Issue 77: November 2015 Lubes'n'Greases Magazine
Europe, Middle East and Africa


Exotic Materials Challenge Machining Fluids

Machine makers are moving from metal to more novel composites and alloys. To evolve accordingly, formulators of metal removal fluids need to understand how to work with these materials.

Improved Emulsifiers Control Foam, Avoid Labels

Fluid formulators and emulsifier suppliers are facing numerous challenges with regard to performance requirements, regulatory issues and commercial pressures. Emulsifiers used in fluids for modern machines must provide ultra-low foam, while also requiring less onerous labeling.

Faster Blending with Less Energy

GQOil Innovation Europe and Prista Oil recently unveiled a start-up that aims to revolutionize lubricant production by using faster and more energy-efficient blending technology. Key advantages of the new process are reduced time and temperature required to mix finished lubricants.

Challenges & Prospects in East Africa

The East African Community has enjoyed impressive economic growth in recent years. This has enabled countries in the region to invest in infrastructure projects that bode well for the lubricants industry.

Every issue includes breaking news, in-depth features and informed opinions.

LNG EMEA has separate content from its sister magazine, Lubes'n'Greases, but offers the same reliable, unbiased and vital reporting each month.

The print edition is free to qualified subscribers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and is available on a paid-subscription basis elsewhere. The digital edition, an exact replica of the print magazine, is free to qualified subscribers worldwide.
