Can Lubricants Increase Friction?

  Like any greases & oils, Lubricants are usually used to reduce the effect (heat generated when the surface moves) of friction. Thus, we can say that it decreases the friction between surfaces in mutual contact rather than increasing friction. Therefore, a good lubricant or proper lubrication process reduces friction and has multi-functional tasks mentioned below. 1st & for most lubricants used to separate or lubricate two moving surfaces. 2nd A good lubricant or if you have selected proper lubrication process then lubricants can be a good sealant & can be used for the sealing process. 3rd one of the major roles of lubricants is to reduce the heat generated by two moving surfaces in mutual contact. Lubricants can act as a coolant. Last but not least Lubricating oils & greases can also protect the material from different types of foreign particles, which can damage the materials like bearing, gears etc. & protects from oxidization and corrosion. To clarify how lubri

Basics of Coolant Management

Industrial Lubricants are always a vast and interesting subject to discuss and share. Broadly Industrial Lubricants can be discussed in two verticals – one is, of course, Factory, Plant & Machinery [ FPM ] products like Hydraulics, Gear Oils, Compressor Oils, etc. Another is Lubricants used in processing. One of the most sensitive portfolios in the later segment is water extendable cutting coolants used in metal processing industries. Many technical publications and in-depth experiences are shared for the maintenance of cutting coolants. However, today's effort is to address the maintenance basics of Soluble cutting coolants, either mineral-based conventional high oil content products or new generation semi-synthetic products. Before going into maintenance, practices let us have a quick look at the composition and chemistry of Cutting coolants. New generation cutting oils are a complex combination of Lubricity components blended with Emulsifiers, Co-emulsifiers, Corrosion Inhib

Relation Between Friction, Wear & Lubricants

(R.S) What is Friction:-   Friction is the resistance to motion and wear is the loss of material as a result of friction, contact fatigue and corrosion. Reducing friction is a key objective of lubrication, but there are many other benefits of this process. Lubricating films can help prevent corrosion by protecting the surface from water and other corrosive substances. Different Types of Friction:- Sliding Friction:-  The term sliding friction refers to the resistance created by two objects sliding against each other. This can also be called kinetic friction. Sliding friction is intended to stop an object from moving.    Rolling Friction:-  In simple words Rolling friction is the force resisting the motion when a body rolls on a surface.     Also there some more types of friction is there like Boring Friction, Mix of Sliding & Rolling Friction, Internal Friction of a deform-able body. Majorly in all types of application, we can see these types of friction & the main purpose of

About is a blog website publishing technical articles, Technical Abstracts through the Lubrication Specialists & Tribology Scientist from all over the world. If you are in the field of engineering, it does not matter which branch of engineering, it may be mechanical, electrical, or chemical then the lubrication process & Industrial Lubricants will be a well-known subject for you. But most probably if we notice that in every industry we use general-purpose lubricants for almost all types of applications but in the modern era of industry 4.0 there are specialty lubricants available for different types of applications as per the application & environmental point of view. However, selecting the proper lubrication process & proper lubricants for each type of application is not a bit easy job for everyone. Also, gathering all the technical information about the proper lubrication process & selection of proper lubricants is a time taking job because it is very hard to find out each & every application’s lubrication process in one platform. Goal

Therefore, here we appeared in the picture. Our goal is to develop a digital platform for all the engineers looking for the best lubrication process for each & every application of every type of industry so that they can get much cost-benefit by implementing the process & it will be one step ahead of sustainability. In addition, all the lubrication engineers & specialist or Tribology scientists will get a common digital platform to share their lifelong experience with all over the world. Therefore, this platform connects two mediums of peoples. One looking for the information & the other one who has all the information both are in this common platform.

Also, it is better to clear that technical information posted on this website by the authors are not sponsored by any means till now & information provided here can be accessed by anyone from anywhere in the world. We have no restriction of access to our website from any point in the world. is India’s only digital platform, which covers Lubricants, Lubrication, Reliability & sustainability. covers all aspects of machinery lubrication of almost all industry types like
Steel, Cement, Power, Automobile, Construction, Mining, Chemical, Oil & Gas, Textile, Food, etc and Industrial Lubricating oil analysis like lubrication fundamentals, lubrication basics for machinery designers/engineers/operators or users. Also periodically, we share the best practices for lubricant storage and handling procedure, lubrication process development, and lubricant analysis and interpretation.
