WHAT IS A LUBRICANT MADE OF?
- Base oils & additives.
WHAT FACTORS AFFECT A LUBRICANT’S VISCOSITY?
A lubricant’s viscosity is influenced by:
- Oil Composition (types of hyrdrocarbons, weight, and additives).
- Temperature – ↓ with increased temperature, ↑ with decreased temperature.
WHY USE MULTI GRADE LUBRICANTS?
- A multi grade lubricant’s viscosity is maintained across a wide range of temperatures.
WHY ARE THERE ADDITIVES IN SOME LUBRICANTS?
- Add performance properties to lubricants.
- Improve specific base oil properties.
WHAT IS A FOOD GRADE LUBRICANT?
- Food Grade Lubricants are lubricants (Oil or Grease) which are used to lubricate machinery in the food industry.
WHERE CAN NSF H-1 FOOD GRADE LUBRICANTS BE USED?
- On food machinery.
- For food producing and manufacturing.
- For food packing, processing.
- Preparing, treating, packaging.
- Food transportation (i.e., forklifts in a processing/handling facility).
WHAT IS A GREASE?
- A grease is a lubricant trapped or held in suspension by a thickening agent.
WHAT IS A THE “DROPPING POINT” OF A LUBRICANT?
- The temperature at which the lubricant converts from a semi-solid state to a liquid.
WHAT IS THE FLASH POINT OF A LUBRICANT?
- The lowest possible temperature at which a substance gives off enough vapor to ignite the air with an ignition source.
WHAT IS MEANT BY THE TERM “SUPER CLEAN” IN OUR TECHNOLUBE PRODUCTS?
- Products which meet or exceed MIL-SPEC’s and are passed through a highly efficient filtration system (in LSC’s case the filters are 0.03 micron) are considered to be “Super Clean”.
WHAT ARE AUTOMOTIVE AFTERMARKET PRODUCTS?
- Automotive Aftermarket Products are specialized performance enhancing fluids and cleaning agents designed especially for the automotive aftermarket.
