In the refining process, the crude oil is converted into transportation fuels—gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel fuel—and other petroleum products, such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), heating fuel, lubricating oil, wax, and asphalt. Its chemical structure allows it to polymerise at high temperatures to form a sticky wax type material often referred as castor varnish. This wax still has lubricating properties. Castor Oil would be Why use Castor oil? [0018] (3) Wax obtained by a lubricating oil dewaxing step (slack wax or the like) and/or synthetic wax obtained by a gas-to-liquid (GTL) process (Fischer-Tropsch wax, GTL wax or the like). Categorized | Oils & Lubricants The Ultra-S base oil is a base oil having a very high viscosity index(VI) that is produced through a hydrocracking, wax hydroisomerization and hydrofinishing process. They are cost-effective and The presence of waxes, which can result in poor flow properties at low temperature. Castor oil has been used as a lubricant for decades. Poor oxidation stability at Synthetic base oils are expensive because of the processing involved in creating these pure chemical base oils. Synthetics are termed such due to the altering of the base structure to create a set of molecules that retains advantages or improves on them but minimises the disadvantages of a simply processed oil. When choosing synthetic oil over regular mineral oil it's worth remembering that mineral oils have been around for a long time and function very well as lubricants in most industrial applications. High-gravity crude oils contain more of the lighter The most common separation process is distillation, where the components of the crude are separated into several streams based on their boiling temperature.
