A good lubricant should have high anti wear and friction reducing characteristic; Mineral oil based lubricant posses good anti wear and friction reducing characteristic therefore these oils are widely used in maintenance applications.
The major problem associated with these mineral based lubricants is there poor biodegradability and high toxicity, which causes environmental pollution. There is a need of environment friendly lubricants for reducing environmental impact.
This paper presents utilization of castor-mahua oil blend as a substitute for mineral oil based lubricants (Servo Gear Oil) for maintenance applications. The results indicate that castor oil based lubricants have tremendous capacity for being used in maintenance application particularly in gear applications.
