Hundreds of lubricant additives are available industry-wide to improve base stock properties and protect metal surfaces; however, the wrong combination of these commodities can result in substandard performance. Surface Activity of Petroleum Derived Lubricants explains how surface activity is affected by several factors: the interfacial properties
Conventional Refining of Crude Oils..Nonconventional Processing of Base Stocks. Low Temperature Fluidity of Base Stocks. Oxidation Stability of Base Stocks. Interfacial Properties of Base Stocks. Lubricant Formulation. Effects of Additives on Surface Activity of Turbine Oils. Effects of Base Stocks on Surface Activity of Hydraulic Oils. Surface Activity of Engine Oils. Additive Interactions. Scope and Limits of Lubricant Testing. Lubricant Storage.
