Information relative to oil thickening has been developed in road tests. Typical operating temperatures, as well as the length of time required to thicken oils in these tests, are described. A laboratory test procedure has been developed that shows a good degree of correlation with this field service. The effect of test conditions such as jacket temperature and piston ring design on oil thickening in the laboratory are described.
