Tribological Performance of Ordered Mesoporous Carbons in Mineral Oils Under Boundary Lubricated Sliding


Article Preview

The tribological performance of ordered mesoporous carbons (CMK-3) as lubricant additives is investigated at ambient temperature. The effects of CMK-3 on the frictional forces, wear amounts and cycles to scuffing are measured using a ball-on-disk tester. It was found that there was little difference in the frictional forces and wear amounts of the oils with and without CMK-3. However, the scuffing time of the oil with CMK-3 was much longer than that of the pure mineral oil in sliding tests. CMK-3 were very effective on maintaining the oil gap and protecting the surfaces in boundary lubricated sliding.
