Abstract

Experimental evidence showing the importance of eletrical double-layer forces in filtration of lubricating oil is presented. These forces are shown to be present in a wide variety of lubricating oils and are seen to be a function of the particle and fiber size, the zeta potential of the particle and fiber media, and their separation distance. The implications of these forces and their interaction with the London-van der Waals forces and the resultant interaction potential and its possible effects on the performance of oil filters is discussed. © 1991.
