Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active axtm of the standard. Oxidation, nitration and sulfonation of base stocks are monitored as evidence of degradation.
This creates a huge issue for some engines, mainly natural gas engines as they operate at higher combustion temperatures and therefore high Nitrous Oxides NOx are formed. The infrared data generated by this practice is typically used in conjunction with other testing methods.
For example, infrared spectroscopy cannot determine wear metal levels or any other type of elemental analysis.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Molecular analysis of lubricants and hydraulic fluids by FT-IR spectroscopy produces direct information on molecular species of interest, including additives, fluid breakdown products and e4212 contaminants, and thus complements wear metal and other analyses used in a condition monitoring program 13- 2.
Through normal blow-by, when nitrogen oxide products enter the lubricant, the react with the moisture and become acidic in nature and rapidly accelerate the oxidation rate of the oil. While calibration to generate physical concentration units may be possible, it is unnecessary or impractical in many cases. Testing Equipment used by us in our laboratory: It is not the intent of this practice to establish or recommend normal, cautionary, warning or alert limits for any machinery.
Level Zero and Level One Tests. If the oil is exposed to severe nitration conditions, the nitration products in the oil will cause:.
These warning or alarm limits can be a fixed maximum or minimum value for comparison to a single measurement or can also be based on a rate of change of the response measured 1. Such limits should be established in conjunction with advice and guidance asstm the machinery manufacturer and maintenance group.
Ast the oil is exposed to severe nitration conditions, the nitration products in the oil will cause: This includes varnish or lacquer in hot areas of the engine, and sludge in cooler areas of the engine which may lead to ring sticking and filter plugging, respectively Increase in blow-by which will lead to top-end wear.
This axtm is designed for monitoring in-service lubricants and can aid in the determination of general machinery health and is not designed for the analysis of lubricant composition, lubricant performance or additive package formulations.
The testing of Nitration is done in our laboratory by using FTIR Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, which can be coupled with Acid Number Test and Viscosity to determine the extent of nitration and degradation of the oil.
A number of physical property tests complement wear metal analysis and are used to provide information on lubricant condition for example, Test Methods DDand D It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Increase in viscosity due to thickning of the oil Increase in the acidity of the oil resulting in increase in Acid Number AN Increase in insolubles. The practice as presented is not intended for the prediction of lubricant physical properties for example, viscosity, total base number, total acid number, etc.
No other units of e24112 are included in this standard. Measurement and data interpretation parameters are presented to allow operators of different FT-IR spectrometers to compare results by employing the same techniques.
Contaminants monitored include water, soot, ethylene glycol, fuels and incorrect oil. Nitration Testing Equipment used by us in our Laboratory. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Nitration occours when there is sufficient heat and pressure in the combustion chambers of the engines which breakes the atmospheric nitrogen molecule down to two atoms which thereafter react with oxygen to form Nitrous Oxides NOx.
The objective of this monitoring activity is to diagnose the operational condition of the machine based on fault conditions observed in the oil. Warning or alarm limits the point where maintenance action on a machine being monitored is recommended or required can be determined through statistical analysis, history of the same or similar equipment, round robin tests or other methods in conjunction with correlation to equipment performance.
