CO-EFFICIENT OF THERMAL EXPANSION. CHANGE OF DENSITY WITH TEMPERATURE.

31 DISTILLATION THE SIGNIFICANCE OF DISTILLATION RESULTS IS BASED ON CLOSE RELATIONSHIP TO VOLATILITY

32 VOLATILITY THE TENDENCY OF A LIQUID OR LIQUIFIED GAS TO VAPOURISE IS CALLED IT’S VOLATILITY. IT HAS IMPORTANCE DURING COMBUSTION. IT KEEPS THE LIQUID IN GASEOUS STATE. FOR VAPOURIZATION FLASH POINT, FIRE POINT, VAPOUR PRESSURE & EVAPORATION ARE ESSENTIAL.

33 DISTILLATION TEMPERATURES
INITIAL BOILING POINT (IBP) THE TEMPERATURE AT WHICH THE FIRST DROP OF DISTILLATE IS COLLECTED IN THE MEASURING CYLINDER. END POINT OR FINAL BOILING POINT (FBP) THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE RECORDED DURING THE DISTILLATION PROCESS. DRY POINT THE TEMPERATURE AT WHICH THE LAST DROP EVAPOURATES AND THE DISTILLATION FLASK BECOMES DRY DURING THE DISTILLATION PROCESS.

34 DISTILLATION TEMPERATURE (continued)
RECOVERY THE TOTAL VOLUME OF DISTILLATE RECOVERED IN THE CYLINDER. RESIDUE MATERIAL REMAINED IN THE FLASK AFTER DISTILLATION. IF RESIDUE IS HIGH IT GIVES THE INDICATION OF IMPURITY.

35 PHYSICAL TESTS DISTILLATION
DISTILLATION : ASTM D 86/IP-123 / IS 1448 : P18 EQUIPMENT : FRONT VIEW DISTILLATION APPARATUS, STD. THERMOMETER , DISTILLATION FLASK,MEASURING CYLINDER (100 ML) CONTROLS VOLATILITY CHARACTERISTICS OF FUELS. CONTRIBUTES TO : EASE OF STARTING WARM UP AND UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OF FUEL. …..CONTD.

39 PHYSICAL TESTS FLASH POINT
FLASH POINT CONTROLS FLAMMABILITY PROPERTY OF PETROLEUM PRODUCTS - INDICATES DEGREE OF SAFETY IN STORAGE, TRANSPORTATION AND USE. IN USED CRANKCASE OILS LOWER FLASH INDICATES FUEL DILUTION. BASIC CRITICAL TEST FOR FUEL DELIVERIES.

40 FLASH & FIRE POINT IT IS THE TEMPERATURE TO WHICH THE OIL MUST BE HEATED UNDER SPECIFIED TEST CONDITIONS TO GIVE OFF SUFFICIENT VAPOURS TO FORM A MIXTURE WHICH WILL IGNITE IN THE PRESENCE OF A SOURCE OF IGNITION FLASH POINT TEST GIVES AN INDICATION OF PRESENCE OF VOLATILE COMPONENTS IN AN OIL. FIRE POINT IS THE TEMPERATURE AT WHICH THE PRODUCT STARTS BURNING CONTINUOUSLY IT GIVES AN INDICATION OF FIRE HAZARD.

41 INSOLUBLES CONTAMINANTS FOUND IN USED OILS DUE TO DUST, WEAR PARTICLES AND OXIDATION PRODUCTS

42 PHYSICAL TESTS INSOLUBLES
INSOLUBES - ASTM D 893 EQUIPMENT : OIL CENTRIFUGE - CONE SHAPED ML TUBES ANALYTICAL BALANCE - AIR OVEN THIS TEST IS BASICALLY FOR USED LUBRICATING OILS HEXANE INSOLUBLE = CARBON + OXIDISED OIL + RESINS + SEDIMENT BENZENE INSOLUBES = CARBON + SEDIMENT ASH ON BENZENE INSOLUBES; SEDIMENT, SILICA,WEAR METAL PARTICLES. ESSENTIAL TOOL TO JUDGE USED OIL QUALITY.

43 POUR POINT AN INDICATOR OF THE ABILITY OF OIL TO FLOW UNDER COLD OPERATING CONDITIONS

44 CLOUD & POUR POINT 1. CLOUD POINT.
TEMPERATURE AT WHICH THE OIL BECOMES HAZY WHEN COOLED IN A SPECIFIED CONDITION. IT HAS IMPORTANCE WHEN NARROW CLEARANCE MIGHT BE RESTRICTED BY ACCUMULATION OF SOLID MATERIAL EX-SUCTION LINE STRAINERS, SMALL SIZE OIL-FEED LINES OR FILTERS.

45 CLOUD & POUR POINT POUR POINT IS THE LOWEST TEMPERATURE AT WHICH THE OIL WILL JUST FLOW UNDER SPECIFIC TEST CONDITIONS. IT'S USE IS FOR LOW TEMPERATURE APPLICATION. POUR POINT OF WAXY OILS CAN BE REDUCED BY POUR POINT DEPRESSANT (PPD) SIGNIFICANCE IN REFRIGERATION COMPRESSOR LUBRICANTS & AUTOMOTIVE ENGINE OILS.

FIRST APPEARANCE OF WAX IS CLOUD POINT. CONTINUED CHILLING INCREASES WAX PRECIPITATION AND ENDS IN MATRIX FORMATION. THIS MATRIX OF WAX STRUCTURE ARRESTS OIL FLOW. ……CONTD.

47 PHYSICAL TESTS POUR POINT
POUR POINT CONTROLS FLOW CHARACTERISTICS AND PUMPABILITY PROPERTY. POUR DEPRESSANTS RETARD MATRIX FORMATION AND CONTRIBUTE TO LOWERING OF POUR POINT AND INCREASE FLOW PROPERTIES.

48 PHYSICAL TESTS RESIDUE ON EVAPORATION
RESIDUE ON EVAPORATION : ASTM D 381 / IP 131 / IS 1448 P 29 EQUIPMENT : EXISTENT GUM BATH WITH PR.GAUGE & THERMOMETER - STD. GUM BEAKER - ANALYTICAL BALANCE - AIR OVEN. TEST IS APPLICABLE TO FUELS & SOLVENTS. ALL FUELS CONTAIN CERTAIN UNSATURATED HYDROCARBONS. …..CONTD.

49 PHYSICAL TESTS RESIDUE ON EVAPORATION
THESE COMBINE WITH THEMSELVES AND WITH OXYGEN TO FORM NON VOLATIE STICKY SUBSTANCES CALLED GUM. GUM DEPOSITS IN ENGINE PARTS. - CARBURETTER & INTAKE SYSTEM (INTAKE MANIFOLD - VALVE STEMS, SEATS ETC) - RESTRICTS FLOW THROUGH CARBURETTER JETS, FLOAT STICKING AND IN EXTREME CASES VALVE STICKING.

50 VISCOSITY VISCOSITY OF A FLUID IS A MEASURE OF ITS RESISTANCE TO FLOW. VISCOSITY AND VISCOSITY VARIATION WITH CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE ARE IMPORTANT FACTORS FOR ESTABLISHING PERFORMANCE STANDARD OF LUBE OILS

51 VISCOSITY MEASURE OF FLOW CHARACTERISTICS.
VISCOSITY CHANGES WITH TEMPERATURE. IT FORMS BY THE COHESION OF FORCE OF MOLECULES. AS THE PRESSURE INCREASES VISCOSITY INCREASES. VISCOSITY INCREASE IN USED OIL INDICATES THAT THE OIL HAS OXIDISED. VISCOSITY DECREASE USUALLY INDICATES DILUTION BY FUEL.

52 PHYSICAL TESTS VISCOSITY
VISCOSITY = ASTM D 445 / IP 71 / IS P25 MEASUREMENT OF RESISTANCE TO FLOW. EQUIPMENT : CONSTANT TEMPERATURE VISCOSITY BATH ,CALIBRATED CAPILLARY GLASS VISCOMETERS, STOP WATCH. UNITS OF VISCOSITY : ABSOLUTE, CENTI POISE, KINEMATIC,CENTI STOKES RELATIONSHIP : CENTI POISE=CENTISTOKESXDENSITY @ TEMPERATURE LUBE OILS ARE CONTOLLED AT 40°C AS PER ISO VISCOSITY SYSTEM. = VISCOSITY FORMS BASIS FOR SELECTION OF LUBRICANTS. = VISCOSITY CHANGES REFLECT USED OIL CONDITION.

53 VISCOSITY INDEX VISCOSITY OF PETROLEUM BASE OILS DECREASES WITH A RISE IN TEMPERATURE. INDICATES THE EFFECTS OF CHANGE OF TEMPERATURE ON THE VISCOSIY OF OIL. STANDARD PARAFFINIC OIL HAVE VI=100. STANDARD NAPHTHENIC OIL HAVE VI=0. VI OF AN OIL IS OF IMPORTANCE IN IT’S APPLICATION WHERE AN APPRECIABLE CHANGE IN THE TEMPERATURE OF LUBE OIL COULD AFFECT THE START-UP.

54 PHYSICAL TESTS VISCOSITY INDEX
VISCOSITY INDEX : ASTM D 2270 / IP 226 / IS 1448 P 56. NUMERICAL EVALUATION OF THE PROPERTY OF RESISTING CHANGES IN VISCOSITY DUE TO CHANGES IN TEMPERATURE. MEASUREMENT : VI = L - U X 100 L - H VI CAN BE OBTAINED FROM READYMADE ASTM TABLES. = HELPS IDENTIFICATION OF TYPE OF BASE STOCK = CRITERIA FOR SELECTION OF OIL FOR WIDE OPERATING TEMPERATURE = PRIME INDICATION OF HIGH QUALITY - BETTER OXIDATION RESISTANCE

EQUIPMENT : DEAN & STARK WATER CONTENT APPARATUS ,HOT PLATE , BALANCE TRACE MOISTURE IN OIL IS FOUND BY CRACKLE TEST PETROLEUM PRODUCTS PICK UP WATER DURING STORAGE, HANDLING AND CONDENSATION FROM ATMOSPHERE. PRESENCE OF WATER IN USED OILS INDICATE PROBABLE LEAKAGE IN COOLING SYSTEM OR STEAM GLANDS IN TURBINE. WATER WHEN PRESENT FORMS EMULSION & SLUDGE - CLOGS SUCTION SCREEN, OIL COOLER & FILTERS. WATER IS A DEADLY ENEMY FOR DETERGENT OILS.

56 RESEARCH OCTANE NUMBER
A MEASURE OF FULES ABILITY TO PREVENT DETONATION IN A SPARK IGNITION ENGINE

57 OCTANE NO... AUTOMOTIVE GASOLINES ARE ESSENTIALLY BLENDS OF HYDROCARBONS DERIVED FROM PETROLEUM. SELECTED ADDITIVES ARE ADDED TO IMPART SPECIFIC FEATURES TO MS. GASOLINES ARE BLENDED TO SATISFY DIVERSE AUTOMOTIVE REQUIREMENTS. ANTIKNOCK RATING, DISTILLATION CHARECTERISTICS, VAPOUR PRESSURE, SULPHUR, OXIDATION STABILITY AND ANTICORROSION BEHAVIOUR ARE WELL BALANCED TO PROVIDE SATISFACTORY EHICLE PERFORMANCE.

58 OCTANE NO... PREMIUM 93 OCTANE REGULAR 87 OCTANE
IF ANTI-KNOCK RATING IS TOO LOW KNOCK OCCURS. KNOCK IS A HIGH PITCH METTALIC RAPPING NOISE. KNOCK DEPENDS ON COMPLEX PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PHENOMENA; HIGHLY INTERRELATED WITH ENGINE DESIGN AND OPERATING CONDITIONS.

59 OCTANE NO... KNOCK IN AN ENGINE IS A FORM OF ABNORMAL COMBUSTION WHERE AIR/FUEL CHARGE IN THE CYLINDER IGNITES SPONTANEOUSLY IN A LOCALISED AREA INSTEAD OF BEING CONSUMED PROGRESSIVELY BY THE SPARK INITIATED FLAME FRONT. KNOCKING COMBUSTION CAN DAMAGE THE ENGINE AND GIVE SERIOUS POWER LOSS IF ALLOWED TO PERSIST.

60 CHEMICAL TESTS NEUTRALISATION NUMBER
NEUTRALISATION NUMBER - BY I) COLOUR - INDICATOR TITRATION ASTM D 974 / IP 139 / IS P :2 II)POTENTIOMETRIC TITRATION - ASTM D 664 / IP177 / IS P :1 ASTM D 2896 / IP 276 / IS 1448 P :86 NEUTRALISATION NUMBER IS A MEASURE OF ACIDITY OR ALKALINITY IN OIL - REPORTED AS EQUIVALENT mg KOH / gm OF OIL.
