Ten peer-reviewed papers cover the latest industry trends on suffering points, evolving lubricant /antioxidant additive technologies, and changing equipment designs and operating conditions, with a focus on how these factors impact oxidation.
It addresses how to improve current ASTM bench tests used as predicative tools for measuring oxidative degradation, including:
D 943 Oxidation Characteristics of Inhibited Mineral Oils
D 4310 Sludge Tendency
D 2272 Oxidation Stability of Steam Turbine Oils by Rotating Pressure Vessel
STP 1489 is a valuable resource to those in the lubricant and turbine industry, including original equipment manufacturers, end users, lubricant producers, lubricant additive suppliers, test equipment manufacturers, and standard test method developers.
