Misrpetrol Egypt

MISR PETROLEUM CO., the National Oil Company in Egypt carried out Engine Tests with RVS Technology products in May 2005.

Major results:

John Deere 6.6 l, Diesel:

 Power output  Torque  Fuel Consumption  Compression
 1.6 %  1.7 %  5.8 %  16.9 %

Fiat 1.6 l, Bifuel (with gasoline):

 Power output  Torque  Fuel Consumption  Compression
12.9 %  4.4 %  5,1 %  19.4 %

 Fiat 1.6 l, Bifuel (with natural gas):

 Power output  Torque  Fuel Consumption  Compression
 2.7 %  2.6 %  5,1 %  19.4 %

Emissions:

  • NOx level had increased in Fiat cases, probably caused by irregulated ignition timing and reduced burning/exhaust gas temperature. This in turn may have affected the proportional portion of CO₂ in the emissions.
  • The total emission level has dropped in all cases, in particular HC and CO emissions.

Miscellanous:

  • The iddle speed of the engines increased in JD from 600 rpm to 750 rpm and in Fiat from 550 rpm to 690 rpm and the exhaust gas temperatus dropped in JD from 147 ºC to 140 ºC and in Fiat from 202 ºC to 193 ºC.
  • The test with natural gas (CNG( was carried with the same engine than the gasoline test had been done before. The results of the gasoline have affected the results (already treated).

Vestas wind turbine test

The test was conducted by AP Mechanical Engineering in Varde in Denmark, by Preben Kristensen, who states:

vestas wind turbine

“The conclusion is that there is no doubt about that RVS Technology has very positive effect to the noise and I will add RVS at each oil change.”

The noise level of the wind turbine gearbox dropped from 97.2 dB to 85.3 dB after RVS Technology treatment, which in practice means that the noise level has more than halved.

RVS in marine applications

Translation of a test report on using the RVS Technology® in marine applications

CONCLUSIONS

  1. Laboratory studies on the effect of adding the RVS compound in engine and aviation oil on tribotechnical properties of friction pair specimens (steel – cast iron, steel – bronze, cast iron – cast iron) with AYe-5 and 77MT-1 friction machines have been carried out.
  2. The efficiency of using the RVS compound for decreasing the friction parameters and speeding up the running-in of friction parts of machines and mechanisms (shaft – bearing shell, bushing – shaft, cylinder – piston ring) has been determined.
  3. It is found out that, when the wear velocity stabilises, adding the RVS compound in the amount of 0.2 percent of the oil volume reduces the friction coefficient by 50 to 60 percent and the temperature on friction surfaces.
  4. On basis of the results, the recommendations for applying the RVS Technology in marine and river transport have been given.

SEW-Eurodrive

RVS - SEW-Eurodrive test

The efficiency of RVS Technology® Gel was examined in Load Tests of Geared Engines of the Company SEW-Eurodrive

Tests were carried out, at the Premises of the Company ELEKTRO-MASCHINENBAU Bogner GmbH & Co. KG in Germany, 20-24.12.2003. The goal was to examine the temperature and current behaviour of 4 worm-geared engines without gear oil at nominal load to determine the emergency operating features of the engines. It observes the difference between 2 engines, which have been treated with RVS Technology Gel and 2 untreated engine,

Summary:

The test results clearly show that the RVS Technology Gel had a significant effect on the treated geared engines. The surfaces of the gears are coated so as to achieve a
significantly higher stability. Although a steel/brass friction combination does not result in the optimal characteristics of the RVS Technology Gel, the temperature differences up to
54 °C (-61%) and current differences up to 2.0 A (-65%), are evident.

Bogner current flow 650

The surface of the gear teeth indicates very strong seizing marks and very high bearing temperatures (annealing colours) in the untreated engines (Engine 3). There are absolutely no signs of wear on engines treated with RVS Technology (Engine 1).

Engine 3 (untreated)

SEW eng3 untr 650

Engine 1 (treated with RVS)

SEW eng1 treated 650

In conclusion it can be stated that the RVS Technology Gel is well suited to coat frictional metal surfaces and thus protect them against wear, reduce friction and significantly increase service life.

The tests showed excellent emergency operating features of treated gears. In fact, since this is not a real case of operating, the coating on the gear teeth may result in significantly longer lifetimes (2-fold), potential savings of oil changes and even the use of cheaper material.

Oil-free powertrain test

RVS took part in 2004 to this EU-funded research program in Munich, Germany. Please read the highlights from the results and the Official Final Report from June 2004 below:

The results are shown in Figure 6: The uncoated discs failed within the first 7 minutes, the discs run with the RVS® Technology substance failed after ca.15 minutes. Thus the lifetime of these discs was more than double as high as the lifetime of the uncoated discs (page 46).

Figure 6:

Fig36 powertrain

After the test traces of silicum could be detected on the surface. The roughness also decreased from Ra = 0.2 µm before the test to Ra = 0.05 µm after the test (page 57). The original grinding texture perpendicular to the circumferential speed wasn't visible anymore.

The conclusion from these tests with the RVS Technology substance is, that at a coating building run at boundary lubrication has a positive impact on the life-time under dry lubrication. The disc roughness decreased and traces of silicium could be detected after this coating building run. However, it was not possible to detect a coating in a metallographic section of the disc surface (page 57).

Factors that might affect detection of the coating:

  • RVS modificates the surface structure and integrates with the friction surface metal thus no clear borderline between the coating and base metal can be detected
  • The triboceramic nanocoating doesn't cover the whole friction surface equally and totally. The ceramic structure is produced where the real contacts take place.
  • The coating film can be and usually is very thin. Perhaps the capacity of measurement device was limited in terms of properties and accuracy.
  • X-Ray or Atom Force microscope pictures taken of a grinded edge chipped from the RVS treated part might be more appropriate for the purpose.
