Oxidation and the Testing of Turbine Oils

Editor(s): C.A. Migdal, A. B. Wardlow, J.L. Ameye

Ten peer-reviewed papers cover the latest industry trends on suffering points, evolving lubricant /antioxidant additive technologies, and changing equipment designs and operating conditions, with a focus on how these factors impact oxidation.

It addresses how to improve current ASTM bench tests used as predicative tools for measuring oxidative degradation, including:
• D 943 Oxidation Characteristics of Inhibited Mineral Oils
• D 4310 Sludge Tendency
• D 2272 Oxidation Stability of Steam Turbine Oils by Rotating Pressure Vessel

STP 1489 is a valuable resource to those in the lubricant and turbine industry, including original equipment manufacturers, end users, lubricant producers, lubricant additive suppliers, test equipment manufacturers, and standard test method developers.
