The CAMCO Lubricants Difference

Why the Right Brand of Industrial Lubricants Matters

How can you save money by spending more on our products, you may ask? The answer is simple: CAMCO Lubricants’ hydrocracked products last four to eight times longer than conventional mineral oils. Not only does longer life result in less overall need for oil but also low volatility also means less lubricant consumption. Therefore, it means less oil consumed, purchased, and less oil for disposal. We have listed a few common questions and answers for our industrial lubricants:

How can CAMCO Lubricants products last four to eight times longer than the oil I’m using now?

Extensive engineering and research goes into the development of a synthetic lubricant to determine the chemical composition of the base stock and additive package needed for each application. Since lubricants must coexist with some chemicals, the selection of additives (chemicals) must be carefully chosen to assure chemical inertness and compatibility.

Synthetic oils are built from the ground up on the molecular level to find the desired qualities that meet your lubrication needs. Importantly, they also meet manufacturers’ specifications while a product or chemical is being pumped or compressed.

Are all synthetic oils alike?

No. There are several base stocks in synthetic lubricants; some are compatible with mineral oils, and some are not. While many synthetic lubricants blends are made from the same base stocks, the additives that are used enhance lubricant performance during the selected task and determine how fluids differ.

Our products are formulated with propriety-additive packages chosen from carefully selected additives, combining the best technology available. All of these set CAMCO Lubricants ahead and apart from the competition.
