The objective of this research is to study the lubricating property of oil-air lubrication on sliding friction element. The performance of sliding friction element under different lubrication parameters and preloads were investigated by measuring the element’s temperature and friction coefficient. The results show that oil air lubrication could complete the lubrication and cooling of sliding friction element. As the oil supply is increased at the same load, speed and air supply level, the temperature rise and friction coefficient decrease, but when the oil supply is increased to 15ml/h, they remain unchanged. As the air supply is increased at the same load, speed and oil supply level, the temperature rise decreases monotonically and the friction coefficient remains steady.
