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.View Video
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]

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.
Finally, let's address the filling of lubricants with a capacity of 30L-200L or more.
Drum filling machines are recommended
At VKPAK, we specialize in providing state-of-the-art filling machines and packaging equipment to manufacturers who demand high-quality, efficient supply chain operations. With our extensive range of machines, you can efficiently fill and seal containers of various sizes and shapes, allowing your products to be packaged and shipped to customers with ease.
Our expertise in the industry is reflected in the reliability and productivity of our packaging solutions, particularly our filling technology. Because different oils react differently to temperature variations, it is crucial to have a precise understanding of the lubricants you are filling and to adjust your filling equipment accordingly(High temperature variations of up to 10°C could result in a volume variation of as much as 9.5ml for 1l.). Our filling and packaging machines are specifically designed to provide optimal performance when weighing, filling, and sealing containers that hold lubricants.
Customizable Filling Machines for Optimal Performance
Our filling machines and packaging equipment are designed to provide superior performance in filling and sealing containers of various sizes and shapes, whether for short or large production runs. We offer turn-key machinery options, allowing you to add components and begin production immediately. In addition, our technicians and engineers can design and customize packaging machines to handle specialized or even explosive products.
Our lubricant oil filling machine can fill and cap containers ranging from 100ml to 1,000L, making it a versatile solution for companies of all sizes. With VKPAK's customized filling equipment, you can rest assured that your lubricant containers are filled accurately, with minimal product waste.
Boost Productivity and Efficiency for Your Business
Investing in the right lube oil filling machine can have a significant impact on your production processes. Our packaging machines offer optimal functionality and accuracy rates, ensuring that your containers are filled to the right capacity. Our automatic or semi-automatic filling machines can help you streamline your operations, boosting productivity and reaching production goals.
Our filling machines feature a simple machine interface that allows your workers to make adjustments quickly, enabling smooth transitions between different product runs. Our machines also offer quick tooling changeovers for different container sizes, as well as a customized cleaning program to maintain a safe and hygienic environment for your workers.
At VKPAK, we are committed to providing our customers with customized filling and capping machines that meet their unique needs. Whether you require turn-key machinery options, specialized filling equipment, or equipment upgrades, we are here to support you every step of the way. As a leading manufacturer and supplier of filling and capping machines, we pride ourselves on delivering quality products that enhance your business's bottom line.
