Revision of D4378-22 Standard Practice for In-Service Monitoring of Mineral Turbine Oils for Steam, Gas, and Combined Cycle Turbines


“D4378 currently includes language summarizing the impact of uncontrolled microbial in turbine oil systems and considerations for collecting samples intended for microbiological testing. Recently approved D8506 Standard Guide for Microbial Contamination and Biodeterioration in Turbine Oils and Turbine Oil Systems provided more detailed information about both of these topics. This work item is for revisions to D4378 to include reference to Guide D8506.”
