Industrial lubricants are gaining popularity these
Heat transfer fluids and thermal oils
These are very essential lubricants used in industries. The lubricants are mainly used for the purpose of carrying thermal energy for innumerable applications including process heating, metal working, machine cooling etc.
Hydraulic fluids and transmission oil
This is another major type of lubricants used in industries. Hydraulic fluids are mainly used for transmission of power in hydraulic machinery. Such fluids used in industries are based on mineral oil or water. On the other hand, the transmission fluids are helpful in areas like gearbox assemblies. Most hydraulic and transmission fluids comprises of petroleum or mineral oils, synthetic lubricants, oil-water emulsions etc. They are particularly used for aerospace, marine, automotive and military applications.
Dielectric greases and insulating fluids
Dielectric greases and insulating fluids are also very commonly used in industries for reducing friction, wear and tear of materials. The products are used for electrical devices such as capacitors, electric discharge machining, transformers and many others. Moreover, they can also be used for the purpose of coating, lubricating and sealing as well.
Thus, it becomes clear that industrial lubricants are of great use for the industries.
