Nowadays, machines use engines that are smaller and produces more horsepower than ever before though engines hold less oil volume. Since there are many concerns like turbocharging, supercharging, emissions, congestions, etc., that are not good for your engines’ motors, following are the qualities that one should look for in oil lubricators to provide proper protection in such conditions:
Let’s starts with viscosity. There are many concerns that deal with the viscosity of an oil lubricator. A good lubricator must be able to maintain the viscosity irrespective of the temperature. Even in the fluctuating temperatures, the best quality oil lubricator should be able to maintain its constant viscosity. The pour point of a motor oil helps you identify if it can handle cold temperature without getting solidified.
Oil lubricators that contain paraffin in large quantity, as well as the lubricators with low-quality viscosity and poorly designed additives, will gel at low temperatures. Engines that have high tolerances require oil lubricators that have low pour points and low paraffin to enhance the life of a motor’s engine.
At high temperatures, the oil lubricators should be able to restrain the shearing forces. Shearing forces cause the oil to torn apart on the molecular level. It causes the lubricator drop out of its normal viscosity temperature, which raises the issues such as heat-related damage and volatility of an engine. A good oil lubricator will have the ability to resist the shearing forces and volatilization. Hence, look for lubricators with higher fire or flash points as the points determine the low temperatures that cause volatilizing of an application.
