Description of base oil

Base oil ,For lubrication oil which is considered as a basis and after adding additives to the final lubricant called based oil . In terms of volume of lubricant it is one of the most important components in the lubricant base formulation, on average, 95% up. Some groups, such as hydraulic and compressor lubricant, chemical additives and only 1% base oil makes up 99% combined. Other lubricants like metal working fluids, lubricants and gear oils contain additives may be up to 30%.

How do you get base oil?

It can be obtained from oil or non-oil sources. virgin base oil obtained from crude oil .Since most of the oil used in the production of lubricants obtained from oil resources.

Properties of base oil

It properties of the oil obtained is dependent on the type of crude oil and refining operations. It is chemical components during the refining process of crude oil from which it obtained, to inherit. Since crude oil containing different combinations such as paraffinic hydrocarbons, naphthenic and aromatic sulfur compounds are also, they are also made up of these compounds. it composition comprising a major effect on the properties of spent oils, paraffinic compounds, naphthenic and aromatic. ATDM company is proud to produce and distribute base oil of any purity all over the world.
