IP 14 - Ramsbottom Carbon Residue

We perform lubricants quality testing by IP 14 to determine the amount of carbon residue left after evaporation and pyrolysis of a sample. The carbon residue of untreated diesel fuel correlates approximately with combustion chamber deposits. Ramsbottom Carbon Residue by IP 14 is intended to provide some indication of relative coke-forming propensity. 

We also perform carbon residue testing by ASTM D189ASTM D4530ASTM D524, and ISO 4262. 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.
