Science and innovations

Our enterprise always implements different innovative technologies and equipment, what helps us to get high quality and high demanded products that are up to standards of leading manufacturers in the sphere of additive production. Moreover, we work out various activities aimed at reducing energy intensity and increasing energy efficiency of new products.

New products

During the years 2012 -2013 was finished creation process of new package of additives for diesel lubricating oils PA-4502 and its implementation into manufacture. On the base of worked out and practiced earlier technologies, JVLL “LLK-NAFTAN” together with experimentation center Association of Automotive Engineers (AAE) created and tested composition of  this effective package of additives.  Package of additives PA-4502 helps to get lubricating oils suitable for modern diesel engines. Moreover, formulas of these oils are worked out.

Lubricating oils, based on package of additives PA-4502 and tested with positive results in AAE, scientific and technical center JSC “KAMAZ” and JSC “ AVTODIZEL”:

- LUKOIL MZk-1, SAE 15W-40, corresponds to API CI-4/SL,(for factory filling);

- LUKOIL MZk-2, SAE 10W40, corresponds to API CI-4/SL,(for factory filling);

- LUKOIL AVANGARD ULTRA, SAE 5W-40, SAE 10W-40, SAE 15W-40, corresponds to API CI-4/SL;

- Naftan Diesel Plus L, SAE 10W-40, SAE 15W-40, corresponds to API CH-4/CG-4/SJ,

- Naftan Diesel Ultra L, SAE 10W-40, SAE 15W-40, corresponds to API CI-4/SL

Based on below-listed results these oils could be used in engines EURO-3 and EURO-4 level.

Modernization of technological schemes

Modernization of technological schemes is organized for realization of technical policy practiced on JVLL “LLK-NAFTAN”. This policy is aimed at uprising work efficiency of enterprise nowadays and getting stable results in future. Staged reconstruction of main technological units and sectors of enterprise is undertaken to accomplish this goal.

Modern high-technology centrifugal equipment for refining additives was installed and put into operation, what gave us a possibility to improve quality of output products by means of increasing colloidal stability level up to 90% and higher.

Reactor shops manufacturing sulfonate and alkyl phenol additives are at finishing stage of modernization in order to reach accurate balancing of components and automation of technological process.

Following activities at packing and shipping sectors were implemented:

- Modernization of railway Estacada for bulk products;

- Put into operation semiautomatic conveyor for filling products into drums and IBC containers.

In the year 2013 began to function our own research laboratory, what gave up an opportunity to create modeling and reproduction technological processes, develop formulas of different products, study the impact of various factors on technological processes behavior, and get initial data for analysis and scientific prognostication.
