ASTM D2272 - Oxidation Stability of Steam Turbine Oils by Rotating Pressure Vessel (RPVOT)
We perform lubricants quality testing by ASTM D2272 to evaluate the oxidation of steam turbine oils by rotating pressure vessel (RPVOT). Oxidation Stability by ASTM D2272 utilizes an oxygen-pressured vessel to evaluate the oxidation stability of new and in-service turbine oils having the same composition (base stock and additives) in the presence of water and a copper catalyst coil at 150°C. The estimate of oxidation stability is useful in controlling the continuity of this property for batch acceptance of production lots having the same operation. This test method is also used to assess the remaining oxidation test life of in-service oils.
We also perform oxidation stability testing by ASTM D2112, ASTM D2274, ASTM D2440, ASTM D525, ASTM D7462, ASTM D873, ASTM D942, ASTM D943, DIN 51587, EN 15751, IP 142, IP 388, IP 40, ISO 12205, ISO 4623, and ISO 7536. 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.
