Standard Test Method for Determination of High Temperature Deposits by Thermo-Oxidation Engine Oil Simulation Test
|Publication Date:||1 June 2009|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This test method covers the procedure to determine the amount of deposits formed by automotive engine oils utilizing the thermo-oxidation engine oil simulation test (TEOST2).3 An interlaboratory study (see Section 17) has determined it to be applicable over the range from 10 to 65 mg total deposits.
NOTE 1-Operational experience with the test method has shown the test method to be applicable to engine oils having deposits over the range from 2 to 180 mg total deposits.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
Milligrams (mg), grams (g), millilitres (mL), and litres are the units provided, because they are an industry accepted standard.
Exception-Provided psig for information only in 6.2.
