THE EFFECT OF HEAT ON OIL VISCOSITY IN INDUSTRIAL SECTORS
In an industrial setting, oil viscosity directly impacts its quality and the ease at which you can extract it. Among various factors, temperature often determines the viscosity of the oil.
A fluid’s viscosity refers to its resistance to flow and shear. A liquid with low viscosity is free-flowing and moves faster and easier, water being an excellent example of this. On the other hand, high viscosity fluids move slower and less quickly. Examples of high viscosity fluids include syrup and molasses. Of course, oil falls in the category of being a high viscosity fluid.
