PLC automatic lubricant oil blending machine with additives
The principle of lubricating oil blending is as follows:
1. The base oil, various additives, anti-oxidation, anti foaming, anti-wear agent and tackifier of lubricating oil shall be prepared according to the formula of lubricating oil. Fully mix, and then sample according to the product standard. After the analysis and inspection are qualified, the blending is successful.
2. Lubricating oil is generally composed of base oil and additives. Base oil is the main component of lubricating oil, which determines the basic properties of lubricating oil. Additives can make up for and improve the performance of base oil, give some new properties, and are an important part of lubricating oil.
3. The base oil and additives are added into the mixing tank according to the production process formula, heated and stirred, so that the components are fully mixed, and the temperature is moderate and under PurePath PLC automatic control. Generally, the maximum use temperature of the additives is not more than 70 ° C, or the oil with high temperature is easy to oxidize. After mixing, samples are taken to test the indicators, especially the viscosity, and can be filled after passing the test.
Product to be made from PPGT lube oil blending system: automotive lubricants and industrial lubricants.
Lubricating oil should have the following properties:
They should not change their viscosity as operating temperature changes should not easily oxidize and produce sludge’s and gums, should protect engine parts from corrosion, should also act as coolants that take away frictional heat, should have detergent properties that keep the machine surfaces clean by constantly removing and dispersing foreign matter etc.
The most important physical characteristics of lube oil are viscosity and flash point. The oil should be viscous enough to prevent metal contact besides reducing viscous drag. Flashpoint is the temperature at which oil forms an ignitable mixture with air when it is heated underspecified conditions. It denotes the presence of volatile constituents in oil and is indicative of the temperature up to which it can safely be used.
