- General Details
Diesel engine oils can be easily tested for total base number (TBN) on-site or in the laboratory by using TLB TBN Total Base Number Analysis Kit according to ASTM D5984 . TBN is the measure of reserve alkalinity (base) added to lubricating oils to protect the engine from the corrosive effects of acids formed during the combustion of fuels containing sulfur.
TLB TBN can be easily used in the field or in a laboratory to accurately determine the TBN level in less than 5 minutes. The kits can measure the amount of reserve base from 0 to 20 mg KOH per gram of sample. Oil color does not interfere with test results because the colorimetric determination is carried out in the aqueous phase. Each kit contains everything needed to complete one test. Reagents are premeasured and sealed in glass ampules for ease-of-use and consistent results with NO use of “F” series solvents.
* TBN Units = mg KOH/gram of sample
