With so many different types of lubricants, it is important that you are using the right type for your engine or machine. At British Empire Fuels, our knowledgeable technicians are here to help you determine which lubricant best meets your needs.
Lubricants are an important part of every machine. When the parts of a machine are in motion, they can rub against each other, often with considerable force. Lubricants are used to reduce friction between surfaces, which ultimately reduces the heat generated when the surfaces move.
Lubricants have to work well at a range of temperatures. If temperatures are too cold, lubricants will become harder and more solid, which sometimes means they work less efficiently. This is one of the reasons engines and transmissions are less efficient before they have been properly warmed up. Conversely, if lubricants get too hot, they become thinner and less viscous. This is especially bad news for heavy-duty engines and equipment. Since they work more slowly at high power, they need a thicker, more durable layer of lubrication. The thinner the lubrication becomes, the more likely a machine is to seize up.
