The processing of creating lubricating oil from crude oil in refineries in, Indiana, United States. Crude oil is taken to the refineries from various oil field through pipelines and tank cars. Smoke from the chimneys of refineries. The first method in the processing of lubricating oil is the distillation of the crude oil in pipe stills. Animation shows the distillation in a simple shell still. Distillation of the other non-lubricating parts from the crude oil. As the temperature rises, the steam is turned into still. It lowers the boiling point and prevents the 'cracking' process. Then the light lubricating oil condenses first and then the heavier portion. The remainder called the 'residuum' is sent to the asphalt department for further refining into asphalt, road oil. A still man controls the operation of the distillation process at the 'receiving house'.
