The Evaluation of a Test Scheme for the Approval of Diesel Lubricity Additives for Refinery Use - Follow Up -
In the DGMK project 531 test criteria were defined to ensure that the refinery application of lubricity
additives would be free from unwanted side-effects.
To satisfy these test criteria a number of laboratory tests were determined, furthermore these
methods were verified in a ‘round robin’ test between the contributing laboratories in order to check
power and feasibility of the methods.
The current DGMK-Research Report 531-1 is a revised version of the DGMK-Research Report 531 which was issued 1998. The containing investigation methods has been adapted to the actual technical status and are now an improved tool for refinery requirements to guarantee freedom from negative side effects with lubricity additives.
