Oxidation Characteristics

Oxidation stability provides an indication of the service life of a petroleum product and the potential for the product to deteriorate in the presence of oxygen. The oxidation process can produce acids which lead to corrosion and sludge that can block filters. Fuels and Lubricating oils require different test techniques, many are designed to accelerate the oxidation process by the use of higher temperatures and pressures. A number of instruments are available from Seta to determine the oxidation stability of a product and a small sample is shown below, more can be found on the Seta website.
