Gazpromneft-Lubricants Hosts Technological Workshop at Automechanika in Frankfurt
Gazpromneft Lubricants Ltd., the operator of Gazprom Neft’s oil business, presented advanced lubricant technologies in Frankfurt. Technical workshops were held within the framework of Automechanika 2018, one of the largest industry events in the field of production of spare parts, automotive components, equipment and goods for vehicle maintenance.
The company’s R&D center employees shared the latest trends in the development of the global lubricants market, new technologies and innovative products with the partners from Europe, Africa and Asia as well as media representatives.
In particular, cutting-edge developments in manufacturing of specialized products were presented, for instance, biodegradable oils and lubricants for wind power generation. Particular attention was paid to products that guarantee high fuel efficiency and, thereby, contribute to reducing the harmful environmental impact. As an example, the company presented its G-Special Hydraulic HVLP oils*.
The participants of the event also could observe the operation of the unique portable complex – the mobile laboratory**, that allows conducting a spectral analysis execution of the equipment unit and draw conclusions about its operating state practically in any conditions on the basis of a single oil drop. Similar complexes are used by the company’s employees to work with professional racing teams, trucking enterprises, ore mining and processing plants, and also partner dealer centers.
Nikolay Doroshenko, Head of Product Development and Management Department:
“It is the first time that we participate in such a major industry event using the workshop format. Establishment of an open dialogue has become for us a positive experience in organizing discussions with the professional community and journalists. We are confidently building cooperation with foreign partners, as we have developed substantial expertise in the field of lubricants production, and also have advanced technical services. Our knowledge and experience are in demand not only in the Russian, but also in the international market”.
*G-SPECIAL POWER HVLP – oils designed for the usage in mining, construction, forestry, agricultural machinery, as well as in industrial equipment. They are created with the unique technology in cooperation with Evonik Group (German chemical components manufacturer) and ensure uninterrupted operation of the equipment at extreme high and low temperatures, protecting the hydraulic system and saving fuel. All this helps to increase the efficiency and lifespan of the equipment.
**Mobile laboratory is a unique, compact complex that allows performing the oil spectral analysis directly on a race track. The laboratory is equipped with two high-tech instruments: Fluid Scan IR spectrometer and xSort xRF spectrometer.
