Možnosti využití elektronového urychlovače pro testování mazacích médií
The article deals with selected results of a pilot project on the research of changes in the kinematic viscosity of mineral oils due to the exposition to ionizing radiation. Lubricating media are essential for the operation of energy sources and their functional systems (internal combustion engines, gear units, hydraulic systems, etc.). Their functional properties, base oil and used additives (detergents, dispersants, anti-corrosion and anti-wear additives, viscosity modifiers, polymer swelling agents, adhesion promoters, oxidation inhibitors, metal deactivators, anti-fouling agents, etc.) significantly affect the reliability and durability of energy sources and their systems.
