Auto & industrial lubricants in Hickory, Lincolnton, Mooresville, Statesville, Boone, NC and surrounding areas.
Whether it’s your car, truck, farm equipment, or factory equipment, your machines work hard for you every day. This hard work can wear your machinery down, which is why you need to be sure it is always properly lubricated.
Lubrication serves many purposes, the first being to reduce friction, or rubbing, between moving parts during a machine’s operation. Friction is a problem for two reasons: one, it causes wear and tear on your machinery, and two, it creates heat, which can lead to more problems. Lubrication also helps decrease corrosion of the metal by preventing water from coming into contact with your metal surfaces.
Another benefit of lubrication is that is removes contaminants. You can try to prevent contaminants from entering your machinery by sealing it, but it’s impossible to keep them all out, not to mention the microscopic pieces that break off from the metal surfaces themselves. Lubricants are specially made to sweep these destructive bits out and away from the surface, preventing wear.
