AD0972-100 - ASTM D 972

Delivery To be confirmed.

AD0972-100 - Evaporation loss of greases and oils, for 2 or 4 samples.

The apparatus consists of a case containing a stainless steel bath and supporting precision flowmeters. The bath is equipped with a stainless steel cover with holes for the introduction of the evaporation cells.

Technical details:


- ASTM D 972 - IP 183

This apparatus covers the determination of the loss in mass by evaporation of lubricating greases and oils for applications where evaporation loss is a factor.
The loss of volatile materials from greases and oils can adversely effect the original performance characteristics of a lubricant and therefore could be a significant factor in evaluating a lubricant for a specific use. Such volatiles can also be considered contaminants in the environment in which the lubricant is to be used.
