1.1 This test method provides for the determination of the amount of engine oil volatilized at 371°C (700°F). This test method is applicable to engine oils containing high molecular weight components that need not elute from a gas chromatographic column.
1.1.1 This test method can also be used to determine the amount of oil volatilized at any temperature between 238 and 371°C, if so desired.
1.2 This test method is limited to samples having an initial boiling point (IBP) greater than 238°C (460°F).
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values stated in inch-pound units are provided for information only.
1.4 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 precautionary statements, see 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4
