Industrial lubricants whether fluids, greases, or oils are used to reduce the wearing and tearing effects of various materials. They also help reduction of binding and friction and are a critical industrial product . The best effects however is the reduction in corrosion in both the inner and the outer layers due to their uses. Multiple commercial lubricants including low and high viscosity oils, lubricant powders, silicates and waxes are used for this purpose. Oils can be synthetic or natural.
Lubricants are mostly used in capacitors, electric discharge machines, and transformers. They are also applicable in lubricating, sealing as well as in coating. In many cases lubricants are also used as transfer fluids and thermal oils. Machine cooling also requires the use of lubricants. Transmission fluids are useful for the gearbox assemblies. Lubricants thus are the life line for the industrial projects. However it is necessary that the lubricants are of high quality so that they enhance the life of the machines in which they are used. This is true whether they are synthetic lubricants, oil-water emulsions, petroleum or the mineral oils. Lubricants used in aerospace, automotive, and all types of industrial applications have to be of good quality.
