Abstract:

FUEL SULFUR IS ON THE INCREASE AND THERE EXISTS NO DIRECT METHOD FOR ALERTING DIESEL ENGINE OPERATORS AS TO THE DESIRABILITY OF CHANGING LUBRICATING OIL. MOST DIESEL OPERATORS NOW CONSIDER PERIODIC OIL ANALYSES AS THEIR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN MAINTAINING EQUIPMENT; THIS METHOD IS BOTH EXPENSIVE AND OFTEN INCONVIENT. THIS RESEARCH EXPLORES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE ELECTROCHEMICAL CORROSION OF MULTILAYER DECORATIVE COATINGS TO CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR THE ACIDITY OF DIESEL LUBRICATING OIL. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM SYSTEMATICALLY EXPLORES THE CORROSION RATES OF TERNARY IRON ALLOYS COVERED WITH CHROMIUM OVERLAYERS. CHANGES IN COATING COLOR ALERTS THE OPERATOR TO THE NEED FOR OIL, FILTER AND DIPSTICK CHANGE.
