Improvement of axle-oil quality by antioxidant additives

  • 15 Accesses


  1. 1.

    The effect of various classes of antioxidant additive on the thermal-oxidation stability of high viscosity axle-oil was studied.

  2. 2.

    It was shown that unrefined mineral oil (axle-oil) has satisfactory response to amine-type antioxidant additives. The most effective additive investigated was phenothiazine.
