Base oil is the name given to Lubrication Oil grades that it produced by means of refining Crude Oil. During heating crude oil processing, light & heavy hydrocarbons are separated and the heaviest are suitable to generate Bitumen and Base Oil. Base Oils are used to manufacture products including lubricating greases, motor oil and metal processing fluids. Different products require different compositions and properties in the oil. One of the most important factors is the liquid’s viscosity at various temperatures. Whether or not a crude oil is suitable to be made into a base oil is determined by the concentration of base oil molecules as well as how easily these can be extracted. In various viscosity range including (Virgin & Recycle):
SN100 SN150 SN300 SN350 SN500 SN600 SN650 SN900 Types of Base Oil that most exported from Iran are SN 100, SN 150 and SN 500. Base Oils are available for sale in bulk and various packages Such as drum, flexi-tank and IBC.
