Nanomaterials, and in particular graphene, significantly increase the basic tribological characteristics of lubricants. One of the most effective ways to quickly use laboratory results on an industrial scale is to modify traditional lubricants with graphene concentrates. The research results showed that in order to solve this problem successfully, it is necessary to create graphene concentrate and distribute it evenly over the total volume of the lubricant. It is necessary that the concentrate be prepared on the same basis as the lubricant. In the present work, previous studies on the mechanical activation and exfoliation of graphite in a core drum mill, liquid-phase shear exfoliation in a rotary apparatus with moving blades, and the homogenization of graphene nanostructures in lubricants using a rotary mixer are combined. Changes were made to the design of the main components, taking into account the use of this technology in the industry. The presented technology is environmentally friendly, since only oil and graphite are used and there are no harmful wastes that must be disposed of.
