LUBE OIL BLENDING PLANT

WHAT IS LUBE OIL BLENDING PLANT?

A Lube Oil Blending Plant is a specialized facility where various lubricating oils are produced through the blending and mixing of base oils with additives. These plants are equipped with machinery and equipment designed to precisely control the blending process to achieve the desired specifications and performance characteristics of the final lubricant products. Capacity of Plant ranges from 5 MT per Day to 300 MT per Day Lube Oil Blending Plant.

There are two primary raw materials utilized in the manufacturing of lubricants:

• Base oil stocks for lubricants

• Additives

The process of blending and mixing base oil with additives results in the production of the final finished lubricating oil. Lubricating oil, a derivative of petroleum serves to mitigate friction between moving components within machines and engines. Its unique properties aid in reducing overheating, scuffing, rubbing, and corrosion. Consequently, lubricants contribute to prolonging equipment lifespan, optimizing the utilization of valuable resources, enhancing fuel efficiency, and ultimately mitigating greenhouse gas emissions.

LUBE BASE STOCK: One of the primary products derived from this process is base stock, which serves as the foundation for base oil. Base oil, utilized as a lubricant in machinery, requires the addition of specific chemicals known as additives to enhance its lubricating properties. These additives collectively serve various functions, with each additive serving a specific purpose, ultimately imparting distinct characteristics to the lubricant. The ratio of base oil to additives varies depending on the intended application, ranging from 85:15 to 90:10.

BASE OILS: Base oil, derived from highly refined crude oil or synthetic compositions, comprises approximately one percent of the total output of petroleum products from crude oil. It is a by-product obtained during the crude oil refining process, typically extracted alongside heavier fractions. Various operating conditions, such as moisture, dust, exposure to air, temperature fluctuations, pressure, corrosion, etc., influence the selection of base oil and additives required.

TYPES OF BASE OILS:
- Group 1
- Group 2
- Group 3
- Gas-to-liquids (GTL)
- SN500
- SN 150
- SN 70
