Abstract

Mineral based oil is non-biodegradable and due to complex disposal procedure making it non-environmental friendly. As such, this study will be focused on developing new bio-lubricant as alternative to mineral based oil lubricant. In this study, differences of the newly developed bio-lubricants compared to normal SAE 40 mineral oil were investigated. The bio-lubricants were developed using commercialized cooking canola oil with addition of ZDDP as physical property improving agent. The introduction of ZDDP into the oil was prepared by direct introduction method. The samples were tested for its kinematic viscosity and metal content determination by using standardized ASTM test methods. It was then characterized for their coefficient of friction and wear scar diameter properties by using four ball test and the wear scar image was observed under light microscope. The result from test and characterization of the newly developed bio-lubricant showed canola oil with 2 wt% of ZDDP exhibit the desirable result from the selected samples which give the lowest kinematic viscosity at 40˚C at 37.96 cSt and coefficient of friction of 0.081. The smallest wear scar diameter also was observed at 34.72 μm. As a conclusion, the positive performance of this newly developed bio-lubricant resulted in producing an alternative lubricant which can be applied to industry today as substitution of using mineral based oil lubricant.
