of the benefits that can be achieved:
reservoir size and lower weight
oil temperature possible
oil - filter can be used on suction side
risk for "Diesel effects"
oil volume is possible
location of tank
with bio-degradeable oils
nature seeks balance and oil in contact with air
dissolves air and moisture. The amount is
Oil dissolves approximately 9 - 10 volume percent
of air at 20 °C. This air is normally invisible
and does not affect the oil volume. The
solubility is increased with higher temperature
and changes linear to the pressure according to
Henry's law. Air bubbles are released if the oil
pressure is under the saturation point. Oil can
not hold any gasses at maximum vacuum pressure.
A maximum of 200 - 2000 ppm water at 20 °C can
be dissolved and this differs with the oil type.
More water makes the oil cloudy. The solubility
of water increases at higher temperatures. The
oil life changes with oxygen content, temperature
and water content. The length of oil-life is
proportional to the oxygen content and is
promoted by low temperature and low water content.
REDFOX works with vacuum and reduces both oxygen
and water content in oil.
