EFFECT OF OIL FORMULATIONS IN MINIMIZING VISCOSITY INCREASE AND SLUDGE DUE TO DIESEL ENGINE SOOT
Lubricant field problems due to diesel engine soot have been reported in stop-go vehicles in Europe and the U.S. Soot generated in these vehicles can cause heavy sludge, high lubricant viscosity increase, or oil gelling. In field and dynamometer testing, the authors demonstrate that certain oil formulations minimize these problems. Oils labeled CD/SF/EO-K produce significantly different soot dispersancy and viscosity control. In addition, formulations which provide adequate soot dispersancy also reduce engine wear.
