One simple, efficient, reliable, and inexpensive method to protect the inner surface of slim tubes prior to exposure to corrosion is to apply a dispersed oil fraction through a nozzle and a mixing valve to prepare a mixture of air and oil applied on the texture in a suitable form. The problem, in particular, is in transporting the oil micro particles to the distal end of the lean tube. The method also has an ecological effect, since other known “soaking” methods of oil application onto the inner surface of slim tubes require long and laborious cleaning methods with higher oil consumption. This method was experimentally verified by measurement and modal simulation in Ansys CFX 19.1 software. The results indicate the possibilities of using the method in practice. However, there are a few rules and recommendations to follow when applying this solution strategy. View Full-Text
