Standard Test Method for Oxidative Aging of Electrical Insulating Petroleum Oils by Open-Beaker Method
|Publication Date:||10 December 1995|
|ICS Code (Insulating oils):||29.040.10|
This test method covers two procedures for subjecting electrical insulating oils to oxidative aging:
Procedure A, without a metal catalyst, and
Procedure B, with a metal catalyst.
This test method is applicable to oils used as impregnating or pressure media in electrical power transmission cables if less than 10 % of the oil evaporates during the aging procedures. It applies and is generally useful primarily in the evaluation and quality control of unused oils, either inhibited or uninhibited.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
