Industrial lubricants are used in a large variety of equipments and applications.
This deals with all types of products destined for the lubrication of industrial machines, such as hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, bearings, open and closed gears, machine tool slideway, pneumatic tools and industrial transmissions. In all these categories, the one which has the most volumes is represented by the hydraulic oils. Usually these hydraulic fluids are containing anti-wear additives to minimize wear of the pumps. In general, the inserting of additives in industrial lubricants, except for products with special applications, is not very high (maximum 5%), but that which is fundamental is the balance between the various additives in order to reach some particular performance.
Apart from the chemical/physical requirements on these products, the most important requirement criteria on industrial lubricants have been specified in ISO/DIN standards. In addition, manufacturers or components or machinery have their own specific requirements (EATON VICKERS, DAVID BROWN, DENISON, ALSTHOM, SIEMENS etc.) that prescribe additional tribological laboratory tests (e.g. friction and wear) or tests that simulate practical conditions. Industrial lubricants too are mixtures of carefully matched components, the "base oils" and "additives", which combine to determine behaviour when in use, both in terms of performance and longer life.
Represent the predominant component in the majority of lubricants. The finished product may contain from 70% to 99% base oil.
The quality of base oils is closely linked to the type of crude oil and the process used. The base oils can be of different natures:
Minerals: mix of hydrocarbons obtained from crude by a conventional refinery process or by a standard hydrogenation process. Products of a different viscosity within the distilling process are called "cuts".
The number of "cuts" and relative viscosity properties depend on the manufacturer and type of process. The following oils are normally produced:
• a very fluid stock (SN 80 ÷ 100 or spindle)
• a fluid stock (SN 125 ÷ 170 typically 150)
• a medium stock (SN 350 ÷ 600)
• a BrightStock (BS 150 ÷ 200)
Non-conventional base oils: Distillates obtained from petroleum stocks by general refining processes and chemical/physical after-treatment (HC method).
Synthetic base oils: all base types obtained by synthetic processes. Obtained by oligomerization and hydrogenation of olefins, they are of higher quality than HC products.
Additives are substances that are added to a lubricant's formulation to achieve defined behaviours in use.
The most important additives are:
to limit deposits
• Detergents, dispersants
to reduce wear from corrosion and limit mechanical wear
• Anti-wear additives
• Anti-corrosion additives
to modify the physical properties of the base oil
• Pour Point Depressants (P.P.D)
• Viscosity index enhancers
• VM friction modifiers
Turbines are extremely complex and delicate and the oil used with this type of machinery plays an important part in ensuring that it operates correctly, that maintenance costs are kept to a minimum and, above all, that it doesn't break down.
Turbine oil is produced from high quality mineral bases that provide the highest levels of performance in terms of demulsivity (the separation of water) and air separation.
Eni's range of turbine oil includes products made with non-conventional bases specifically for sophisticated applications or in cases where exceptional resistance to oxidization is required.
Metalworking fluids is a macro-category in which there is a multitude of products for an enormous variety of uses related to the production processes of mechanical components of all types and sizes.
Also in terms of composition, this is a widely varying macro-category in which mineral and synthetic oils are used, as well as all kinds of chemical products. In this specific sector there are both generic products, in terms of application, and specific products, designed for particular plants and customers. This is why such products require technical assistance in order to highlight the peculiarities of each individual application and develop the necessary modifications to ensure that the product is able to meet the specific lubrication requirements.
The best results in metalworking can only be obtained through close cooperation between the supplier and customer and the creation of a partnership between the two.
A focus on people
Today, everyone comes into daily contact with a number of so-called "allergen potentials". These are loads on the skin that make the development of an allergy more likely, including chemical substances in our working environment or home. In order to prevent allergies and complications, the main concern today is to avoid any such "allergen potentials".
Eni's Aquamet - more safety at work
Eni's Aquamet products were developed with the goal of reducing the biocides that are normally used in coolants as far as possible so as to minimize the allergen potential of these active substances. We are breaking new ground here, because only innovation means progress. At the same time we take our bearings from not just statutory limits but also the latest occupational health and safety findings.
A focus on your production machines
The demands on modern manufacturing processes in metal working are growing steadily, be these difficult cutting operations in high-strength steels or complex geometries. The same applies for effective work piece cleaning and corrosion protection. Modern processing agents are an important parameter in all machining processes, particularly on account of their contribution to maximizing the performance and simultaneously reducing the process costs.
Eni's Aquamet - the success factor for your production costs
Eni's Aquamet coolants face up to any technical challenge. They stand for maximum performance through longer tool lives, contribute to high dimensional accuracies and the best surface qualities. Eni's Aquamet products are characterized by an extraordinary bio-stability and permit the longest tool lives.
Low discharge losses reduce the replenishment amounts and make an important added contribution to lowering the process costs.
A focus on the environment
One of the biggest challenges for the future will be the sparing use of our given resources. Special attention will have to be paid to both the optimum use of raw materials as well as the farsighted planning of the ecological processing or disposal of waste products from the manufacturing processes.
Eni's Aquamet - optimizes and spares resources
Our coolants offer the longest tool lives. This cuts not only your machine downtimes due to a change of product but also significantly reduces your waste disposal quantities. We cut your consumptions through lower replenishment amounts on account of the reduced discharge losses. Eni's Aquamet products thus make an important contribution to the optimized use of resources in your production processes.
