Experimental Study of Nanoparticle as Oil Additives
Cu nanoparticles as N32 base oil additives were studied in the paper. The structure of Cu nanoparticlcs was characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and X-ray powder diffraction spectroscope (XRD). The widely used steel-steel friction system was chosen to test the feasibility and practicality of Cu nanoparticles as bearing lubricant additives. The results show that N32 base oil with 0.5% Cu nanoparticle can improve the test sample contact fatigue life than pure N32 base oil.
