Extending performance limits of turbine oils
2014 (English)In: Tribology International, ISSN 0301-679X, Vol. 69, 52-60 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
New turbine oils providing both extremely high viscosity index (VI) and improved boundary/mixed lubrication performance are investigated. Comparisons are made in both laboratory scale testing using typical journal bearing sliding surfaces (steel and white metal) and full scale testing using a hydrodynamic journal bearing test machine. The results from these studies demonstrate the effectiveness of new, high VI, turbine oils for reducing friction at machine startup and improving performance during full film operation.
