Motor oils are any neutral, non-polar chemical substance that is a viscous liquid at room temperatures and is both hydrophobic, and lipophilic. We can provide all of the following: Gear Oil, Chain Oil, Compressor Oil, Turbine Oil, Circulating Oil, Way Lube, Air Tool Oil, Food Grade, Heat Transfer Fluid, Marine Lubricants.

Crude oil

Crude oil, or petroleum, and its refined components, collectively called petrochemicals, are crucial resources in the modern economy. Crude oil originates from ancient fossilized organic materials, such as plankton and algae. Geochemical processes convert these two into oil. Mineral oil is organic. However, it is classified as “mineral oil” instead of “organic oil” because its organic origin is remote. This is because it is obtained in the spaces of rocks, underground traps, and sands. Mineral oil also refers to several specific concentrates of crude oil.

Oil as a Lubricant

Oil has a high carbon and hydrogen content and in most cases is flammable and surface active. Given that they are non-polar, motor oils do not easily adhere to other substances. This makes them very useful as lubricants for various engineering purposes. Mineral oils are more commonly used as machine lubricants than biological oils. Whale oil is preferred for lubricating clocks, because it does not evaporate. However its use was banned in the USA in 1980.

Types of Oil

It is a long-running myth that spermaceti from whales has still been used in NASA projects such as the Hubble Telescope because of its extremely low freezing temperature. This is not actually oil, but a mixture mostly of wax esters; there is no evidence that NASA has actually used whale oil.

Some oils burn in liquid or aerosol form, generating light, and heat. This can be used directly, or converted into other forms of energy such as electricity or mechanical work. To obtain many fuel oils, crude oil is pumped from the ground and is shipped via oil tanker or a direct pipeline to an oil refinery. Once at the refinery, it is converted from crude oil to diesel fuel (petro) ethane, fuel oils, gasoline (petrol), jet fuel, kerosene, benzene, and liquefied petroleum gas.
