Friction is always an important issue to be aware of when it comes to machinery and mechanical equipment. To help prevent this potential problem, it’s good to know what machinery lubricant will prove best for the equipment to protect the parts from friction. Mechanical lubricants and mechanical greases are specifically created to minimise friction that happens between metal components.
Machinery lubrication can be split into two main categories, that being lubricating oil and lubricating grease. Depending on the situation, either lubrication may be the best fit for you. It’s important to know exactly what type of machinery you have and pick accordingly.
At Lanotech, we pride ourselves on our commitment to producing environmentally friendly lubricants and natural degreasers. Australia is known for its extreme weather conditions and environment and we are proud to create products that are not only good for the environment, but also are designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate.
You may not be conscious of the environmental impact that the products you’re using may have on your surroundings. That’s why it’s vital to select products that are biodegradable and non-toxic. Utilising a natural degreaser is a good fit when trying to pick the best products that also will be environmentally conscious.
One of the most frustrating aspects of working with machinery and mechanical equipment can be loosening components that have rusted over and become nearly impossible to remove. Some of these parts need specific tools to loosen them and even then, if too much torque is applied to a tough bolt or screw, it can snap clean off so it’s vital to know what other options may exist.
Employing the use of a penetrative oil is a smart choice. These oils are specially designed to soak deep through the rust and loosen rusted components and tools. Penetrative oils are also adept at providing strong and lasting corrosion protection for a range of surfaces, chains and hinges, further proving its importance and securing a place in every good mechanic’s arsenal.
We’ve all heard of it, and most of us probably have a trusty can of WD-40 stored away in a cleaning cupboard somewhere. Yet, as we grow and change as a nation, is WD-40 still the best option or are there WD-40 alternatives that exist and would provide a much better lubricating service? It’s a significant question to ask, to make sure we are all using the best products available.
While WD-40 does have limited lubricating properties, there are absolutely better alternatives for lubricants out there. Using natural, non-toxic, biodegradable WD-40 alternatives such as lubricating oils or natural degreasers are a great step in the right direction. They will lubricate much more effectively and will be a good environmentally-friendly choice.
