As soon as the oil vaporizes, the vapors are picked up by absorbent gas and carried out of the still immediately. In other words, Lubrite oils have never been scorched or burned in the distillation process as other oils and retain more lubricating qualities and essentials than any other oils on the market, their makers say.

“To those who are not familiar with refining processes,” said H. S. Weisburgh, president of the Tulsa Lubrite company, “we call to your attention, for instance, a piece of cloth that is scorched when ironing. In a very short time the wearing qualities of the cloth is gone – you have destroyed these wearing qualities of the cloth when you scorched it. Tho same thing results with oil. Refineries destroy wearing qualities of oils when they refine it. They scorch the oil in the refining process. The Lubrite Refining company is the only refinery that has successfully refined lubricating oil at temperature below the boiling point.
