9 main uses
Used in the manufacture of washing powder, synthetic detergents, synthetic petroleum protein, pesticide emulsifiers, etc.
10 refining methods
It is obtained by taking the light lubricating oil fractions of 250-400 ° C in crude oil through the processes of acid-base refining, water washing, drying, white clay adsorption, and adding antioxidants. Dewaxing should also be used when using paraffin-based crude oil. In order to reduce the freezing point of the insulating oil, an appropriate amount of a pour point depressant can be added. Taking different distillate oils from crude oil and controlling the concentration, dosage, action time, and other related processes of sulfuric acid in the refinement, transformer oil, capacitor oil, cable oil, switch oil, etc. can be obtained with different uses. Instead of acid-base refining, solvent refining or solvent refining combined with hydrorefining can also be used. Mineral oils should be controlled to an appropriate refining depth. Inadequate refining cannot remove harmful impurities in the oil; overrefining will excessively remove the natural antioxidants and aromatic hydrocarbon components in the oil, reducing its stability and gettering properties, which has a particular impact on cable oil and capacitor oil . In order to improve the arc extinguishing ability of switching oil, the aromatic content in the oil should be reduced as much as possible. 
11 types of white oil
Some areas of mineral oil are called white mineral oil or white oil. Industrial grade white oil, cosmetic grade white oil, medical grade white oil, and food grade white oil are commonly used. Different types of white oil also differ in their uses.
Industrial grade white oil is a base oil produced by hydrocracking as a raw material. It is obtained after deep dewaxing and chemical refining processes. It can be used in chemical, textile, chemical fiber, petrochemical, power, agriculture, etc. PS, PU and other production.
Food grade white oil is based on mineral oil, which is obtained after deep chemical refining and edible alcohol extraction. Suitable for the lubrication of processing equipment of food industry such as grain and oil processing, fruits and vegetables processing, dairy products processing, bread cutting machines, etc. , Biscuits, chocolate and other food release agents, can extend the storage and freshness period of wine, vinegar, fruits, vegetables, canned food.
Medical grade white oil, suitable for the pharmaceutical industry, can be used as an internal preparation for the production of laxatives and an antifoam for the production of penicillin.
Cosmetic-grade white oil is obtained after deep refining using hydrogenated raw materials. It is suitable for the cosmetic industry and can be used as a base oil for hair creams, hair oils, lipsticks, facial oils, skin care oils, sunscreen oils, baby oils, and creams and softeners.
Cosmetic-grade white oil can be used as an antistatic agent, emollient, solvent, solvent, and hydrocarbon, which can increase the moist feeling, but cannot directly improve dry and damaged skin. There are various opinions on whether mineral oils harm the skin, but it is certain that impure ones can cause allergies and acne-causing properties, and those who are already hurting or sensitive skin should avoid using them. Because of its color and characteristics, it is often used in white paste medicine or skin care products.
Disadvantages of mineral oils compared to synthetic oils
Synthetic oils are specially formulated to withstand the harsh conditions that modern engines endure. They are easier to flow freely than traditional mineral oils. This advantage brings greatly enhanced engine protection. When the engine starts, mineral oil needs a certain amount of time to circulate, which causes friction between the dry parts of the engine and ultimately reduces the service life of the engine.
In contrast, synthetic motor oil begins to cycle immediately at the moment of starting, protecting every moving part in the engine. Synthetic motor oils also improve fuel economy. They get to work faster, so engines can reach peak operating efficiency faster, while traditional mineral oils take longer to cycle, making engines less efficient and running out of oil.
Another advantage of synthetic motor oils is that they are cleaner and more environmentally friendly-they help reduce engine emissions compared to conventional motor oils. Conventional motor oils also contain significantly larger amounts of impurities, such as sulfur, easily reactive and unstable hydrocarbons, and other unhelpful pollutants that cannot be completely removed by traditional crude oil refining. In all these important areas, synthetic motor oils easily outperform traditional mineral oils.
13 Human hazards
Mineral oil is not absorbed or digested in the human intestine, and at the same time, it can prevent the absorption of water. It is used as a lubricating laxative in medicine to treat constipation in the elderly or children. Large intake can cause soft stools and diarrhea; long-term intake can cause digestive tract disorders, affecting the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, K, and calcium and phosphorus. It is extremely harmful to the human body, it will bring out all the fat-soluble vitamins in the human body, making them unable to be absorbed by the human body. Edible mineral oil will cause a serious lack of vitamins A, D, E, and K in the human body, resulting in a series of lesions.
General exposure and use of mineral oils are generally safe for humans. The FDA has also approved the use of mineral oils in personal care and cosmetics, and can also be used as food additives, not exceeding 10 mg / kg. The World Health Organization defines mineral oil as "untreated or low-grade processed industrial products" as a type of carcinogen No. 1.
