( Request Training ).
I am still new to this field which is Lubricants.
Here is my situation & what I need from you guys to recommend it to me …
All of us we know what we mean by ( Lubricant Blending Process ).
Here in my country – Egypt - , I have studied the Market, and I found the most required products are the following :-
·( 20 W 50 – SL ) – ( 5 W 30 – SN ) – ( 15 W 40 C I 4 ) – ( 15 W 40 CH 4 ) – ( 20 W 50 CH 4) –( Hydraulic 68 ) – ( CF 50 ) – ( CD 50 ).
For more information, I have the Formula for ( 20 W 50 – SL ) & let me share it with you as an example.
·Base Oil ( virgin base oil ) – SN 150 = 8.5 %.
·Base Oil ( virgin base oil ) – SN 500 = 75.9 %
·SL/CF PACKAGE ( from Additive company) = 6.5 %
·Viscosity Index Improver ( VII ) = 9.0 %
· Pour Point depressants ( PPD )=0.1 %.
Here is my question, I want to know if there is any Training I can Attend by myself to know how to prepare the product ( 20 W 50 SL ) on small scale first using a digital magnetic stirrer hot plate in my Lab as the first step.
As the second step once I make sure the sample which I prepared is correct and it meets the requirements of ( 20 W 50 SL ), I will Immediately implement on Big scale which is in blending vessel which is almost ( 5 Metric Tons = 5,000 LTR ).
My question is a very simple way, which one is put first, then heat to which degree, then add what else, then do what else is next? shall I put ( SN 150 ) first, or ( SN 500 First ) and then do the blending while the heater is working & to which degree ? should be 80 degrees Celsius, or what?
Can anyone recommend also a good institute that can teach me how to prepare / Implement the Products?
I have all the required formulas, from Lubrizol & Unfortunately, I am the only one who is supervising this project
Please advise me ASAP .
