Abstract: The rheology and related low-temperature pumpability of engine oils used in modern heavy-duty diesel engines are markedly affected by the presence of high levels of soot. This paper presents results of studies of the rheological condition of highly soot-laden oils using two protocols of the Scanning Brookfield Technique (SBT) as investigative tools.
