DUS 2046:2018 Standard test method for evaporation loss of lubricating oils by the Noack method, First Edition. (43 page(s), in English)
This Draft Uganda Standard covers four procedures for determining the evaporation loss of lubricating oils (particularly engine oils). Procedure A uses the Noack evaporative tester equipment; Procedure B uses the automated non-Woods metal Noack evaporative apparatus; Procedure C uses Selby-Noack volatility test equipment, and Procedure D uses the Noack S2 test equipment. The test method relates to one set of operating conditions but may be readily adapted to other conditions when required. Noack results determined using Procedures A and C provide equivalent results and Procedures B and D provide equivalent results. However, A/C compared to B/D show consistent differences. Procedure A/C give slightly lower results versus Procedure B/D on formulated engine oils, while Procedure A/C give higher results versus Procedure B/D on base stocks.
