How Your Engine Oil Specification Can Help Achieve Sustainability Goals  - Infra Bazaar

Over the years, sustainability has gone from being a quirky philanthropist project to being a necessity to ensure a hospitable future. Manufacturing industries and vehicles have some of the highest carbon emissions among human activities. As such, it is an industry’s responsibility to make sure it treats the Earth with kindness. This is particularly applicable to OEMs.
It is not simply environmental activists who think this way. Governments, even consumers, believe industries have no choice but to regulate their carbon emissions. Governments across the globe have regulations in place for companies to abide by, and strict penalties if they don’t.

 

On the consumer side of things, customers are rallying for ethically-sourced, environmentally supportive products. A report showed that over 70% of environmentally conscious customers are willing to pay extra to support sustainable brands.
To the common observer however, this seems to be at odds with how production works. Will environmentalism cause industries to lose money? How can industries dance between strict government regulations and a demand for efficiency and productivity? This conundrum has led to some very innovative changes, and these changes are set to leave their mark for all future generations. 
The solution seems too simple to be true: high-performing, low-viscosity engine oil technology. Let us take a deep dive into how this lubricant is changing the way industries function.

 

EFFICIENCY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Lower-viscosity lubricants have proven themselves time and time again as a more sustainable alternative to lubricants. They reduce a whopping 10-12 tons of carbon dioxide.  In fact, they have also been proven to save more fuel and increase its efficiency. According to the American Petroleum Institute, fuel savings from using low-viscosity lubricants can increase up to 1.5%; the fuel efficiency increases up to 0.7%. 


Although these numbers seem marginal, they add up to something over time, over a large fleet of trucks. It is a zero-risk switch to make the world a more habitable place. 

 

SAFETY AND WEAR
As a plus to these lovely benefits, low-viscosity lubricants are just as safe to use as the usual ones. With a test analysing over 75 million miles of data, they showed an equal wear and protection level. This ensures that trucks work efficiently for a long period of time without the need for repair or replacement. They are an added efficiency bonus for the same amount of mileage. Environmentally aware products need not be unproductive, and this lubricant proves that.

 

KEEPING WITH THE TIMES
Additionally, more and more machinery is prioritising low-viscosity lubricants. For example, to cool pistons, oil is squirted through the cooling jet. Here, Higher-viscosity lubricants do not work well. With newer technologies, low-viscosity lubricant is not only recommended, but necessary. Higher-viscosity lubricants have inappropriate flow levels for this task, and lead to deposit build up and heated pistons.
Low-viscosity ones are the only lubricants compatible with new machinery, as well as future machinery. It is a well known fact that using updated technology leads to better efficiency. It is brilliant that low-viscosity lubricant has ordained the marriage of efficiency and environmentalism.
