KG have closed the circle on their raw material cycle by utilising a briquetting press from RUF: cast chips produced during the machining of parts for water supply and sewage disposal are pressed to solid briquettes and then melted in the in-house foundry and ...

  • Sulphur removal from used automotive lubricating oil by ionising radiation

    In this work, gamma radiation was used to remove sulphur from used automotive lubricating oil. The sample was fractioned and irradiated with 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 kGy doses in a 60Co irradiator (Gammacell-220 – 12 kCi). Fifty percent and 70% (v/v) of MilliQ water and 30% (v/v) of hydrogen peroxide were used to improve the radiolysis. The sulphur content, before and after the irradiation, ...

  • X-ray fluorescence analysis of additives and wear metals in used lubricating oils

    The determination of metal concentrations in lubricating oils is a very important diagnostic development. Such analysis dates back over 50 years, when one of its earliest uses was to assess engine oil from trains. Today, the analysis of both new and used lubricating oils, as well as the monitoring of trends in the metal concentrations and additives they contain, has become an essential control. ...

  • Determination of Wear Metals and Additives (Soaps) in Lubricating Oils by Atomic Absorption

    Lubricating & hydraulic fluids are crucial to the proper functioning of many types of machines: automobiles, farm equipment, heavy-duty motors, airplanes, and military hardware. Most “lubes” are simple hydro-carbon based oils or greases that have certain additives in them to prevent wear and abrasion of components (piston rings, bearings, etc.) or oxidation degradation of the oil. These additives ...

  • The Effect of Phosphorus and Boron Lubricant Oil Additives on Catalyst Durability

    With ever-tightening legislation driving down emissions limits, minimisation of catalyst deactivation is very important. Attention has now focused on chemical poisoning of three-way catalysts (TWC) by elements commonly found in engine oil. ...

  • Compressed and free of cooling lubricant - Case Study

    RUF’s briquetting press increases the efficiency of Zollner’s aluminium production Zollner AG compresses more than 100 tons of aluminium chips per year using a RUF briquetting press. The mechatronics service provider thereby reduces the volume of this recyclable material to a fraction and isolates clinging oils and emulsions. By recovering cooling lubricant and thanks to ...

  • OM-1 Oil Mist Eliminators Collect Coolant Mists, Lubricant Mists, Smoke

    A major midwest metalworking facility uses 24 OM-1 Mist Eliminators to collect oil mists from over 200 sources, including grinding, dressing, CNC machining, lathes and heat treating operations.  OM-1's ability to accommodate smoke gives it an advantage over centrifugal-type oil mist collectors, which are not usable for smoke. Both soluble and non-soluble oils are used;  OM-1 collects ...
