Standard Test Method for Shear Stability of Polymer Containing Fluids Using a European Diesel Injector Apparatus
|Publication Date:||1 June 2020|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This test method covers the evaluation of the shear stability of polymer-containing fluids. The test method measures the percent viscosity loss at 100 °C of polymercontaining fluids when evaluated by a diesel injector apparatus procedure that uses European diesel injector test equipment. The viscosity loss reflects polymer degradation due to shear at the nozzle.
NOTE 1-Test Method D2603 has been used for similar evaluation of shear stability; limitations are as indicated in the significance statement. No detailed attempt has been undertaken to correlate the results of this test method with those of the sonic shear test method.
NOTE 2-This test method uses test apparatus as defined in CEC L-14-A-93. This test method differs from CEC-L-14-A-93 in the period of time required for calibration.
NOTE 3-Test Method D5275 also shears oils in a diesel injector apparatus but may give different results.
NOTE 4-This test method has different calibration and operational requirements than withdrawn Test Method D3945.
NOTE 5-Test Method D7109 is a similar procedure that measures shear stability at both 30 and 90 injection cycles. This test method uses 30 injection cycles only.
