Price: $174
About the Course

This course covers the determination of the amount of carbon residue left after evaporation and pyrolysis of an oil, and it is intended to provide some indication of relative coke-forming propensity. This test method is generally applicable to relatively nonvolatile petroleum products which partially decompose on distillation at atmospheric pressure.

The course takes approximately 1 hour to complete and includes instructional video content, interactive knowledge checks, and a self-grading quiz. Downloadable resources include a pdf of the standard.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Recall the apparatus and related components used to determine the Ramsbottom carbon residue of petroleum products
  • Identify the steps to check the performance of the furnace and thermocouple used for this test method
  • Identify the procedure to determine the carbon residue left after evaporation and pyrolysis
  • Recognize the procedure for carbon residue on 10 % (V/V) distillation residue
  • Identify the equation and reporting requirements for this test method
  • Recall the performance characteristics of the Ramsbottom Coking Furnace, including the coke bulb filling device


Anyone who runs the D524 test method or who needs an understanding of the test method and how it is properly run.
