– Malaysia is well known for their production of palm oil and makes them the third in place in ranking for the whole world that produces palm oil. This palm oil has lots of benefit and can be used in many ways. The depletion of the world crude oil reserve, increasing crude oil prices and issues related to conservation has brought about renewed interest in the bio-based materials. Emphasis on the development of renewable, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly industrial fluids, such as lubricants has resulted in the use of natural oils and fats for non-edible purposes. In this study, the effect of nanoclay as additive in palm oil lubricant to oil pressure profile in journal bearing test rig were investigated. Palm oil bio-lubricant with nanoclay was mixed using an ultrasonic mixer. Result obtain were compared with commercial mineral oil lubricants.
