ASTM D6823 - Specification for Commercial Boiler Fuels with Used Lubricating Oils
We perform testing by specification ASTM D6823, which covers four grades of fuel oil used in industrial burners and commercial boilers but not in residences. This specification covers four grades of fuel oil made of at least 25% used lubricating oils; the grades of fuel oil are RFC4, RFC5L, RFC5H, and RFC6.
