Methods of test for petroleum and its products Part 48: Determination of oxidation characteristics of lubricating oil
|Publication Date:||1 January 2011|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This method indicates the tendency of a lubricating oil to deteriorate on oxidation under specified conditions. A measure of the deterioration is obtained by comparison of the viscosity and carbon residue before and after oxidation. The test is not suitable for additive-type oils (other than those containing ashless additives) or those which form solid products or lose more than 10% by evaporation during the test.
