As regulations on fuel economy tighten, OEM’s are pushed to reduce energy losses where possible.  Research into lubricants which optimise engine performance by reducing frictional losses continues. Using PCS equipment,  fully automated traction mapping of conditions found in internal combustion engine can be performed, shear rates can be replicated and EHD film thicknesses can be analysed. PCS have worked closely with a large number of experts in the automotive industry for the past 30 years and our instruments have developed to meet their ever-changing needs.
