Abstract [en]

The rheological and tribological performances of two different polyisobutenes and a heavy viscous naphthenic oil (T 4000) were studied using a new tribometer. The results were compared with measurements carried out by a more established tribometer, a Mini Traction Machine. A general agreement between the two tribology techniques used, the Mini Traction Machine from PCS Instruments and the tribo-cell from Paar Physica, was obtained. All three high viscosity lubricants showed good lubrication properties at lower speeds for both Steel/PTFE and Steel/Steel contacts. The range of speeds where good lubrication was achieved increased with temperature as the viscosity of the lubricants decreased. The behavior of T 4000 was more or less similar regardless the running temperature, while in the case of polyisobutenes the dependency on the temperature was more obvious.
