Your internal combustion engine is one fine piece of machinery, and it’s easy to keep it that way by using high-quality engine oil from our product range. Your motor requires oil not only to operate smoothly, but also to protect intricate components from rust. You can select from a variety of engine lubricants, engine oil and motor oil, so your internal combustion engine can continue to fire on all cylinders.
Neat Cutting Oil
The extensive range of Neat cutting oils uses additive technology to give optimum performance levels across a wide range of metallurgies, operations and cutting tool severities.
We have biodegradable, chlorine and chlorine-free products, suitable for a wide range of metal cutting applications as diverse as internal broaching, thread cutting of titanium alloys, turning of brass components and vertical and horizontal honing.
Hydraulics describe the transfer of energy and signals through fluids; power is transferred to drive, control and move. Hydraulics fluids based on mineral oils, synthetic fluids and fire-resistant fluids are used in all types of machinery and equipment.
Modern hydraulics can be divided into three principle areas: stationary, mobile and aviation hydraulics. Each of these areas makes special demands on its components and the hydraulic medium. The performance of hydraulic systems has increased significantly, which is reflected in higher pressures, higher system temperatures and lower system volumes.
Hydraulic fluid developments are of enormous significance – optimum applications save energy, reduce maintenance intervals, reduce wear, increase machine life and thus enable worthwhile savings. Our commitment to R&D ensures we’re able to provide hydraulic fluids based on the latest technology.
Gear oil is a special lubricant for transmissions and differentials in cars, trucks and machinery. Manual gearboxes and differentials use rather highly viscous hypoid gear oils compared to engine oils. Gearboxes do not have an oil pump, so the high viscosity is needed to distribute the oil and to keep it on the metal surfaces, as only the lowermost part of the gears is located in the oil sump.
Depending on the type, these oils contain different amounts of extreme pressure and antiwear additives. The viscosity grades of gear oils are specified according to the SAE Standard J 306. The API (American Petroleum Institute) divides gear oils into 6 classes.
The function of grease is to remain in contact with and lubricate moving surfaces without leaking out under the force of gravity, centrifugal action or being squeezed out under pressure. Its major practical requirement is that it retains its properties under shear forces at all temperatures it experiences during use.
Grease and oil are not interchangeable. Grease is used when it is not practical or convenient to use oil. The lubricant choice for a specific application is determined by matching the machinery design and operating conditions with desired lubricant characteristics.
