Lubricating Oil

Lubricating oil is a thick fatty oil used to make the parts of a machine move smoothly. Lubricating oil creates a separating film between surfaces of adjacent moving parts to minimize direct contact between them, decreasing heat caused by friction and reducing wear.

Description

Lubricating oil is a thick fatty oil used to make the parts of a machine move smoothly. Lubricating oil creates a separating film between surfaces of adjacent moving parts to minimize direct contact between them, decreasing heat caused by friction and reducing wear.

Features

Coating

Lubricating oil provides a coating to prevent contact between two metal surfaces of moving parts.

Lubrication Helps To Maintain

The protecting layer formed by lubrication helps to maintain component surfaces from rust and corrosion.

Oil Absorbs

Lubricating oil absorbs heat, moving it away from surfaces.
