thin) liquid. This can be seen by comparing the speed of oil […]


It is said that a contact operates under “starvation conditions” when an increase of oil supply at the contact would result in an increase of the film thickness at the contact. In other words, when […]

Formulation The main use of lubricants in motor vehicles as well as in industrial machinery is to reduce friction and wear from mechanical contact and heat. Friction is the force that opposes movement on two […]
