The Study of Tribological Properties in Conjunction with A Radial Piston Motor
Hydraulic motor is an area of exploration of paramount importance, but it does not depend viscosity of the
hydraulic fluid alone. At low speeds and high torque conditions, hydraulic motors operate in the boundary regime and,
thereby causing surface interactions of lubricant additives to have an effect on the friction and thus the system efficiency.
This is of importance because they can be used to delve into research and development of fluids that can improve motor
efficiency whilst revealing the need for an effective additive package so as to ensure that the other properties of the fluid
remain intact as it attempts to attain improved motor efficiency. Thus this study investigates the study of tribological
properties in conjunction with a radial piston motor and how its knowledge can be utilised to improve efficiency of the
motor and thence the system.
