A Comparison of Some Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids and Engine Oils 2002-01-1498

Environmentally friendly fuels and lubricants research on hydraulic fluids, engine oils, greases and industrial applications is of interest to government agencies and manufacturers of equipment, engines and vehicles. The key to increasing the use of renewable natural resources is developing fluids of equivalent performance to petroleum base products, at an acceptable product cost. The well known drawbacks of vegetable oils are oxidation stability and low temperature properties. This study compares commercial fluids and laboratory formulations as to their rheological properties and uses different approaches to solve both the low temperature and the oxidative stability problems. Frictions and wear characteristics of the fluids are evaluated and several fluids are compared laboratory bench tests.
