Oil-absorbable nonwovens were produced by meltblown processing of polypropylene chips. In this study, experimental array and variance analysis of the design of experiment were used to increase the field repeatability and universality. Oil absorbency was decreased, as oil absorbable nonwovens of packing density and gearpump speed were increased. Oil absorption rate was increased, as packing density was increased. Also the oil absorption rate increased with increasing gear-pump speed.
