Abstract

Lubricant oil based mineral oil is widely used in the lubrication industry. But due to the stronger environment concern, biodegradable lubricant oil such as Palm Oil Methyl Ester have been introduce as the base lubricant or as the lubricant additive. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of Palm Oil Methyl Ester as the lubricant additive in friction and wear reduction by using the ball on disc machine. Johnson Baby Oil is used as the base lubricant and Palm Oil Methyl Ester is used as the lubricant additive. The different percentage on lubricant mixture have been used in this study. The test is conducted by using the three different nominal load which are 10 N, 30 Nand 60 N under the same speed, 10 m/min. For the other test, 30 N have been used under the two different speed, 10 m/min and 50 m/min. 30% of lubricant mixture produce the lowest coefficient of friction for each load. The presence of POME in lubricant mixture reducing the coefficient of friction. 30 N produce significant different of coefficient friction between the lubricant with POME and lubricant without POME. Lubricant with the presence of POME also reducing the wear area.
