Oil-absorbable nonwovens were produced by melt-blown processing of polypropylene chips. The melt-blown processing conditions, such as air pressure, and gear pump speed, DCD. In this study, these three factors were chosen to produce samples. Experimental array and variance analysis of the design of experiment were used to increase the field repeatability and universality. The effect of the factors on oil absorption properties of melt-blown nonwoven fabric such as oil absorbency were evaluated. As a result, the fiber diameter decreased as gearpump speed decreased or air pressure increased. The oil absorbency increased as air pressure increased or gearpump speed decreased and with the DCD increasing the oil absorbency significantly increased.
