Lube oil Blending and Filling Plant
A typical blending plant comprsies of the following sections :
- Tank farm
- Blending area
- Storage, Filling And Packing
Base oils from the tank farm are pumped into the blending vessels and mixed with additives at the required temprreature to obtain a homgeous mix.there are several methods to achieve and optimum blend depending on the product and plant requirments. The blended product is then filtered and transferred to storage tanks from where it is taken to the filling station and packed in containers or barreles.the entire process can be carried out in a basic manually operated plant or auotmated plc controled plants.
The lube oils are manufactured to api or other required specifications
Various lubricating base oils are charged into blending vessel through flow indicator cum controller in fixed proportions depending on finished product desired. This is then dehydrated at atmospheric pressure followed by addition of various additives. Subsequently the blended product is filtered through centrifugal filter which retains any particle of size above 2 micron. This may then be filled in packs varying from ½ lit to 210 lit.
Material Balance / Yields
Since the process involved is that of mixing hence losses are minimal, yields being about 99%.
