Additive Elements in Lubricating Oils - ASTM D7751

AppNote XRF1856: Additive Elements in Lubricating Oils - ASTM D7751

Background

Controlling additive elements when blending new, fresh lubricating oils is vital to ensure correct lubrication properties and minimizing production waste and product rejection. EDXRF is a fast and simple analytical technique for use by non-technical operators, yet powerful enough for expert use in the research & development of new lube oil formulations. To meet the industry needs in production and research Rigaku NEX DE offers compliance to D7751 Standard Test Method for Additive Elements in Lubricating Oils by EDXRF Analysis for P, S, Cl, Ca, Zn and Mo.
