Abstract

Recent environment awareness has put mineral oil as the most widely used lubricant base fluid into consideration by the use of biodegradable fluid like vegetable oils or other synthetic fluids into new grease formation. But the oxidation of lubricant oil is an obstacles to develop a new lubrication of vegetables oil in automotive lubrication industries now days. The main purpose of this study is to create alternative lubricant with the addition of the antioxidizing agent into the corn oils. The commercialized corn oil is chosen to be the base oil of the lubricant with addition of Zinc Dialkyldithiophosphates (ZDDP). The samples was then prepared in 2 different that are 0 wt% and 2 wt% concentration to observe its behavior towards the testing by referring to the standard ASTM procedure methods and will be conducted which is simple testing and characterization stage. The prepared samples was then characterized in 4 stroke motorcycles engine and the result was then need to be compared and analyze the best result of lubricant characteristic obtained. In this study, few factors need to be focused such as the kinematic viscosity of the newly developed lubricant, its flash point, and the concentration of zinc and phosphorus of oil. From the testing of new lubricant, it is evident that at 2 wt% of ZDDP introduced into corn oil, the kinematic viscosity was reduced to an optimum level at 133.2cSt. At the same time the flash point are increased to 180̊ C and the result from RDE-AES showed that the dilution of ZDDP into corn oil is successful. Comparing to the result from SAE20w-40 of mineral oil and corn oil with additive of 2 wt% could had better of similar performance with SAE 20w-40 mineral oil in this study.
