Effect of Diluted Nano-Oil on the Anti-Wear and Friction Properties
Experimental work procedures on the anti-wear and friction properties were conducted to investigate the effect of nano-oil diluted with biodiesel fuel. In this work, an optimal composition (0.5 vol.%) of 70nm hBN nanoparticles was dispersed into SAE15W40 diesel engine oil by using sonication technique as a nano-oil. The homogenize nano-oil then was diluted by four difference percentages of B100 biodiesel fuel (5%, 10%, 15%, 20%). The anti-wear and friction tests were performed using four-ball tribometer according to the ASTM D-4172 standard. Result found that the addition of biodiesel fuel into homogenize nano-oil increases the coefficient of friction (COF) drastically by 25 ~ 96%, as compared with nano-oil and the wear rate also increase approximately by 9.68 ~ 19.50%.
