ASTM – the oil sampling standard D8112-17 – was updated in the end of 2017. The updated standard deals with making sampling standardized in energy industry’s more demanding targets like turbines and oil systems. The standard can be applied as a good foundation for proper sampling in different operating environments.
Time for the traditional annual oil analysis is here. During the year we have received hundreds of samples, some of them good and others not so good. When talking about samples one can never undermine the effect that the actual sampling can have in a sample.
