Lubricants play a vital role in reducing friction between, and wear and tear of operating parts in different machines. Sometimes, movement of certain mechanical parts is possible only by the use of lubricants. This property to reduce friction is known as lubricity. A good lubricant is expected to possess different properties, namely high boiling point, high viscosity index, corrosion prevention ability, thermal stability, low freezing point and high resistivity to oxidation. Lubricants are known to increase operational life of mechanical parts, thereby providing higher efficiency output. Lubricants are employed for the smooth operation of mechanical parts and to remove residue deposited over them.
Basic raw materials utilized in manufacturing marine lubricants comprise mineral oils, synthetic oils or bio- based lubricants. Refinement of petroleum or crude oil leads to the production of mineral oil while synthetic oils are obtained from polyalphaolefins, which are hydrocarbon-based polyglycols. Group I plants are capable of producing heavier grade oils such as bright stock. Feedstock utilized in manufacturing marine lubricants consists of bright stock oil. Bright stock oils are used to formulate different types of industrial and marine lubricants. Bio-lubricants are based on biodegradable and renewable feedstock. They are manufactured using bio-based materials such as palm oil, castor oil and other vegetable- and animal-derived oils. Marine lubricants mainly comprise of 90% base oils and 10% additives.
