Case story: Knegt Quality Tractors

All Knegt tractors are filled with Eni lubricants

Knegt Quality Tractors is the only Dutch manufacturer of compact tractors. Originally developed for the equestrian circuit, a Knegt tractor is now the Dutch answer to applications in garden and forestry, gardeners, leisure and sports facilities.

Jeroen van Eerd, director and founder, talks about the origin of the company and the relationship with Eni. 'More than 15 years ago I noticed that there was no affordable compact tractor for the equestrian market. I decided to research in China and after a long search I came into contact with a factory that could supply the parts for a compact tractor that we could assemble in the Netherlands. The first shipment was exciting, but this soon turned out to be a good move. Over the years we have further developed the tractors. There was no discussion about one thing, the tractors had to be filled with Eni's oil. We have now grown to a European company and we are still, satisfactorily, filling every tractor with Eni via Oliehandel Schippers.
 
Racing team Kuypers
Besides running a successful business, there is fortunately still time for hobbies. With racing team ‘Team Kuypers’ we proudly drive around with Eni lettering on our cars. We also hope to achieve our successes here!'

What lubricant should you use for your car?
In order to choose the best motor oil the manufacturer's recommendations should always be followed.
To identify the most appropriate lubricant it is therefore necessary to:
  • Consult the section in the vehicle's maintenance guide concerning lubrication
  • Identify the manufacturer's suggested viscosity level (e.g. 5W-30, 15W-40, etc)
  • Identify the performance specifications required by the manufacturer (e.g. ACEA A3/B4, VW 505.00, etc)
  • Choose among the Eni product range the lubricant that can guarantee the viscosity and the strict specifications of constructors.

When do I need an oil change?
Regular oil changes ensure greater engine protection and better operation. The frequency of the oil change is indicated in your car’s maintenance manual and varies according to use (for example, predominantly urban use will more frequent oil changes). It is crucial to check your oil level frequently.

What is the ideal oil level?
  • the oil level should never exceed the stated maximum indicated on the dipstick
  • you should check the oil level when the engine is cold 
  • do not travel long distances with the level close to minimum

Can oils can be mixed?
Oils of different brands can be mixed as long as the viscosity grade and performance specifications are the same.

Prolonging the life of your car
A good quality lubricant increases engine efficiency and extends its life considerably. Even if the car travels a few kilometers it is highly recommended to perform an oil change once a year. Besides the oil, it is also advisable to replace the oil filter at least every two changes. There is obviously a cost, but taking care of your car regularly, will significantly prolong its life.

Respecting the environment
The oil used in internal combustion engines becomes a hazardous waste. If disposed of incorrectly or used improperly, it can be highly polluting. If spilled on the ground, for example, it can reach the water table and pollute drinking water. If it is dispersed in water it will create a thin, impermeable film that prevents flora and fauna from breathing. Just to give you an idea of how damaging it can be, just 4 liters of used oil, the equivalent of an ordinary oil change for a car, if spilled into the sea would pollute an area the size of a football field.

A more efficient car
To function properly, an engine needs to be permanently lubricated. Lubrication reduces friction between moving parts and limits wear that can affect the engine. The lubricant also serves to cool the mechanical parts and to protect the internal surfaces from corrosion, as well as maintaining the cleanliness of the engine and facilitating the sealing of the piston rings. A properly maintained engine will give you optimum performance.

FAST is a rapid system of control  for loads for onboard equipment that can be found on the Eni web site.

Why use FAST
An analysis of operational loads is indispensable for the early detection of any malfunctioning of machinery or the term of the useful life of the oil, enabling the crew to act quickly before serious damage is caused. To meet the needs of the customers, Eni offers the FAST service "Fast Analysis System Test" which provides:
  • certainty of the results obtained using the most modern equipment;
  • rapid analysis reports;
  • a team of qualified technicians for diagnosis and comments on each analysis report;
  • ease of use;
  • the possibility to programme withdrawals;
  • a database of results that can be checked directly by the customer on the web site;
  • the possibility to obtain charts and comparative tables of historical results;
  • traceability of the sample from arrival in the laboratory to the issue of the test report.
The FAST kit
The kit consists of a practical case containing the material necessary to take 12 samples and arrange for safe shipment.

The laboratory
The analytical laboratory at the Eni Research Centre in San Donato Milanese, uses cutting-edge equipment and highly qualified staff and is ISO 9001:2008 certified.

A full range of controls
To determine with certainty the efficiency of the load,  selected tests are performed in line with the product and the application:
  • Group A for the main slow engine oils and those for auxiliary engines running on heavy fuel oil or diesel fuel;
  • Group B for oils for steam turbines, for the main reduction gearboxes, propeller shafts and hydraulic systems;
  • Group C heat transfer system oil.

Our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page will answer the most frequently asked questions about lubricants.
 

Which are the functions of a lubricants?


A lubricant may have several functions. The main ones are:
  • Keep surfaces separate under all loads, temperatures and speeds, thus minimising friction and wear
  • Act as a cooling fluid removing the heat produced by friction or from external sources
  • Remain adequately stable in order to guarantee constant behaviour over the forecasted useful life
  • Protect surfaces from the attack of aggressive products formed during operation
  • Show cleaning capability and dirt holding capacity in order to remove residue and debris that may form during operation.
 

How is a lubricant made?


The formulation of a lubricant is made up of base oils and additives that combine to determine behaviour when in use, both in terms of performance and in terms of duration.
The final quality of lubricating oil usually depends on the quality of the base oils used, which are generally distinguished as either:
  • mineral oils: obtained from the distilling process in the refining of crude oil
  • synthetic oils: which are derived from particular physical/chemical laboratory treatments

Which are the main properties of a lubricant?

The main properties of lubricants, which are usually indicated in the technical characteristics of the product, are:
  • Viscosity 
    Viscosity describes the flow behaviour of a fluid. The viscosity of lubricating oils diminishes as temperature rises and consequently is measured at a given temperature (e.g. 40°C).
  • Viscosity index
    The viscosity index is a characteristic used to indicate variations in the viscosity of lubricating oils with changes in temperature. The higher the level of the viscosity index, the lower the variation in viscosity at temperature changes.
  • Pour point
    The pour point refers to the minimum temperature at which a lubricant continues to flow. Below the pour point, the oil tends to thicken and to cease to flow freely.
  • Flash point
    The flash point is the minimum temperature at which an oil-vapour-air-mixture becomes inflammable.

Which are the benefits of synthetic base oils lubricants?

  • Lower level of volatility to a comparable level of viscosity (which leads to lower consumption during use)
  • Higher viscosity index (a wider temperature gap)
  • Greater chemical stability at high temperatures (longer useful life)

How to choose the right engine oil?

In order to choose the best motor oil the manufacturer's recommendations should always be followed. To identify the most appropriate lubricant it is therefore necessary to:
  • Consult the section in the vehicle's maintenance guide concerning lubrication
  • Identify the manufacturer's suggested viscosity level (e.g. 5W-30, 15W-40, etc)
  • Identify the performance specifications required by the manufacturer (e.g. ACEA A3/B4, VW 505.00, etc)
  • Choose among the Eni product range the lubricant that can guarantee the viscosity and the strict specifications of constructors.
