ASTM D4951 - Additive Elements in Lubricating Oils by Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP)
We perform testing by ASTM D4951 to measure the barium, boron, calcium, copper, magnesium, molybdenum, phosphorus, sulfur, and zinc in lubricating oils. Lubricating oils are typically blends of additive packages, and their specifications are determined, in part, by elemental composition. This test method can be used to determine if additive packages and unused lubricating oils meet specifications with respect to elemental composition.
We also perform metals testing by ASTM D5185M, ASTM D7111, ASTM D7691, and EPA 6010. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types. Click on the test method number to learn more about each test.
