Blending Plants for Specialty Fluids and Additives

Brake Fluid Manufacturing Plants

Capacity: 1,000 TO 10,000 LTRS/DAY

Frigmaires offers complete plant and technology for the production of Brake Fluids. These plants are designed to meet international specifications like FMVSS 116- DOT3, DOT4, DOT5, DOT5.1; SAE-J1703, J1704, J1705; ISO-4025, JIS-K-2233 etc; and as per OEM specifications.

The key differences in the brake fluid are mentioned below:

ERBP (Boiling Point)

Kinematic viscosity

All brake fluids (DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 5 & DOT 5.1) must meet a minimum viscosity test of not less than 1.5 centistokes at 100° C and must not be more than the following to meet their various classifications


The Brake Fluids are available in various colours. For e.g., Brake Fluid DOT 3 is available in clear, Pale Yellow, Blue & Crimson Red colour, similarly brake fluid DOT 4 is available in Clear, Pale Yellow & Crimson Red colour, brake fluid DOT 5.1 is available in Clear, Pale Yellow & Blue colour. Brake Fluid DOT 5 is available in Purple & Violet colour. Hence, colour is not a criterion to distinguish between the different types of brake fluids. The colour is added in brake fluid to detect the leakage easily. The colour does not affect the quality of brake fluid.


There are two type of brake fluids-Petroleum (mineral oil) base and non-petroleum base. Non-petroleum based brake fluid is more commonly used in the automobile industry. FMVSS-116 brake fluid specification is based upon non-petroleum products, which is a universally accepted brake fluid specification. Most commonly, brake fluids are classified as DOT3, DOT4, DOT 5 and DOT 5.1. DOT 5 is a silicone base brake fluid.

Coolants & Antifreeze Making Plants

Capacity: 1,000 TO 10,000 LTRS/DAY

Coolants and Antifreeze protects engines from overheating or freezing. They also lubricate the moving parts like the water pump, head gaskets, cylinder and piston. Both products transfer heat and antifreeze protection to an engine so your car can keep running in optimal condition. Engine coolant is used in conjunction with a liquid cooling system. The liquid cooling system is made up of several components like the water pump, the radiator, the fan, and the thermostat. When the engine is running the coolant continuously cools the engine from overheating or freezing in the case of an antifreeze. Coolant is basically a mixture of Ethylene Glycol or Propylene glycol mixed with water and additives. Coolants are also used for many other heat transfer applications, such as HVAC chillers and solar water heaters. The purpose of the coolant is to prevent a rigid enclosure from undergoing physical stresses and catastrophic deformation at extreme temperatures. Compounds are added to the water to reduce the freezing point of the mixture below the lowest temperature that the system is likely to be exposed to, and to inhibit corrosion in cooling systems. The term engine coolant is widely used in the automotive industry, which covers its primary function of conductive heat transfer.

Transformer Oil Plants


Transformer Oils are electrical insulating oils produced by distillation of virgin paraffinic and naphthenic crude oils followed by modern technologies involving high-pressure hydrogenation and hydro-treatment. Further processing involves removal of moisture and polar impurities to obtain good electrical properties. The technologies result in products with very low pour point, excellent oxidation stability, cooling characteristics and electrical properties.

Naphthenic mineral oil has long been the most preferred insulating liquid for power transformer insulation because it has a good pouring point at low temperatures, good thermal cooling capacity, low cost, high efficiency, and availability on the transformers market. Transformer oil insulates and cools transformers. It’s used primarily in transformers with a primary objective of providing electrical insulation between the primary and secondary coils, but can also be found in other electrical equipment, such as high voltage switches and circuit breakers. Transformer oil must be able to remain stable at high temperatures for long periods of times.
Dissipation of heat generated during the process is also an important function. Electrical insulation is favored by high viscosity and heat dissipation is favored by low viscosity and circulation of fluid. Transformer Oils are very sensitive to contamination by water or dirt and fibres as there is serious loss of electrical properties resulting into ‘Arcing’ and dielectric breakdown. It does not cause immediate damage to the machine but damages the oil. These small arcs expose the oil to a very high corona temperature for split second, resulting into thermal breakdown of oil constituent’s. Thermal breakdown and oxidative degradation of oil could be reduced by incorporation of appropriate low temperature oxidation inhibitors and additives. Some users insist upon ‘uninhibited’ products in some cases oxidation inhibitors are to be blended.

Performance standards for transformer oils are set by IEC, CIGRE and BIS committees in setting performance standards for transformer oils. The newly introduced corrosive sulphur standards are as per IEC 62535, DIN 51353, ASTM D 1275 and CIGRE TF A2. 32.01.

Most common specifications for Inhibited, Uninhibited and K class Transformer oils are IEC 296, IEC 335, IEC 60296, BS 148, ASTM D 3487, ASTM D 5222 IS 33 and , IS 16659

VI Blending Plants

CAPACITY: 1,000- 50,000 LTRS/DAY

Frigmaires offers complete plant and technology for manufacturing Viscosity Index Improvers for Lubricants. The viscosity index is a measure of a fluid’s change in viscosity relative to its change in temperature. Viscosity index improvers resist the thinning that occurs in a lubricant as the temperature is increased. These additives are polymeric molecules that are sensitive to temperature. Simply put a viscosity index improver (VII)/ Modifier helps a lubricant from becoming too “thin” at high temperatures. If a lubricant decreases in viscosity and becomes too thin, the protective properties are diminished which leads to equipment damage and wear. This ensures the lubricant fully protects the equipment at both low and high temperatures. Viscosity improvers also allow for the formulation of multigrade oils which removes the need for seasonal oil changes.


Capacity: 1,000 TO 10,000 LTRS/DAY

Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF; also known as AUS 32 and marketed as AdBlue) is an additive used for reducing exhaust emissions from diesel powered engines installed in Automobiles and Heavy vehicles. The fluid is injected into the system to reduce the NOX, (nitrogen Oxides) which are harmful for the environment. The DEF injected along with the exhaust gases into a SCR catalyst (Selective Catalytic Reduction catalyst) converts and reduces the NOX to harmless Nitrogen and Water vapour to meet Euro 6 standards. The amount injected is mainly dependent on the speed and load of the engine. The temperature of the exhaust gas converts DEF into ammonia which in turn reduces the NOX by over 95%. DEF is more or less mandatory for all new diesel-powered engines such as passenger cars, trucks, tractors, excavators, trains, agricultural equipment and even ships. All cars equipped with SCR technologies must use DEF. Usage of DEF is approximately 5 Litres to every 100 Litres of Diesel.

The product is sold to AdBlue stations in 20 Liters, 235 Liters or in 1000 Liters packs.
