Revision of D874-13a(2018) Standard Test Method for Sulfated Ash from Lubricating Oils and Additives


: The current version of D874-13a lists the Electric Muffle Furnace in apparatus. We received a request to eliminate the requirement for using an electric muffle furnace in support of ISO17025 accreditation by eliminating the requirement of an electric source for the muffle furnace. This would then allow the use of any muffle furnace, which can maintain the required temperatures. Since the source of the heat has no impact to this method technically, D02.03 consider this request, thus balloting this minor change.
