What Is Oxidation Stability?
Sep 30, 2017
What is Oxidation Stability? What is the meaning for production and application?
The ability of petroleum products to resist atmosphere (or oxygen) effects and retain their properties without permanent change is called Oxidation Stability. 
Oil in the process of storing and using, oxidation is inevitable with air contact.
The longer the contact, the higher the temperature, the deeper degree of oxidation, will have an irreversible change in some properties of oil, such as the increasing of acid value, viscosity, sediment, color is darker, and so on, these changes greatly shorten the service life of the oil products.
The oxidation stability of oil is closely related to the properties of the base oil, the refining depth, the characteristics, quality, compatibility and modulation technology of additives.
