Abstract

Rice husk ceramic (RHC) particles were prepared and its effect on the lubrication performance of liquid paraffin (LP) was investigated using a four-ball tribometer to expand the comprehensive utilisation of rice husk. The wear and friction mechanisms of RHC particles were also investigated. Results showed that RHC particles can strengthen the anti-wear and friction reduction properties of LP in the presence of 2 wt% polyisobutylene succinimide (T154A) at 75 or 100 °C. The friction and wear mechanisms of RHC particles were ascribed to high temperature, which ensures the involvement of RHC particles in the formation of boundary lubrication film.
