Default New 'Nanolube' Could Cut Engine Friction by More Than Half


Quote:
In any contraption with moving parts--automotive engines, industrial machines, a countertop juicer--some degree of energy is lost as heat to friction. That loss can range from the relatively small amount lost by a single juicer, to the collectively huge amount lost each day by, say, all of the cars in the world (or all of the industrial machines used to manufacture them). A new nanotech solution could change that via a new lubrication technology that can cut friction by 55 percent.
Dr. Guojun Liu, a Chemistry professor at Queenís University, augmented a base automobile engine oils with nanoscale polymer particles just tens of nanometers in size. Tested under simulated conditions mimicking that of the surface metal contact in car engines, these particles were found to reduce friction, and not just by a little. Liuís nanolube reduced friction--and the energy lost to it--by more than half.


Given the vast applications of metal-on-metal machinery, not just on the road but across the manufacturing industry, in the laboratory, in construction and agricultural equipment, and elsewhere, such a friction-cutting nanolube could put a huge dent in wasted energy. That potential dent is so huge, in fact, that it garnered Liu a Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers' Captain Alfred E. Hunt Memorial Award.
Do you know anyone who has a Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers' Captain Alfred E. Hunt Memorial Award? We didnít think so.

not sure what you're talking about, but I wacked off with this the other night and at first I couldn't get a good grip, I kept slipping off and hitting myself in the face (told my boss the black eye was from a fight in a bar). once I figured out a better grip I was going for like 30 minutes, my arm got tired, and I ended up spraying it with carb cleaner to get all of the nanolube off, then putting peanut butter on it and letting the dog lick it off, surprise ending doggy!
