Highlighting the major economic and industrial changes in the lubrication industry since the first edition, Synthetics, Mineral Oils, and Bio-Based Lubricants, Second Edition outlines the state of the art in each major lubricant application area. Chapters cover trends in the major industries, such as the use of lubricant fluids, growth or decline of market areas and applications, potential new applications, production capacities, and regulatory issues, including biodegradability, toxicity, and food production equipment lubrication. In a single, unique volume, Synthetics, Mineral Oils, and Bio-Based Lubricants, Second Edition offers property and performance information of fluids, theoretical and practical background to their current applications, and strong indicators for global market trends that will influence the industry for years to come.The available service life for gear lubricants are a reflection of the basestock stability, additive stability (antiwear, EP), and solubility of thermal degradation products. ... These include the L-60/L-60-1 thermal oxidation stability test (ASTM D5704), the Mack Cycling durability transmission ... In field trials and selected fleet monitoring, in heavy-duty nonsynchronized manual transmission use (350 HP engine, anbsp;...
