More levels may be used, but at the expense of increased complexity. Alternatively, if failure modes are underrepresented, the distribution may be narrow, and the calculated limits may be too low. In the case where ZnSe windows are used, when the oil is introduced into the cell a significant fringe pattern is typically still observed because the refractive index of the ZnSe is much greater than that of an oil sample. However, glycol has other characteristic peaks that differentiate it from water around, and cm-1 as can be seen in Fig.

A baseline point at cm-1 is used. We need your help to maintenance this website. This assumes a test result for which the value increases with time. Thus, the fringe pattern essentially disappears from the spectrum. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. If too many examples of failures are included, the distribution may be broad and calculated limits may be too high.

If the oil is exposed to severe nitration conditions, the nitration products in the oil will cause: Height to Negative peak height Area to Area to Verification peak: The baseline for carbonyl oxidation measurement, referred to as oxidation, is taken at cm-1 and the maximum peak height between and cm-1 is determined. Other techniques based on computer fitting and removing the regular sine wave pattern in the absorbance spectrum, using cell windows with antireflective coatings, or slightly 9wedging9 the cell windows.


The materials leading to this feature are nitrate esters. This includes varnish or lacquer in hot areas of the engine, and sludge in cooler areas of the engine which may lead to ring sticking and filter plugging, respectively Increase in blow-by which will lead to top-end wear.

Home E E July 24, Author: Spectral characteristics of noted fuels have been found to vary. NOTE 7—Alternate method for nitration has been suggested to eliminate metal soap contribution using peak at with baseline minima in range to and to For this reason, the measurement area developed r2412 monitoring levels and trends of ZDDP has been found to be equally useful for monitoring tricresyl phosphate TCP.

From a plot or table of the change in absorbance with time, judgments about when to change the lubricant can be made. The analysis parameters for spectral subtraction are similar to those for the direct trending approach.

Height to Min. In addition, there is a critical need to match the new-oil reference properly, as discussed earlier.

ASTM E2412

This is why weathered fuel should be used to calibrate the system and calibration of fuel should be done based ast, fuels obtained regionally. Exact data acquisition parameters will vary depending on instrument manufacturer but most systems should be able to collect an absorbance spectrum e2421 for most measurements in less than one minute.

A vertical bar is used to represent the number of oils for which the test result falls between the two abscissa values. Water is measured as depicted in Fig.

Checking suspect fuel sources is suggested to verify presence of indicator absorbance bands. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. This approach will generate incorrect results, particularly for antifreeze, fuel and water.

For example, infrared spectroscopy cannot determine wear metal levels or any other type of elemental analysis. For example, infrared asmt cannot determine wear metal levels or any sstm type of elemental analysis.


Diesel fuel is brought to approximately degrees Centigrade then held at this temperature for 30 minutes. Quantification of gasoline is calibrated using a peak area over the range of to cm The wide variety of potential contaminants suggests an equally wide variety of measurement methods may be desirable.

Glycol has the same broad hydroxyl -OH group feature, centered on cm-1, as seen for water. Last previous edition approved in as E— The histogram in Fig.

It is better to make a choice of lubricant type and use it consistently atm the oil type is not known. Because the soot absorbance obtained is a measure of the amount of tilt in the spectral baseline, a correction should be applied to the data to account for the contribution of the transmission cell to the baseline tilt if the background is taken without the cell in the beam path.

It is the responsibility of the user of this e24112 to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Level Zero and Level One Tests. Calculations should be made based on the actual amount of glycol-based antifreeze added, not on the amount of the Area to Height at Height at Verification peaks: If the population of machines is very e241, less than one overhaul period may be sufficient. Even though the peaks at and cm-1 are larger than the one at cm-1, it is asttm difficult to accurately measure them in the presence of other oil breakdown product.

The baseline shift caused by soot is affected by the amount of soot present and the effective particle size. Contaminants monitored include water, e241, ethylene glycol, fuels and incorrect oil.
