Abstract

The compressor is the heart of the refrigeration system and to enhance its performance, extend its life and preserve its moving parts such as pistons, rotors, valves, connecting rods and cranks lubrication should be improved. Recently the studies focus on the use nanoparticles with lubricants in refrigeration and air conditioning systems because of their significant impact on improving the coefficient of performance of these systems as well as thermophysical properties of pure lubricating oils and thus reducing energy consumption. In this study nanoparticles were synthesis in an easy and cheap way and from materials available in chemistry laboratories to overcome the cost barrier that is the main obstacle to the use of nanoparticles in most applications as following copper oxide, cerium oxide, mixture1 consisted of 50% copper oxide with 50% cerium oxide, mixture2 consisted of 60% copper oxide with 40% cerium oxide, mixture 3 consisted of 70% copper oxide with 30% cerium oxide, mixture 4 consisted of 40% copper oxide with 60% cerium oxide, and mixture5 consisted of 30% copper oxide with 70% cerium oxide to study their effectiveness on enhancing the viscosity and density of polyolester (POE) lubricating oil using mathematical equations available from previous studies.
