|Publication Date:||10 March 2003|
|ICS Code (Insulating oils):||29.040.10|
This test method describes the detection of corrosive sulfur compounds (both inorganic and organic) in electrical insulating oils of petroleum origin.
Mineral insulating oils may contain substances that cause corrosion under certain conditions of use. This test method is designed to detect the presence of free sulfur and corrosive sulfur compounds by subjecting copper to contact with oil under prescribed conditions.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. SI units are included for informational purposes.
