    Manual 37 is a comprehensive, in-depth, well-referenced handbook that provides a detailed overview of ALL of the important ASTM and non-ASTM fuels and lubricants test procedures. Readers will get a thorough overview of the application-related properties being tested and an extensive discussion of the principles behind the tests and their relationship to the properties themselves.

    The information is subdivided into four sections: • Petroleum Refining Processes for Fuels and Lubricant Basestocks• Fuels• Hydrocarbons and Synthetic Lubricants• Performance/Property Testing Procedures

    Thirty-eight chapters cover:

    • Overview of petroleum oil refining processes

    • Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)

    • Aviation, automotive diesel, non-aviation gas turbine, and marine fuels

    • Gasoline and oxygenated fuel blends

    • Petroleum hydrocarbons base oil chemistry

    • Synthetic hydrocarbons

    • Environmentally-friendly fluids including those formulated from vegetable oil and synthetic ester basestocks

    • Lubricating oils for turbines, compressors (industrial and refrigeration), gears, and automotive applications

    • Metalworking fluids

    • Petroleum waxes

    • Lubricating greases

    • Oils used in non-lubricating applications, such as heat transfer fluids and metal quenchants

    • Static petroleum measurement, volatility, elemental analysis, fuel combustion characteristics, oxidation, corrosion, and viscosity

    • Properties of coke, petroleum pitch, and carbon materials

    • Hydrocarbon structural analysis procedures

    • Lubrication and wear

    • Environmental and toxicity testing

    • Statistical quality assurance testing procedures

    A MUST-HAVE for anyone in the industry involved in the formulation, use, and specification of fuels and lubricants
