  • Lubricants Grease & Fluids

    Greasing your machinery isn't considered a task by most maintenance departments, and that is why most machines break down sooner than usual because they weren't appropriately greased as applying lubricating grease on your machines could improve their efficiency along with their life span.

    Difference Between Oil And Grease

    Most people confuse grease with oil but, trust us; there is a huge difference between both. Grease performs the same function as oil, which is lubricating the machinery, but it is much thicker. Therefore, it lasts long. So, grease is a better choice for those hard to reach places inside machinery that might be more expensive to lubricate on a regular basis. If you own large machinery, then buying grease in bulk might be a wise option as the cost goes down when you purchase in bulk.

    Benefits Of Applying Grease

    A thick coating of grease can also serve as a layer of protection for your equipment as it catches dust and other particles before they reach the inner side of your machinery. If you are applying grease yourself, then you need to know where it needs to go and where not. Seasons should be taken into consideration when applying grease, such as in wet or rainy season grease will protect your equipment from rust, when its cold, the viscosity of grease should be lighter due to low temperature and when its summer, the viscosity should be dense as a light grease coat may melt away due to high temperatures. Military-Grade Grease Every machine needs greasing, that's why there is military-grade grease as well known as mil g 23827 or Aeroshell Grease. As the name suggests, this grease is used in military aircraft.

    How Often Does Machinery Needs Greasing?

    When you buy a machine, the manufacturer's instructions suggest that you should grease the machine weekly or even monthly, depending on the usage. But, personal experience has a different story to tell, ACI Lubes Co recommends that you grease your machine every day and if required, a few times during the same day so your machine could have an extended life while staying in perfect shape. You can make the job of greasing easier by buying grease guns and tube grease cases, as they allow you to reach those spots which you can't without these tools. Greasing might not seem an exciting task but lubricating your machine with grease every now and then will improve its performance. Thus, adding value to your business. If you plan to buy grease, then you're at the right place we ACI Lubes Co has a wide range of greases available.

    Aviation engine lubricants are designed to keep your engines moving under a wide range of operating temperatures. Machining lubricants reduce friction by making sure that there is no metal-to-metal contact. As long as the oil film remains unbroken, all the metallic friction is quickly replaced by the internal fluid friction of the lubricant, keeping friction and wear to a minimum. If you are having second thoughts about the benefits of a high-quality engineered custom lubricant, then keep on reading. ACI Lubes Co will provide you with all the reasons why aviation lubricants are vital to your aircraft machines.

    Major Functions of Lubricants in Aviation Engines

    The primary purpose of ECL (engineered custom lubricants) is to reduce the friction in an aviation engine. It is also responsible for keeping the engine cool by transferring the heat from the engine to the fuel. Apart from that, it also keeps the engine clean while keeping the seals intact, which helps fight rust and corrosion in jet engines. Airplanes that are used infrequently need the rust and corrosion that good aviation lubricants can provide. Aircrafts that are mostly parked in the hanger have a high potential for rust and corrosion, along with other downtime problems. The more consistently and frequently an airplane is flown, the easier it is to properly lubricate and maintain it.

    Benefits Of Using A Lubricant In Aviation Engines

    All jet engine oils have one purpose in common - they all keep the engine clean by removing varnishes, sludge, and grunge accumulation on plugs, oil pans, or on the screen. But an aviation lubricant not only keeps your aircraft clean, but it also maintains a clean ring belt area along with better control of the combustion process. Because those rings are able to move at optimum speed, your jet engine has better ring seal, operates at higher efficiencies, produces less blow-by, and, most importantly, consumes less fuel. A dirty ring belt will restrain the movement of the rings inside the grooves, and they won't be sealed. This could generate pressure between the cylinder wall and the ring face - leading to scarring, wear, or scuffing. Thus, making aviation lubrication extremely important for airplanes. ACI Lubes Co has a variety of lubricants that can help you in avoiding downtime so that your airplane and business can reach new heights.
