Engine / Motor Oil Filling Machine: The Selection Guide

How to choose the filling machine for your engine or motor oil? VKPAK designed and manufactured the some types of Filling Machine for them which are base on the features of the oil and the container specifications, also those fillers are suitable for filling mineral oils, windscreen products, anti-freeze liquid, coolants. This guide focuses on engine / motor oil filling solutions and includes the following:

  1. What is engine / motor oil?
  2. Common packaging containers for engine / motor oil
  3. Selection of engine / motor oil filling machine

What is engine / motor oil?

Motor oil, engine oil, or engine lubricant is any one of various substances that consist of base oils enhanced with various additives, particularly antiwear additives, detergents, dispersants, and, for multi-grade oils, viscosity index improvers. Motor oil is used for lubrication of internal combustion engines. The main function of motor oil is to reduce friction and wear on moving parts and to clean the engine from sludge and varnish. It also neutralizes acids that originate from fuel and from oxidation of the lubricant, improves sealing of piston rings, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from moving parts.

Motor oil is a lubricant used in internal combustion engines, which power cars, motorcycles, lawnmowers, engine-generators, and many other machines. [From Wiki]

Common packaging containers for engine / motor oil

Today, motor oil in the USA is generally sold in bottles of one U.S. quart (950 mL) and on a rarity in one-liter (33.8 U.S. fl oz) as well as in larger plastic containers ranging from approximately 4.4 to 5 liters (4.6 to 5.3 U.S. qt) due to most small to mid-size engines requiring around 3.6 to 5.2 liters (3.8 to 5.5 U.S. qt) of engine oil. In the rest of the world, it is most commonly available in 1L, 3L, 4L, and 5L retail packages. Distribution to larger users is often in bulk, by tanker truck or in one barrel (160 L) drums.

Selection of engine / motor oil filling machine

Engine / motor oil 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 engine / motor oil, weighing and filling machine for engine oil, this type of filler is suitable for filling the engine oils from 500ml to 5000ml jerry can, 20L to 300L pail and drum. the filling quantity was control by the weighing system, no matter the oil viscosity and temperature, the weight is same, but the liquid level will be different for different viscousity type of oils. On the other hand, a pump or piston filling machine may be used for thicker, more viscous oils and lubricants, it is for filling 100ml to 5000ml, it is volumetric type, the measurement is different with the weighing system. These two types of filler are both suitable for filling engine oil, they all have their own advantages, the user can choose the filler accordingly.

Engine / motor 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.
