Treatment VS. Oil
ENVIRO-SAVE METAL TREATMENT is a resin
type metal treatment, and uses the lubricant and also fuel in case of an
engine as the carrier medium to distribute the Enviro-Save treatment.
Results of comparative tests, using a bearing test machine, are invariably
inferior because the effect of the treatment is only evident after a
sufficient impregnation period. When the impregnation running time is
afforded to the piece the load carrying ability is generally superior to
that obtained from oil additives/treatments.
of Oil Additives
ADDITIVES/TREATMENTS, WHILE PRODUCING AN UNDISPUTED BENEFIT, CAN
ALSO CREATE NEGATIVE RESULTS CAUSED BY THE ADDITIVE INGREDIENT
ITSELF. Oil additives usually come under the classifications of:
||Oil blended with chlorine
compounds show an increase in film strength. It is common for
those selling chlorine based oil additives to demonstrate the high
film strength on the TIMKEN or similar bearing test machine.
However, the most stable of chlorine compounds, when burned on
cylinder surfaces or piston tops, FORM HYDROCHLORIC ACID WHICH IS
CORROSIVE. It is also known that chlorides add to oil drag!
||These enhance film strength.
However, in high temperatures and in the presence of moisture they
can brake down, causing corrosion and high resistance in motion
||They also likewise break down
with the result being corrosive phosphorous acid.
||At elevated temperatures the
oil film will break and the bearings seize. Invariably, the
presence of the above materials, which increase the extreme
pressure (E.P.) qualities of lubricants, also cause it to have
HIGH DRAG and produce BEARING FATIGUE. Therefore, some additives /
treatments which are common in use could produce relatively RAPID
metal treatment treats the metal only and does not change the
characteristics of oils. Some oil additives/treatments claim to be
metal treatments, but the evident immediate increase in the film
strength when demonstrated on a bearing testing machine, and the
necessity to add it repeatedly to the lubrication system, prove
that they are actually oil additives/treatments, not metal
treatments, and probably fall into one of the above classifications.
