Comparative assessment of the qualities of commercial and synthetic transformer oils

Keywords: petroleum transformer oils; ionic liquid; selective solvents; synthetic fluids.

Abstract. Petroleum transformer oils previously produced in the USSR met the requirements of GOST 982-80. Balakhany oil and Dossor low-paraffin oil of the Emben field were the raw materials for obtaining transformer oil. The composition of transformer oils is taken into account when choosing raw materials and their regeneration.  т-1500u – transformer oil of improved quality, is used in electrical equipment up to 500 kV and up to 750 kV. GK oil is a hydrocracking transformer oil, used in voltages up to 1150 kV, contains ionol. тsp is oil from West Siberian oils, used up to 220 kV. This oil is of relatively low quality, characterized by a high sulfur content, low oxidation stability, and high dielectric loss tg.

In the Institute of Petrochemical Processes of ANAS, research has been carried out on the selective

purification of transformer oil distillate from Balakhany oil using a new highly effective solvent – ion-

ic liquid (IL) – a quaternary ammonium salt of formic acid and a number of amines – morpholine, aniline or di-, triethylamines. The optimal conditions for the selective purification of the distillate have been developed. Due to the shortage of high-quality transformer oils, as well as the high cost, in recent years, oils have been imported from Sweden and Austria.

An ionic liquid as a solvent is highly selective. The analysis of the extract from selective purification

showed that it does not contain naphthene-paraffins, the content of aromatic hydrocarbons in the extract is 65 %, and when purified with furfural it is 40.8 %. The ionic liquid is environmentally friendly.

Features of the modern process of evaluation of motor oils

Keywords: internal combustion engine (ICE); engine oils; classification; evaluation methods; certification.

Abstract. Changes in the design and parameters of modern internal combustion engines in order to achieve high economic, environmental, and other indicators lead to a tightening of the operating conditions of engine oil. Engine oil is an integral part of the internal combustion engine and from the point of view of modern views is positioned as an engine part. Currently, all internal combustion engine oils are generally tested, classified and evaluated according to generally accepted criteria and parameters. Without specifying and analyzing a whole layer of materials related to research, testing, evaluation of motor oils accumulated over more than a century, the article briefly discusses some general aspects of the classification and evaluation of oils for automotive equipment in leading foreign countries and the Russian Federation.

Study of phosphorus-containing compounds as anti-seize and anti-wear additives for transmission and engine oils

Keywords: dithiophosphates; anti-seize and anti-wear additives; lubricating properties; functional groups.

Abstract. Dithiophosphoric acid esters containing various functional groups have been synthesized. On the basis of allyloxybenzyl- and allyloxymethylbenzylchlorides, as well as sodium diisopropyldithiophosphate, allyloxybenzyl- and allyloxymethylbenzyldialkyldithiophosphates were obtained, respectively. 5-methyl-2-hydroxyphenylcarbonylmethyldiisopropyldithiophosphate was synthesized by the interaction of 5-methyl-2-hydroxy-chloroacetophenone and sodium diisopropyldithiophosphate. The synthesized compounds were studied as anti-wear and anti-seize additives for lubricating oils. Were also investigated their thermo-oxidative and anticorrosive properties. It was found that all synthesized compounds provide an improvement in the anti-wear and anti-seize properties of petroleum oils, and the efficiency depends on the presence of certain functional groups in the molecules of additives.

Study of the composition and environmental aspects of the use of pyrolysis distillate of the Ustyurt gas chemical complex

Keywords: hydrocarbon crude pyrolysis naphtha; automobile gasoline; pyrolysis; polyethylene; polypropylene; cryoscopy.

Abstract. The development of technologically efficient and economical methods of using liquid pyrolysis products is a task of current interest. Despite the apparent variety of developments, the proposed methods are reduced either to obtaining a set of fractions, which are subsequently used as technical products, or to obtaining a wide range of individual compounds.

The complexity and wastelessness of oil refining and petrochemistry, which has become especially acute due to the increasing negative impact of human activities on the environment, provides for the complete utilization of all material flows with the maximum extraction of useful components, the use of technologies, catalysts and reagents that exclude the formation of harmful emissions and waste.

Currently, one of the most common methods for producing lower olefins (ethylene, propylene, butylenes) is the pyrolysis of hydrocarbons of various origins (gas, straight-run gasoline, a broad fraction of light hydrocarbons, etc.).

A set of classical and modern research methods was used in the work, which makes it possible to determine the physical, physicochemical characteristics, functional composition, to study the processes occurring in the initial oil and gas products and in the pyrolysis distillate subjected to various refining processes, in particular, dearomatization, and also to establish chemical compositions, structure, chemical nature and their stability.

The article presents the results of analyzes to determine the physicochemical characteristics of naphtha obtained via pyrolysis of the Ustyurt gas chemical complex and the results of research on the use of pyrolysis naphtha as motor gasoline.

Influence of surfactants on the wettability of watered viscous oils of some fields in Azerbaijan

Keywords: water-cut oil; surfactants; molasses; vinasse; wettability; contact angle; fluidity.

Abstract. The results of comparative experimental studies of the effect of various widely used surfactants, as well as sugar refinery waste – after yeast molasses and vinasse on the wettability of the interaction surface during the in-field pipeline transport of oils from fields in the southern region of Azerbaijan and can be successfully used, especially in winter, to regulate fluidity highly emulsion and low solidifying oils. It is shown that the addition of the considered reagents leads to an increase in the contact angle cosine. The effect of the proposed reagents on the fluidity of oil samples with bound and free water, the composition of aqueous solutions of various reagents, as well as the pH of solutions of these reagents on the fluidity of oil samples has been evaluated.

Involvement of products of thermal processing of polymer waste into the raw material pool of oil refinery plants

Keywords: polymer waste; thermolysis; recycling; ecology; petroleum refining.

Abstract. The directions of involving the products of thermal processing of polymer waste into the raw material pool of oil refineries are considered. A detailed analysis of fractions 85-180 °C, 180-360 °C and 360-KK °C, isolated from thermolysis products, has been carried out. Fractions 85-180 °C, 180-360 °C of thermolysis oil are characterized by a high content of organosulfur compounds, which necessitates their hydrotreating before use. After desulfurization, gasoline and diesel fractions can be used in the composition of gasoline and diesel fuels, respectively. The diesel fraction of 180-360 °C of thermolysis oil has a high cetane number and can be considered as a cetane-increasing component. Fraction 360-КК °С thermolysis oil is a potential component of catalytic cracking feedstock. The highest degree of conversion and the yield of valuable components (gasoline, propylene, butane-butene fraction) are achieved during cracking of feedstock containing 30 wt. % of the heavy part of thermolysis oil.

Issue of kerosene supply into live reflux flow of main rectification column of atmospheric vacuum pipestill process units

Keywords: kerosene; gasoline; circulating reflux; distillation proportion; rectification.

Abstract. In this article the possibility of suppling the kerosene fraction into the live reflux line of the K-2 column of the atmospheric vacuum pipestill units is reviewed. According to the results of mathematical calculations in the Petro-SIM software, the fraction 140-240°С was determined as optimal for supplying into the top live reflux line of the K-2 column of the atmospheric vacuum pipestill unit. This action makes it possible to reduce the load on the condensing system of the K-2 column of the atmospheric vacuum pipestill units; the heat potential of the hotter kerosene flow also increases, both for heating oil and for generating low-pressure steam. The article describes the advantages of the method.
