Lubricants in UAE play an important role in our lives. Whether we use them on vehicles, machinery, or for personal use, we cannot overlook their importance. This article will discuss AFMT technology, Ancient and Modern lubricants, and the shelf life limits of different lubricants. We’ll also cover the benefits of lubricants with extended shelf lives and a few ways to prolong the life of lubricants in your car. Let’s start!
AFMT™ is a novel lubricant formulation that reduces friction and increases oil life. The Prolong molecules lubricate raised metal surfaces, and the extreme lubricating film pressure fills in valleys and peaks to diminish metal-to-metal friction. It is continuously replaced by new AFMT™ molecules in the oil. As a result, the friction-causing friction is reduced, and the energy from fuel combustion is transferred directly into horsepower.
The earliest peoples of all times used various lubricants. The ancient Egyptians used vegetable oils and animal fats for their chariot wheels. The ancient people also used animal fat and led to lubricate their wheels. Shipbuilders used whale oil and naphtha to lubricate their sails and pulleys. All these methods were used for different purposes. And today, lubricants are made from petroleum.
Modern industrial equipment is a complex mix of greases, lubricating oils, and cutting fluids. To achieve optimal performance, these lubricants must be of the highest quality and specifically designed for the specific equipment. As industrial technology demands higher quality lubricants, manufacturers need to continuously improve the performance of their products to keep pace with the demands of modern industry. Proper handling and management of lubricants help extend their life and preserve key properties.
Shelf life limits for lubricants:
The shelf life limits for different lubricants vary depending on the product. Some lubricants, such as automotive oils with many additives, may have a shelf life of five years. Other lubricants, such as grease and cutting oils, may have a shelf life of one to three years. Base oils and light additives are often considered “industrial oils,” but their shelf life limits vary widely.
Oil companies don’t give guidelines on storing lubricants:
Manufacturers don’t always provide a standard guideline for proper storage when it comes to lubricants. Environmental conditions can cause oil to degrade faster than it should. Dust and dirt can contaminate lubricants, and fluctuating temperatures can cause thermal siphoning. Thermal siphoning is the process of air moving in and out of a container’s headspace. Even in a tightly sealed container, airborne particles can cause contamination and chemical degradation.
