3rd year :ExperimentPosted: January 24, 2016
Today i tried experimenting with different oils and placing them into a hydraulic circuit inorder to see the different outcomes and properties that each oil had. With each oil used i made sure to record all its characteristics such as the thickness there heat tolerances and there ability to with stand freezing cold temperatures.
The oils used was a mixture of vegetable based products and mineral based products so we can compare the two and see if using vegetable oil can achieve the required properties. A total of three experiences where done one was placing them into a hydraulic circuit and the other was exposing the oils to heat and cold climates and see if they can still function in different weather conditions.
