Main Directions of Scientific Investigations

Development, investigations and testing of hydro-pneumatic automation and systems of mobile ma­chinery, research and testing of petrol-products and special liquids functional properties; research aimed at finding the ways of prolonging life expectancy of the working liquids as one of the main elements of the hydraulic drive; development of the influence-evaluation methods of the working liquids function­al properties on reliability of the hydraulic drive; research and development of new lubrication materials; evaluative analysis of the quality of petrol products.


List of Provided Services

RTL HPSPP performs research and testing (including those for certification) and does the certifica­tion (declarations including those compatible with the technical regulations of the Customs Union TR TS 030/2012, TR TC 013/ 2011): petrol products and special liquids; hydraulic-and-pneumatic drives and their elements, management systems according STB ISO 9001-2009.

As part of RTL HPSPP there are the body for Certification of petrol products, special liquids, hydrau­lic-and-pneumatic drives and management systems (Certificate of Accreditation No BY/112 028.01/02), and the Testing Center for hydraulic power drives, their elements, petrol products and special liquids of hydraulic-and-pneumatic apparatuses (Certificate of Accreditation No BY/112


Major Achievements

The Laboratory fulfilled economic agreements and contracts on request of JSC "MTZ", JSC "Bela­ruskaliy", JSC "BELAZ", JSC "MZ SIITO", representation ВР/Castrol, CJSC "Shell Neft", EXXON MOBIL, com­panies AGIP and Gazpromneft, Lukoil-Belarus and others.

Among product developments one may mentions: a film-forming inhibited petroleum composition protecting against corrosion for metal are operating in the air with high concentration of corrodents - developed and introduced in JSC "Belaruskaliy". Corrosion inhibitor developed jointly with IPIPRE of NAS Belarus for preservation of motors and fuel systems of the automobile-and-tractor machinery. The pi­lot batch implemented at JSC "MMZ" and JSC "MTZ". An installation for hardening large-dimensioned stamping tools with air-and-water mixture - developed and introduced at JSC "MZ SIITO".

RTL HPSPP disposes a modern facilities: a fraction-composition automatic analyzer, a cryostat, ther­mostatic systems, a temperature recorder, a four-ball friction machine (ChShM), a thermal-vacuum cham­ber STBV-1000, I-R-spectrometer Nicolet-6700, an instrument Oxford-3500 for sulphur-content estima­tion in petrol products, a UIT-85M unit estimating the fuel octane value, drying chambers, viscometers, areometers, thermometers.
