Biobased Lubricants and Greases: Technology and Products by Lou Honary

By Lou Honary

as a result of the upward thrust in petroleum costs in addition to expanding environmental matters, there's a have to enhance biochemicals and bioproducts that provide practical choices to their conventional opposite numbers; this publication will tackle the inability of a centralized source of knowledge on lubricants and greases from renewable assets, and should be important to a large viewers in and academia. it truly is in response to twenty years of study and improvement on the UNI-NABL heart, and discusses a few of the kinds of vegetable oils on hand, evaluating their features, houses and merits opposed to these of average petroleum oils in addition to discussing universal assessment exams and giving examples and case experiences of winning functions of biobased lubricants and greases. while clinical and engineering examine facts is integrated, the ebook is written in an available demeanour and is illustrated all through.

  • Focuses on an commercial program of lubrication expertise present process present explosive progress within the international market.
  • Includes an in depth overview of the cloth merits of plant-based lubricants that come with a greater viscosity index and lubricity even at severe temperatures, reduce flammability as a result of larger flash issues and decrease pour points.
  • Covers the elemental chemistry of vegetable oils in addition to their profiles to be used in lubricants and greases and environmental benefits.
  • Includes examples and case experiences of the place vegetable-based lubricants were effectively hired in applications.
