Due to less water content during its processing, RCO would have a good physical and tribological properties. However, the information related to lubrication capability of RCO is still limited. In addition, abundant source of coconut oil in Indonesia can be exploited to develop bio-lubricant for industrial usage. Thus, this present study was conducted to investigate the benefit of dry processing in extracting coconut oil and to compare coconut oil extracted through wet processing. The result highlighted that dry processing could be able to improve lubricating capabilities of coconut oil.
