Description / Abstract:

This test method2 utilizes an oxygen-pressured vessel to evaluate the oxidation stability of new and in-service turbine oils having the same composition (base stock and additives) in the presence of water and a copper catalyst coil at 150°C.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

Exception—Other units are provided in parentheses (psi, grams, and inches), because they are either the industry accepted standard or the apparatus is built according the figures in this standard, or both.

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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific warning statements, see 6.2, 6.4, 6.5, 6.6, and 6.10.
