API CD CF Lubricant Oil Blending System With Siemens PLC Control Cabinet
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.
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.
Product to be made from PPGT lube oil blending system: automotive lubricants and industrial lubricants.
Raw materials needed:
*Lube Base Stock
LUBE BASE STOCK: One of the products is base stock, which processed further, provides us with base oil. Base oil is the lubricant that is used to lubricate machines.
This base oil needs to have certain chemicals called additives added to it to enhance its Performance as a good lubricating agent. These additives together perform diverse functions but each additive has a specific use and together they give the lubricant its character. Depending on the engine the lubricants is to be used; the ratio of base oil to additives varies from 85:15 to 90:10.
TYPES OF BASE OILS COULD BE AS THE RAW MATERIALS
Group 1, Group 2, Group 3
SN500, SN 150, SN 70
1, Agitator: Under the action of the agitator, the mixed base oil and additives form the main convection, vortex diffusion mass transfer and molecular diffusion mass transfer, so that all The material properties are uniform. The materials in the tank will move in two directions when the agitator rotates; One is along the axis of the agitator When blocked by the tank wall or the tank bottom, the forward movement of the tank will change its movement direction, and after several times, it will change back to form an approximate circle Circulating flow of the week; The second is the circular motion formed along the rotating direction of the agitator blade, which makes the material roll and finally reaches the mixing uniformity Uniform purpose.
2, Pump Circulating: The materials in the tank are continuously pumped out from the bottom of the tank by the pump, and then returned to the mixing tank. Under the action of the pump, the main convection diffusion and Vortex diffusion makes the oil mix evenly. In order to improve the mixing efficiency and reduce energy consumption, the pump is continuously circulated and mixed in actual production To improve the method.
