FTM 3013 - Determination of Particulate Contamination in Synthetic Turbine Engine Lubricants.


We perform particulate contamination testing by FTM 3013 to measure particulate contamination in synthetic turbine engine lubricating oils. FTM 3013 is a gravimetric procedure for testing turbine lubricants. The oil sample is filtered through a very fine membrane filter; the weight of contamination left on the filter is compared to the volume of the sample to calculate the amount of particulate contamination.
