In cooperation with the world’s most famous manufacturers of base oils and additives, we produce all types of motor and industrial oils of the latest generation, with recommendations for use from the most famous European manufacturers of vehicles, agricultural machinery, hydraulics, gearboxes, and other equipment for modern industrial systems.
Lubricating oils are liquid tribological agents of various general and working characteristics. They are produced from mineral or synthetic base oils of different physical and chemical characteristics and additives with different functions. The number, type, and content of additives in a particular lubricating oil depend on the purpose and conditions of application. Different areas and conditions of application have conditioned the production of a large number of variants of lubricating oils, both for lubrication of ICU engines, automotive transmissions, industrial systems, and special devices, as well as oils for mechanical metal processing.
Mineral-based oils, derived from petroleum, are the quantitatively dominant basic component of liquid and consistent lubricants. Solvent neutral oils (SN-80, SN-150, SN-350 i SN-500) have the widest application in our production recipes, mostly paraffinic structures, while naphthenic oils are used only in special areas of application. Depending on the content of the dominant type of hydrocarbons, oils can be divided into paraffinic and naphthenic. Paraffin oils contain higher amounts of saturated hydrocarbons of normal and branched paraffin structure. They have a lower density ( 0,850 – 0,890), viscosity index between 90 and 105, lower volatility, lower dissolution power, good colour stability, and oxidative stability.
In recent times, synthetic base oils are increasingly represented, which are produced by chemical synthesis from different components, by different technological procedures. The basic types of synthetic base oils are polyalphaolefins, polyisobutenes, polyglycols, polyglycol ethers, esters of mono- and dicarboxylic acids, esters of phosphoric acid, silicones, esters of silicic acid, etc. The natural hydrocarbons that mineral oils consist of cannot meet the growing demands set before modern lubricants for a long time. That is why synthetic substances, collectively called additives, are added to them.
One additive may have a synergistic effect on another, yet the effects can be antagonistic. Additives improve the following properties of base oils: low-temperature properties, viscosity-temperature characteristics, emulsion characteristics, anticorrosive properties, load resistance, and so on.
The technological process in our production plant takes place at a temperature of 50 – 60 ºC because the viscosity of oils and additives is low enough to allow good mixing and homogeneity of the mixture. At these temperatures, the thermal load of mineral base oils and additives is almost negligible. Oils are mixed discontinuously in 1.5 and 3 m³ volume agitators (so-called batch mixing), supplied with a heating system and a mixer. The components are dosed via an electronic measuring system. Propeller mixers are used because they provide the required mixing intensity, and flow pumps have sufficient power to ensure the achievement of the required volumetric oil flow.
