ASTM D524 - Ramsbottom Carbon Residue of Petroleum Products (MCRT)


We perform MCRT testing by ASTM D524 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. MCRT by ASTM D524 is intended to provide some indication of relative coke-forming propensity.

We also perform carbon residue testing by ASTM D189ASTM D4530IP 14, 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.
