ICS Code (Insulating oils): 29.040.10
significance And Use:

5.1 Oil and oil-immersed electrical insulation materials may decompose under the influence of thermal and electrical stresses, and in doing so, generate gaseous decomposition products of varying... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers three procedures for extraction and measurement of gases dissolved in electrical insulating oil having a viscosity of 20 cSt (100 SUS) or less at 40°C (104°F), and the identification and determination of the individual component gases extracted. Other methods have been used to perform this analysis.

1.2 The individual component gases that may be identified and determined include:

  Hydrogen-H

2

  Oxygen-O

2

  Nitrogen-N

2

  Carbon monoxide-CO
  Carbon dioxide-CO

2

  Methane-CH

4

  Ethane-C

2H6

  Ethylene-C

2H4

  Acetylene-C

2H2

  Propane-C

3H8

  Propylene-C

3H6

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific warning statements see 6.1.8, 30.2.2 and 30.3.1.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
