Lubricant Filling Machine

Summary

A lubricant is a substance that helps to reduce friction between surfaces in mutual contact, which ultimately reduces the heat generated when the surfaces move. It may also have the function of transmitting forces, transporting foreign particles, or heating or cooling the surfaces. The property of reducing friction is known as lubricity.

Lubricant oil is one of the many types of liquid products that VKPAK’s liquid fillers are designed to handle. We carry many models of motor oil filling machines along with other types of equipment to meet your facility’s specific needs, including customizable cappers, labelers, and conveyor systems. We’ll assist with product selection to determine which machinery will work best in your facility, and help with installation and setup.

A lubricant is a substance that helps to reduce friction between surfaces in mutual contact, which ultimately reduces the heat generated when the surfaces move. It may also have the function of transmitting forces, transporting foreign particles, or heating or cooling the surfaces. The property of reducing friction is known as lubricity. One of the largest applications for lubricants, in the form of motor oil, is protecting the internal combustion engines in motor vehicles and powered equipment.

Lubricating oil is a generic name for a wide range of products that are characterized by hundreds of base chemicals and additives. The most common lubricating oils are crude oil distillate fractions although both synthetic and plant-based lubricating oils are used. Here focuses on petroleum-based lubricating oils.

Typically lubricants contain 90% base oil (most often petroleum fractions, called mineral oils) and less than 10% additives. Vegetable oils or synthetic liquids such as hydrogenated polyolefins, esters, silicones, fluorocarbons and many others are sometimes used as base oils. Additives deliver reduced friction and wear, increased viscosity, improved viscosity index, resistance to corrosion and oxidation, aging or contamination, etc. [From Wiki]

Lubricating oil containers can be divided according to the size of the capacity: 50ml-5L, 5L-30L, 30L-200L; the common containers are as follows:

Lubricant filling machine selection needs to consider is the viscosity of the lubricant, with different formulations of lubricants will have a variety of viscosity of lubricants, detailed viscosity table please see: Common Liquid Viscosity Chart.

First let's address the filling of lubricants below 5L:

Lubricants can range in viscosity from very low to very high, which in turn means the packaging machinery used for the multitude of items in this industry will vary widely as well. For example, when filling an oil or lubricant, an overflow filling machine might be used for products in clear containers that require a consistent, level fill. On the other hand, a pump or piston filling machine may be used for thicker, more viscous lubricants. VKPAK will manufacture the ideal packaging equipment for your lubricants.

The following equipment is recommended.

Secondly, let's solve the lubricating oil filling from 5L-30L:

Usually, the filling of lubricating oil over 5L will be done by weighing type of measurement, at this time we will recommend the following equipment.

Around the world, companies are receiving lubricant containers for their operations. The lubricants can lower the amount of friction generated in working and moving components that could lead to excess heat that wears down parts quickly. Getting these liquids to their destinations means companies can stay productive and keep competitive as you need the right lubricant packaging machine.

Here at VKPAK, we provide filling machines and packaging equipment to manufacturers that need reliable and efficient supply chain operations. With our wide range of machines, you can efficiently fill and seal desired containers so that your products can be packaged and shipped to customers.

Our long-standing experience expresses itself in the high reliability and productivity of our packaging solutions. Our filling technology is a good example. The effects of temperature on lube oil varies from one oil to another: High temperature variations of up to 10°C could result in a volume variation of as much as 9.5ml for 1l. It is therefore essential to have a precise understanding of the oils to be filled and to adapt the filling solution accordingly.
