NanoVit® is a physically effective additive for lubricating fluids. It improves the hydrodynamic lubrication. The hydrodynamic lubricating film is created earlier and has a significantly higher load capacity – the mixed friction that increases wear and friction is for the most part avoided. NanoVit® oil structures also exhibit a lower fluid friction – there is less friction in the lubricating gap. NanoVit® is already effective at very low application concentrations.
What are the effects of NanoVit®?
- reduced system friction – hence improved efficiency
- increased load capacity of the lubricating film
- less wear due to more stable hydrodynamic lubrication and thus optimum separation of the sliding surfaces.
- less abrasive wear
- reduced material fatigue (“pitting”)
- reduced tribo-oxidation due to chemical EP additives
- reduced vibration in the system – less noise
- lower stressing of the lubricant through lowered operating temperature and lower additive consumption
Mode of operation of NanoVit®
- Through the input of energy (temperature/friction), NanoVit ‘organises’ the oil molecules and forms a three-dimensional oil structure on the friction surfaces.
- The particle oil spheres formed cover the surfaces of the respective friction contact – at already used friction points, any deposits present are loosened and removed by the flow of oil (“cleaning effect”).
- Any abrasive particles created are enclosed by the particle oil spheres and thus lose their abrasive effect.
- The lubricating film formed has an extremely high load capacity and can adjust itself elastically to the load requirements.
- Unlike chemically acting additives, NanoVit is not consumed during use; i.e. the effect is stable in the long term.
The effect of NanoVit has been confirmed in numerous uses, even under very difficult conditions.
Deposits - a problem with internal combustion engines
An attempt is made to optimise the efficiency and thus the fuel consumption of engines by means of exhaust gas recirculation. In the process, oil mist is generated that changes its physical state through contact with hot exhaust gases. This leads to coking. Over the course of time the contamination in the engine increases and the engine performance gradually decreases.
