Abstract [en]

The film formation capabilities of six environmentally adapted ester based fluids have been investigated using optical interferometry in a Ball and Disc apparatus. A mineral oil was used as a reference. The properties and molecular structure for the tested base fluids are well known from earlier investigations. The fluids were tested at three different slide/roll ratios of 0, 0.6, and 1.2. The film formation capability was compared to the molecular structure and other properties. It was found that some of the fluids maintain a superior lubricating film at high slide/roll ratios than others, because of their molecular properties. A high level of carboxylate groups in the ester molecule gives high thermal conductivity and heat capacity, which promotes heat transportation out of the contact and this also maintain separation
