The Manufacturing Process of Lube Oil.
Lube oil (Lubricant oil) is a composition of base oil and additives, 90% of base oil and 10% of additives, the Base oil is sourced Used lube oil by Re-refining process (Recycling) and Crude Oil.
1.The used oil recycling its an regeneration process in which the different grade of used lube oil mixed, Then the re-refining or recycling process starts by Dehydration , High Vacuum Distillation with help of Wiped Film Evaporator and last the solvent extraction process. Lastly we get the base oil stock of 70-75% and rest 30-25% (Residual & Diesel) unlikely the process bit more complicated then crude oil refining for more info please visit our page – https://arslanenginery.com/used-oil-recycling/
2.The next Crude oil (Virgin oil) from which undergoes a primary purification process (sediment) before it is transfer into fractionating towers and the last solvent extraction.

Base oil to Lube oil
The Base oil is the basic raw material required for manufacturing of different grade of lube oils,The second important materials is additives, Then the blending process start both base oil and accurate quantity of stander additive are mixed into blending vessel on descent temperature & time period.
The different process use in lube oil blending are –
- Automatic batch blending ( ABB )
- In line blending ( ILB )
- Simultaneous metering blending ( SMB )
After blending process the oil are transfer to filtration cooling vessels and then the feeling & storage part begins usually plant operator refer in house feeling and labelling machine .
Packing are done in 500 ml, 1 Liters, 5 Liters bottles and 250 Liters of drums.
Lube oil are produce in below types with different grades, property and colours.
- Different Grade of Engine oil (10w40, 5w30, 15w40)
- Synthetic oil
- Transmission / Gear oil
- Break oil
- Hydraulic oil
- Industrial oils
- Transformer oil
- White oil
- Other Process oils
