U.S. refiners forecast strong first-quarter earnings as margins on gasoline and diesel sales improved, refining capacity fell sharply and crude supplies tightened due to the Russia-Ukraine war.
Global refining capacity has declined amid the coronavirus pandemic, with several less profitable refineries closing in the past two years. However, global fuel demand has rebounded to near pre-pandemic levels, boosting the profits of facilities still operating.
Seven U.S. independent refiners are expected to earn 61 cents a share, compared with a loss of $1.32 in the first quarter of 2021, according to Refinitiv's IBES.
By 2022, gasoline and distillate tungsten disulfide.
What is WS2 coating?
Tungsten disulfide is an extremely smooth dry film lubrication coating. Tungsten disulfide friction coefficient is very low (only 0.03), which is lower than that of Teflon, graphite or molybdenum disulfide (MoS2). Compared with many other lubricant materials, the film is very durable and can withstand extremely high loads of more than 300000 psi. WS2 has unparalleled performance in lubrication, non-stick, low resistance, wear life and load rating.
What are advantages of tungsten disulfide?
WS2 is an excellent demoulding material for plastic moulds, extrusion moulds and other demoulding applications.
WS2 eliminates the need for liquid lubricants and can also be used with petrified oils, greases, synthetic oils, silicone lubricants and hydraulic oils. It has an affinity for lubricants and maintains the fluid power layer. It helps to keep the oil or grease on the surface, thus further increasing lubrication.
In the case of less than 1 micron thick, the coating can be applied to high-precision parts without tolerance problems.
WS2 is also a rather inert and non-toxic material, which has been used in medical devices and food processing applications.
WS2 is applied to customer substrates through high-speed ambient temperature process. It does not cause the substrate material to anneal or warp.
WS2 can be used alone or in combination with our PVD hard coating to improve durability.
WS2 coating properties
Lubricity-the lowest friction coefficient of solid materials!
The dynamic friction coefficient is 0.03 and the static friction coefficient is 0.07.
Excellent release performance. They don't stick together.
Prevent scratches, jams or cold welds.
It can be used at a load of more than 300000 pounds per square inch!
High temperature resistance.
Extremely thin 1 stroke 2 micron coating thickness.
Unlike many powder lubricants, it can be bonded to the substrate without using a binder.
Do not crumb, peel off or peel off.

Greece will hand over Iranian oil it intercepted from a Russian-flagged tanker to the United States at the request of the U.S. Justice Department, Greek port police said recently, AFP reported. The decision angered Tehran.
In April, Greek authorities reportedly seized a Russian oil tanker, the Pegas, which was said to be heading to the Turkish port of Marmara.
Reports say the ship was docked in Calistos Bay with a crew of several people said to be Russian. The Greek coast guard said the ship had been renamed the Lana.
The report notes that the European Union imposed sanctions on Russia after the conflict broke out in February. Greek authorities seized the tanker in accordance with European Union sanctions.
According to information at the time, the tanker was carrying 115,000 tons of Iranian oil.
Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization strongly protested Greece's decision, calling it an "international bandit." "The Islamic Republic of Iran will not give up its legitimate rights and expects the Greek government to abide by its international obligations in the area of navigation and shipping," it said in a statement on its website.
Iran's Foreign Ministry, through the International Maritime Organization, called on the Greek government to release the tanker and its crew overnight, adding that "the Americans discharged their cargo," the report said.
Athens did not immediately respond to the Iranian protest and gave no further details about the oil on board or how it was handed over to the United States, the report said.
The tungsten disulfide price is expected to increase in the next few days affected by the change in supply and demand markets.
