Abstract

In this work, Response Surface Methodology for ensuring optimality in solvent extraction process for recycling used lubricating engine oil to obtain base oil was carried out using 2-propanol, 1-butanol and ethanol as solvent. Solvent oil ratio (SOR), temperature and contact time were considered as operating variables while percent sludge removal (PSR) as response. Historical Data Design with one hundred and eight runs was employed for the study. The optimized recycling process yielded maximum PSR (11.27) utilizing 1-butanol at temperature 50o C, SOR 3:1 and contact time of 30 minutes. At temperature 50o C, SOR 3:1 and contact time 20 minutes, PSR (7.97) was the optimum using 2-Propanol. In the case of mixture of 1-butanol and ethanol, the maximum PSR (8.41) was obtained at temperature 50o C, SOR 3:1 and contact time 30 minutes.
