KC4040 ASTM Oil Test Centrifuges

Test Method
Centrifugation provides a convenient means of determining sediment and water content in crude oil, fuel oils, middle distillate fuels and biodiesel. Also used in determining the precipitation number, demulsibility characteristics, trace sediments, and insoluble in used lubricating oils.
