COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE DIFFERENT METHODS USED IN RE-REFINING USED LUBRICATING OIL

  • Type:Project
  • Pages:57
  • Format:Microsoft Word
(Chemical Engineering Project Topics & Materials)

Engine oils are made from crude oil and its derivatives by mixing of certain other chemicals (additives) for improving their certain properties. Lubricating oil is used to lubricate moving parts of engine, reducing friction, protecting against wear, removing contaminants from the engine, act as a cleaning agent, and act as an anti corrosion and cooling agent.

Accordingly, this research effort focuses on comparative study of re-refined engine oils by acid treatment, acid/clay treatment, solvent extraction/clay treatment, and activated charcoal/clay treatment methods. Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) was used as solvent in the solvent extraction/clay treatment method.

            Different properties of refined oil and waste oil were analysed, such as fire and flash point, pour point, specific gravity, ash content, viscosity, moisture ratio and acid value.

    Abstract This study produced bio-lubricant with palm kernel oil and compared its quality with Tonimas Oil ( A commercial lubricating oil in the market). Palm kernel oil based lubricant was produced by dissolving 12.5ml of Zinc Dialkyl Dithiophosphate and  47.5ml of Ethylene propylene into 400ml of PKO and stiring them together to achieve a...

    ABSTRACT The technique used worldwide while drilling is known as overbalanced drilling. Which is defined as the drilling process where the hydrostatic pressure used exceeds the formation pressure. This is done with the main purpose of “killing” the well. However, there are numerous problems that accompany overbalanced drilling. Such problems... Continue Reading
