EPEALs - Extreme pressure additives in environmentally adapted lubricants

Reference number
Coordinator Luleå tekniska universitet - Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 2 100 000
Project duration September 2008 - August 2012
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

Three overall objectives are increased knowledge, competence and tighter cooperation. The project will be focused on environmentally adapted lubricants and the possibilities to develop tailor made lubricants for a sustainable society. The scientific goal is to formulate a model for the optimisation of additives for the minimisation of wear and control of friction in environmentally adapted lubricants. From the properties of the base liquid and additives, create a basis to predict the function in different lubricated applications.

Results and expected effects

During the project, the partial results will be presented in connection with national and international seminars/conferences. The results will even be published in scientific articles.

Approach and implementation

With a detailed experimental study of a model test, give a basis for validation in a component test. Statistical test planning is used to design the experimental plan. The study comprises synthetic esters with different polarities as well as different additives and different additive concentrations. The study even comprises various materials and contact conditions
