At Universal Supplies (Clydesdale) Ltd we supply hydraulic oil and lubricants in Glasgow and the UK as well as accessories.
Hydraulic oils perform many different functions in order to help the hydraulic devices work smoothly. Aside from acting as a medium to transmit the force of pressure and motion, hydraulic oils also lubricates parts that undergo friction; hydraulic oils seals, cools and prevents rust, they are just as important in plant and machinery as pumps, motors, filters and valves. The type of hydraulic oils used is selected based on two conditions; the climate of the location where the equipment will be used, and the design of the various devices in the hydraulic system.
Hydraulic oils and transmission fluids are used in a variety of applications and industries; some are used with combustion engines, processing equipment, compressors, piston pumps, gears, and final drives. Industrial hydraulic oil and transmission fluids can inhibit oxidation, corrosion, or microbial growth; provide sealing or barrier functions; or dampen shock and vibration.
Transmission fluids lubricate gearbox assemblies where power is transmitted from an engine to a driving axle.
We are able to offer many different grades of oil to suit your needs e.g highly refined mineral, synthetic, biodegradable, fire resistant, low zinc and food grade hydraulic oils containing anti-oxidant, anti-foam, anti-rust and a high level of anti-wear additives.
(Recommended for heavy duty hydraulics)
Industrial lubricants are oils, fluids, greases and other compounds designed to reduce friction, binding or wear and exclude moisture. Specialised characteristics may enhance thermal conduction across thermal interfaces or reduce electrical resistivity across electrical joints.
Industrial lubricants that provide sealing exclude moisture, water or gas from joints or machines. This provides a degree of corrosion protection for both internal and external surfaces.
Lubricants are also used in mould release agents and as anti-loading additives on abrasive products. They are available in a variety of forms such as low viscosity oils, greases (high viscosity), waxes, solid lubricant powders and high temperature silicates. Lubricating oils often consist of natural oils, synthetic silicone oils, petroleum based compounds, or combinations with wax or solid lubricant dispersions.
