Mechanical impurities are the sum of the amounts of substances that do not melt in the oil and the prescribed solvent in petroleum or petroleum products. Such as mud sand, dust, iron filings, fibers and some insoluble salts. The total sediment refers to all inorganic and organic substances in the oil that are insoluble in solvents (such as toluene) and is one of the specifications of medium and heavy fuel oils.
For light oil, mechanical impurities can block the oil path and cause raw rubber or corrosion; for boiler fuel oil, it will block the nozzle, reduce the combustion efficiency, increase fuel consumption; on the lubricant, it will damage the oil film, increase wear and block the oil Filters to promote the formation of coke and so on.
What is the main problem with precipitation and impurities on the lubricating oil site? Did you know? The Zhunde Lubricant Oiler Xiao Bian tells you that it is caused by the following three aspects:
Due to the impurities existing in the equipment system before the new oil is added, some impurities are often generated in new equipment and long-term equipment. For this purpose, the equipment is generally flushed with washing oil until the impurities contained in the oil are reached. Specified indicators.
The storage, transportation and use of lubricating oil are not performed according to the specified operating requirements, leading to the entry of impurities in these processes and affecting the quality of the oil.
The sediments are mainly high-viscosity internal combustion engine oils with large doses, which will be precipitated in different degrees at low temperatures. The sediment is not an impurity generated after long-term use of the equipment, or the external impurities enter the contaminated oil product, so there is no influence on the normal use of the oil product.
