After the deterioration of the lubricating oil, it is dark black, foamy and emulsified. It is rubbed with fingers, has no sticky feeling, blemishes or odors. It is dark brown on the white test paper, no yellow infiltration area or much black. If it is not replaced in time, it will accelerate the wear and tear of parts, affect the service life, and even cause safety accidents. Therefore, it is especially important to check whether the lubricating oil has deteriorated and replaced in time. Langfeng Graphene Lubricant
Several simple identification methods are introduced as follows:
Oil flow observation method
Take two measuring cups, one of which is filled with the lubricating oil to be inspected, the other is placed on the table, and the measuring cup filled with lubricating oil is lifted off the table 30-40 cm and tilted to allow the lubricating oil to slowly flow to the empty cup. In the middle, observe the flow, the quality of the lubricating oil flow should be slender, even, continuous, if the oil flow suddenly and slowly, and sometimes there is a large flow, then the lubricant has deteriorated.
The lubricant is rubbed repeatedly between the thumb and the index finger. The better lubricant feels lubricated, less wear debris, and no friction. If you feel a large friction between the fingers, it means lubricating oil. There are many impurities inside, can not be reused, should be replaced with new lubricants.
3. Illumination method
On a clear day, use a screwdriver to pick up the lubricating oil at a 45-degree angle to the horizontal. Observe the sunlight and observe the oil droplets. Then, under the light, you can clearly see that there is no wear debris in the lubricating oil, which can continue to work. If there is too much wear debris, the lubricant should be replaced.
4. Oil droplet trace method
Take a clean white filter paper, drop a few drops of oil on the filter paper. After the oil leaks, if there is black powder on the surface, touch the hand with a feeling of resistance, it means that there are many impurities in the lubricant, good. The lubricating oil has no powder, is dry and smooth by hand, and has a yellow mark.
