    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of sediment and soluble sludge in service-aged insulating oils of petroleum origin.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D27 on Electrical Insulating Liquids and Gases, this test method was withdrawn in May 2014. This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement because it is no longer used within the industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of sediment and soluble sludge in service-aged insulating oils of petroleum origin. Also, provision is made for determining organic and inorganic content of the sediment. The method is intended primarily for oils of comparatively low viscosity; for example 5.7 to 13.0 cSt (mm2/s) at 40°C (104°F). Suitability for high viscosity oils have not been determined.

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

    1.3 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. 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.
