Abstract

Since 1927 there has been an intense activity in the development of lubricating greases. Many laboratory investigations have been carried on in the study of lubricants, under subnormal and abnormal temperature conditions. The physical properties of a grease depend upon its constituents. Investigations of the various ingredients for high oiliness and water resistant power have been developed and their effects upon melting points of lubricating greases have been determined. In the present problem, an attempt has been made to study the effect of water in oil lubricating emulsion using emulsifying agents which are nitrogen containing derivatives of palmitic acid.
