Industrial Lubricants

Industrial lubricants are used in a large variety of equipment and application.
This deals with all types of products destined for the lubrication of industrial machines, such as hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, bearings, open and closed gears, machine tool slideway, pneumatic tools and industrial transmissions. In all these categories the one which has the most volumes is represented by the hydraulic oils. Usually these hydraulic fluids contain anti-wear additives to minimize the wear of the pumps. In general  inserting  additives in industrial lubricants, except for products with special applications, is not very high (maximum 5%), but the balance between the various additives is fundamental in order to reach a particular performance.
Apart from the chemical/physical requirements of these products, the most important requirement criteria for industrial lubricants are specified in ISO/DIN standards. In addition, manufacturers or components or machinery have their own specific requirements (EATON VICKERS, DAVID BROWN, DENISON, ALSTHOM, SIEMENS etc.) that prescribe additional tribological laboratory tests (e.g. friction and wear) or tests that simulate practical conditions. Industrial lubricants too are mixtures of carefully matched components, the "base oils" and "additives", which combine to determine behaviour when in use, both in terms of performance and longer life.
