ASTM D6448 - Specification for Industrial Burner Fuels from Used Lubricating Oils
We perform lubricants quality and conformance testing by specification ASTM D6448, which covers four grades of lubricating oil blends. The four grades of lubricating oil blends are known as RFO4, RFO5L, RFO5H, and RFO6. These grades of oil are made in whole or in part with hydrocarbon-based used or reprocessed lubricating oil or functional fluids, such as preservative and hydraulic fluids.

The following is a list of tests required by Specification ASTM D6448. Some of these tests are customized for this exact specification. Alcor Petrolab and Phoenix Chemical Laboratory specialize in unusual and custom testing, and our testing capabilities are continuing to expand; contact one of our laboratories today to discuss the exact testing you need.
