Standard Test Method for Measurement of Lubricant Generated Insoluble Color Bodies in In-Service Turbine Oils using Membrane Patch Colorimetry
|Publication Date:||1 October 2018|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This test method extracts insoluble contaminants from a sample of in-service turbine oil onto a patch and the color of the membrane patch is analyzed by a spectrophotometer. The results are reported as a ΔE value, within the CIE LAB scale.
This test method is not appropriate for turbine oils with dyes.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
