Bio-lubricant is a lubricant that is made from pure vegetable oil and some of them from used cooking oil. The production of used cooking oil is increasing every year causes the disposal method that used to dispose used cooking oil become limited and harm the environment. The purpose of this study is to design and develop a device for filtration process of used cooking oil for bio lubrication application. The 3D drawing of the filter is designed by using the SOLIDWORKS software. The filter is built from polypropylene and activated filter media, PVC vessel, plastic and stainless steel tank, heater, electrical pump and base made from wood. Product testing and oil analysis is conducted to test the ability of the filter that was developed.Determination of filtering system effectiveness is by using three test based on ASTM and ISO method which are ASTM D6595, Heated Viscometer and ISO 4406 to detect the elements, contaminants, particles and viscosity of the oil. According to the test result, the amount of particles and viscosity of the oil is decrease. The viscosity of the oil is decreased from 49 cSt to 44.9 cSt after filtration process. The results show the effectiveness of the prototypes and filter media that was produce and used. With the production of this product, the oil that filtered oil can be used as a raw material for bio lubrication and at the same time can reduce the pollution.
