Global Process Oil Market 2017-2021

About Process Oil

During the fractional distillation of crude oil, the heated oil fraction is removed to derive process oils from it. Process oils are more volatile than gasoline and are mixtures of naphthenic, paraffinic, and aromatic compounds in varying proportions. Lubricants play a crucial role in sectors such as automotive, aviation, manufacturing, and marine. They are used for the maintenance of both new and old machines and equipment to reduce friction, which increases over time because of the wear and tear of working surfaces. Manufacturers are focusing on improving the effectiveness of lubricants, as this will, in turn, reducing the maintenance cost incurred in machines and equipment while extending their service life. Process oils are derived from crude oil and are mixtures of the naphthenic, paraffinic, and aromatic compounds in varying proportions.
