Determination of carbon residue, ash content, and concentration of heavy metal in virgin and spent Iraqi lubricating oils
Written by Elaf A.W. Shihab   Published On Issue 4 Vol 10, 2019
During the usage of lubricating oil, it will age, deteriorate, and lose efficiency due to its mixing with foreign matters that contain metal powder, filings, and other oils as well as additives, which result to changes in its chemical and physical properties compared to those of the virgin oil. The results showed that carbon residue and ash content for used oils increase when compared to those of the new one, but after vacuum distillation, it was decreased to 0.47 wt. %, and 0 wt. % respectively
