The objective of this FYP is to develop improved model of the centrifugal separator for online purification of contaminated lubricant. The scope of study covers mathematical modeling and modeling of simulation using FLUENT software. The experimentation study is excluded from the scope of study. The mathematical model is developed to understand the mixture behavior. Then, possible improvement method in terms of purification rate and/or quality is tested out using FLUENT simulation software. After that, current lubricant purification methods are established and better separation system is studied. Validation of the results from the mathematical model and FLUENT software are done through journals. It is found that the velocity profile of the mixture of water and oil is du = 338467238.3 dy. The rotational speed of cones at 800 rpm produce better separation compared to rotational speed of cones at 1400 rpm. A new separation system is studied to boost purification rate and oil quality
