Castor oil has been used as a lubricant for decades. Synthetics are termed such due to the altering of the base structure to create a set of molecules that retains advantages or improves on them but minimises the disadvantages of a simply processed oil. This wax still has lubricating properties. High-gravity crude oils contain more of the lighter The most common separation process is distillation, where the components of the crude are separated into several streams based on their boiling temperature. 1, unchanged from 2011, according to American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers' 2012 Lubricating Oil and Wax Capacities Report. Its chemical structure allows it to polymerise at high temperatures to form a sticky wax type material often referred as castor varnish. The significant increase in lube yield over competitive technologies, the ultra-clean finished products, and broad feedstock flexibility propelled ISODEWAXING to become the preferred dewaxing process for lubricant base oil production in the world. Castor Oil would be Why use Castor oil? Base oil capacity in the United States totaled 217,300 barrels per day on Jan.

In the refining process, the crude oil is converted into transportation fuels—gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel fuel—and other petroleum products, such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), heating fuel, lubricating oil, wax, and asphalt. Instead of removing wax molecules (as in solvent dewaxing) or cracking them to light C3-C8 hydrocarbons (as in classic catalytic dewaxing), the ISODEWAXING® Catalyst isomerizes the wax molecules into lube oil.
