Industrial Gear Oils from Renegerable Feed Stocks
Antonescu, Niculae Napoleon
The aim of this research study is to obtain industrial gear oils. The formulation of this type of lubricant is based on vegetable oils or mixtures of vegetable oils with more stable base oils and appropriate additives. The study evaluates the laboratory testing results regarding vegetable oil-based lubricating characteristics and oils obtained from base oil mixture and suitable additives. The extreme pressure, antiwear properties and biodegradability of the industrial gear oils composed of vegetable and mineral oils mixtures or vegetable and synthetic oils mixtures are acceptable.
