  • From Lubricants to Packaging Materials: ARS Scientists Just Say "No " to Petroleum
    . Close-up of the additive being placed onto ball bearings before friction test. The additives would provide an alternative to today 's petroleum-based products --and a potentially profitable market for
  • Straight Oil (Non-soluble)
    Straight oils are non-emulsifiable and used in machining operations in an undiluted form. They are composed of base mineral or petroleum oils and often contain polar lubricants such as fats, vegetable oils, and esters as well as extreme pressure additives such as chlorine, sulfur, and phosphorus
  • Fluid Catalytic Cracker (FCC) (.pdf)
    and the manner in which they operate their refineries. An oil refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, and liquefied petroleum gas. The measurement of hydrogen
  • Synthetic Fluids and Greases
    no petroleum or mineral oil base, but are instead formulated from alkaline organic and inorganic compounds along with additives for corrosion inhibition. They are generally used in a diluted form with concentrations ranging from 3% to 10%. Synthetic fluids often provide the best cooling performance among
  • Guide to Selecting UCON Fluids and Lubricants
    The broad line of UCON TM fluids and lubricants includes a wide range of base stocks and formulated products that differ significantly from petroleum, animal, and vegetable oils. These polyalkylene glycol (PAG)-based synthetic products can be varied and controlled in formulation and used
  • High Water Content Fluids (HWCF)
    High water content fluids (HWCF), high water base fluids (HWBF), 5-95 fluids or ISO HFA fluids are water soluble fluids used at very high dilution rates or very low concentration levels (i.e., ~ 90 to 95% water and ~ 5 to 10% additive concentrate). HWCF concentrates may contain petroleum oil
  • The push toward lifetime lubes
    Automobiles that never need oil changes? ...Severe-hydrocracked lubricating oils could make all this possible --- at about half the cost of synthetic oils. Conoco's recent $500 million hydrocracking plant turns petroleum crude into Group II and Group III lube oil base stocks. Flow diagrams
  • Lube it for life
    Mechanical carbon machine parts excel where oil-grease lubricants won't work. Sometimes moving parts go into applications that just can 't risk exposure to petroleum lubricants. Nobody wants grease in their corn flakes, for example. Ditto for pharmaceuticals. Mechanical-carbon materials contain
