Abstract

Vegetable oils are biodegradable lubricants which have been promoted because of the environmental friendly characteristics. The substitution of gear oil with palm oil as a base stock for an environment friendly lubricant in a transmission application is explored in this study without adding any additives. To determine the suitable composition for the lubrication, vegetable oil are mixed with the gear oil. In this report, palm oil was mixed in gear oil and it lubricating properties were tested. The mixing percentage of palm oil with the gear oil are 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% ,50% and also 100% for palm oil and gear oil. The testing was conducted using a four ball tribotester accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard D4172 and the kinematic viscosity test. The results of kinematic viscosity shows that at 10% has the closed value to the gear oil concentration. On the other hand, by mixing a 40% of the coefficient of friction, frictional torque and the wear scar diameter reached the lowest value compared to the commercial lubricant oil. As a conclusion, the composition of palm oil with the gear oil has a better performance compared to the commercial lubricant or pure palm oil.
