Abstract

Nowadays eco-friendly issues induce to come along due to the fact the mineral oil and synthetic oil is non-biodegradable. Today's, ecological consciousness has placed up mineral oils as the most broadly used lubricants as a base fluid into consideration to the utilization of biodegradable fluid like vegetable oils. The major goal of this particular study is to develop alternative lubricant oil with the addition of the antioxidizing agent right into the vegetable oil which commercialized palm oil is chosen to be the base oil of the lubricant. All the same, the major problem of vegetable oil has poor thermo-oxidative stability. Vegetable well known that the unsaturated fatty acids identified in common feedstock. These unsaturated fatty acids may react with atmospheric oxygen, forming peroxides and lead in a variety of problematic degradation byproducts, including corrosive, low molecular weight acids and biopolymers. These byproducts are the primary case of sludge and lacquer in automotive injection systems and also fuel system. Thus, introduction of tert-Butylhydroquinone (TBHQ) that known as the effective antioxidant additive in preventing the degradation of lubricating oil dissolved in palm oil using direct blending method. There are three American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) methods will be conducted which in a sample testing and characterization stage and it is important because to characterize the properties of the new oil and test it to engine application. From this study, 0.3 value of coefficient of friction was produced in 3000-PPM blending, which was lowest data in this study. In conclusion, 3000-PPM addition of TBHQ was best blending in this study.
