ASTM D4310 - Determination of Sludging and Corrosion Tendencies of Inhibited Mineral Oils


We perform testing by ASTM D4310 to evaluate the tendency of mineral oil based lubricants and hydraulic oils to corrode and form sludge during oxidation. Insoluble material may form in oils that are subjected to oxidizing conditions. Significant formation of oil insolubles or metal corrosion products, or both, during this test may indicate that the oil will form insolubles or corrode metals, or both, during field service. Sludging and Corrosion by ASTM D4310 evaluates the tendency of inhibited mineral oil based steam turbine lubricants and mineral oil based anti-wear hydraulic oils to corrode copper catalyst metal and to form sludge during oxidation in the presence of oxygen, water, and copper and iron metals at an elevated temperature.
