Lubricants for manufacturing: Our product catalogue overview

Certas Lubricant Solutions supplies the largest range of oils, greases and lubricants for manufacturers. You can be confident that our team will get the right specification products to ensure the optimum efficiency, productivity and performance of your equipment. Below are some of the products that we supply: 

Our hydraulic oil is vital for machinery and equipment that is being subjected to high-pressure situations, heavy-load bearings, and extreme heat. Hydraulic oil is crucial as it enables the transfer of energy and power. The associated additives combat friction, corrosion and foaming. This makes hydraulic oil a vital component in the operating and maintenance of machinery and equipment.

Our team will help you to get the best by understanding your exact manufacturing specification. Our carefully selected additives provide excellent protection against oxidation, degradation, rust, corrosion, and premature wear.

Contamination, corrosion and friction can all reduce the efficiency of a gear box. The right gear oil will prevent these issues and it will maximise gear box capabilities, prevent damage, and increase overall output. 

Our team help you to get the best industrial gear oil for your requirements and delivered quickly.

Compressor oils are formulated with high-quality base oils and carefully-selected performance additives. We supply compressor oils that will provide you with excellent protection against oxidation degradation, rust and corrosion and foaming.

Slideway oil is a series of high-performance oils that is recommended for the lubrication of metal and plastic slideways. Slideway oils can also be used in hydraulic systems, as a chain oil in circulating lubrication systems, and for the lubrication of conveyor belts. Our slideway oils have excellent anti-wear capabilities, low frictional properties, adhesiveness, filterability and water-separating capabilities. The excellent lubrication enables smooth traverse and tool slide without judder or ripples: avoiding scrap components.  

Gas engine oils formulated to meet the requirements of newer ‘lean burn’ engines.

Cutting oils encompassing both water soluble and neat oil based fluids for a wide variety of operating conditions, processes and metals.

It is important to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the type of oil to use in your refrigeration system, as using the wrong type of oil can cause damage to the system and reduce its efficiency. Certas Lubricant Solutions help you to choose refrigeration compressor oils that will improve heat transfer and improve oil life, resulting in improved equipment reliability and efficiency.

Preventing rust is important to maintain the strength, functionality, and appearance of metal items and to extend their lifespan. This can be achieved through the use of rust preventatives. Our team take the time to understand your needs and find the best rust-preventative solution for your manufacturing operation. 

Grease is a type of lubricant that is commonly used in manufacturing to reduce friction, wear, and heat generation between moving parts. 

Grease is formulated to provide excellent protection against wear caused by heavy-load or shock-load operation.

Q8 Brunel range goes from strength to strength

Since their introduction to the Brunel range of metalworking fluids, Q8 Brunel XF741 and Q8 Brunel XF753 have raised the game for industrial customers across the UK.  Both products have been developed to suit end users who cannot afford to compromise on performance yet require a cutting fluid with a safety profile second to none. 

Fluid Management

Choosing the correct metalworking fluid with the right balance of safety and performance is an important step in improving productivity and protecting employees. It is vital to appreciate that the composition of a metalworking fluid changes in use. 

It is therefore crucial to monitor metalworking fluids to maximise product performance and meet health and safety requirements. A full fluid condition monitoring programme is the best way to achieve this.

Certas Lubricant Solutions can advise you on the best way to set up an efficient fluid monitoring programme. This will help minimise unscheduled maintenance, increase coolant life and optimise performance, resulting in improved productivity and reduced machine downtime.

80% maintenance cost reduction through correct lubricant use

The wrong lubricant usage is often a hidden cost in the manufacturing operation. However, the wrong lubricant results in excessive maintenance costs, reduced operational performance, and increased breakdowns. 

For UK-manufacturer of Jubilee brand clamp, Jubilee Clips Ltd, we delivered an 80% reduction on their cost of maintenance through ensuring the right lubricant use and application.
