ASTM WK29482

    New Test Method for [ASTM Research Report supporting] Automatic Particle Counting of Lubricating and Hydraulic Fluids Using Dilution Techniques to Eliminate the Contribution of Water and Interfering Soft Particles by Light Extinction

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.96.05 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    The scope of this work item is involves all things needed to propose, test, draft and ballot the ASTM Research Report needed for full repeatability and Reproducibility. At the completion of the Research Report and associated precision statement, changes will be suggested to make ASTM D7647-10 entirely consistent with the new precision statement. In particular, the solvent options listed will be identified and associated with an associated precision.

    ASTM D7416-10 includes a temporary precision statement based on a limited subset of solvents and instrument configurations.


    particle count; water masking; dilution; diluent; automatic particle counter

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
