Abstract

Filter is used to flush out contaminate from the used lube oil. Lube oil is commonly used to reduce friction and wear, reduce temperature, minimize corrosion, energy reduction and reduce shock in the industrial application especially in the engine system. Consequences from the long use of the lube oil, the lube oil will be deteriorate and it need to be filtered. The purpose of this project is to redesign the filter of used lube oil and analyse the properties of the used lube oil after the filtration process whether there is some improvement or not in terms of quality of the used lube oil and to avoid depletion of oil sources. To improve the current design of the filter, SolidWorks software is used to ease the redesign process. This software is used to develop a new design of filter before the fabrication process. After the filtration process done, the used oil will be filtered and analysed by using Rotating Disc Electrode Atomic Emission Spectrometry (RDE-AES), Pensky-Martens Flash Point Tester and Heated Viscometer. The used of all of these equipment was followed the ASTM D 445, ASTM D 6596 and ASTM 93. This kind of equipment is used to identify the type element content and the viscosity of the used lube oil after undergo the filtration process. By designing this lube oil filtration process, used lube oil can be used again and it can reduce the running cost with extending life cycle of all the system components inside the engine.
