Details on asmt test methods for grease analysis can be found in other reference material. Confirm the presence of the several bases by suitable chemical tests, following any standard scheme of qualitative analysis.

Contact with us now Your mail: Zinc is shown by the yellow color of the ash while hot, and lead may be indicated by the presence of metallic globules or by the yellow color of the ash when cold. You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Alternative Test Method 9.

Contact with water liberates large amounts of heat running the acid in carefully from a pipet inserted under a small watch glass covering the crucible.

A white infusible ash, practically insoluble in water but imparting to it an alkaline reaction, may indicate calcium, with or without magnesium or aluminum. R128 Routine Test Method 8. In some cases, these constituents can react with strong acid or alkaline solutions.

The constituents that can be determined are soap, unsaponifiable matter petroleum oil, and so forthwater, free alkalinity, free fatty acid, fat, glycerin, and insolubles.

This test method is intended primarily for application to greases containing thickeners that are essentially insoluble in wstm -hexane, and to greases that cannot be analyzed by conventional methods because of the presence of such constituents as nonpetroleum fluids or nonsoap-type thickeners, or both.

ASTM D128 – 98(2014)E1

Free Alkali and Free Acid. NOTE 4 qstm This test method gives more concordant results than the routine method Section 8but it requires more time and manipulation. Click to learn more. Moreover, if much Na2CO3 or K2CO3 is present, the ash is fusible and often encloses carbon, making complete removal of the latter very difficult. If only one base is present, a quantitative determination is, in general, unnecessary.

It is, however, sometimes required.
