OIL HEATERS: OPERATING IN COLD CONDITIONS
Viscosity is an oil’s most significant property. Without the ability to maintain its thickness, engine oil cannot move fluidly through a system. As temperature drops, viscosity increases, making it more difficult to pump oil through a circulating system or to splash oil on components in a non-circulating system. An engine requires this lubrication to prevent wear and overheating caused by friction. The solution to this sticky situation is an oil heater.
