To Study the Lubricant Industry in India with Special Reference to Castrol India Ltd

Rs. 500.00

Lubricating oils are basically made of two components viz., Lube base oil which comes out from refineries after refining the crude oil and has some inherent lubricating properties like any other liquid. And the performance enhancing chemical additives which are added to improve different characteristics of the resultant mixture. When two solid surfaces are rubbed against each other heat is generated because of friction. If a thin film of any liquid is put between the two surfaces the friction is reduced and the heat generation also reduces.
The lubricating oils basically perform this simple duty in the most complicated situations is inside engine, in a machine tool, in a gear box or any other relevant machinery application. Lubricating oil is basically required to perform the following duties: Cooling, Sealing, Cleaning, Resist corrosion & wear & lubricate. These parameters are enhanced by the addition of chemical additives. Lubricating oils are broadly categorized in two categories - Automotive & Industrial. While Engine Oil, gear oil, transmission oil etc constitute automotive oils, turbine oil, bearing oil, hydraulic oil etc. are examples of industrial oils.
Lubricants have been used since the discovery of the wheel. During most of history, lubricants were natural oils derived from animal or vegetable sources, but since discovery of crude oil recovery procedures and refining, they have changed to petroleum base stocks. Petroleum base stocks are used in about 99% of lubricant formulations, with synthetic base stocks used for some high-performance specialty products. The development of the lubricant additive industry as it is now known, seriously started with automotive (car) manufacture and the need for specialized lubricants.
Greases are mixture of a thickening agent like soap with oil. The soap may be metallic soaps like lithium, calcium etc. Greases are used where lubrication by oil is not possible. For example wheel bearings, chassis of vehicles.
