AUTOMOTIVE LUBRICANTS



Producer of the Internal Combustions Engine and organizations related to it, including SAE Society of Automotive Engineers in Canada and United States have been specifically established performance criteria for Automotive Engine Lubricants.

Automotive diesel engine oils and gasoline’s are required to evaluate a series of performances to determine their thermal and chemical stability, viscosity, lubricity, wear protection, corrosion resistance, high and low temperature performance and detergency. They are directed towards the code system which allow its client and customers to make sure their suitability and sustainability for the use in different temperatures, heavy-duty and in different viscosity ranges.



Automotive engines lubricants including gear and transmissions are manufactured with High Viscosity Index (HVI) to counteract changes in viscosity with the change in temperature. Automotive Lubricants are formulated specially to resist heat under severe breakdown as the viscosity lubricates internally in the combustion engines. The Internal Combustion Engines oils shouldn’t be much thicker to lubricate the internally affecting parts specially when engine starts up in the colder temperature or atmosphere, and similarly it shouldn’t be much thinner to cause trouble in the warm or hot temperature while operating. It should oppose the buildup carbon on valves, cylinders and rings and the formation of deposits from moisture or from corrosive acids. Automotive Lubricants contains detergents which are designed to hold metallic wear particles and carbons in suspension so they can be easily filtered and gets refined out as oil circulates and causes damage and not easily accumulate on the parts of Internal Engine. 

Manufacturing Automotive Lubricant

Automotive Lubricants are designed to provide blending and packaging facilities, also known as blending plants or lube plants. These facilities are located either in refineries which produce automotive lubricants base stocks or may be in the adjacent where the base stock marine barges or tankers, tank trucks or railroad tank cars are received. The packaging and blending plant blends and add compounds in to Automotive lubricating oil base stocks to design wide range of refined and finished products which then are shipped un containers in the form of Bulks.
