Minerals Oil Analysis

£150.00 +VAT

Minerals Oil Analysis

As the name suggests, mineral oil is derived from minerals, most commonly as a distillate of petroleum. It is more commonly known as liquid paraffin, paraffin oil, or white mineral oil. It is a byproduct of the process of refining crude oil to make petrol and related products. It is used as a mechanical coolant and wood preservative, and is used in the automotive, aviation and rail industries. Mineral oil that has been purified and further refined is commonly used in cosmetics, moisturises, cleansers, baby oils, medical lubricants, laxatives, and also in veterinary products.

Why do we need to test water for mineral oil?

Mineral oil used in mechanical lubricants can coat the inside of your water pipes and cause the formation of sludge which can affect the efficiency of your machinery. As the lubricant degrades, it can produce an acid byproduct which will then attack the equipment.

What are the health risks of mineral oils to humans and animals?

Purified mineral oil is safe to be used topically on humans, but does have health risks if it is ingested. If large amounts are ingested, it can lead to gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach pain. With long-term exposure, there is an increased risk of cancer. 

If large quantities of mineral oils get into the environment, entire ecosystems can be disrupted, with a consequent impact on aquatic life.
