Fuels and Lubricants Handbook: Technology, Properties, Performance, and Testing (Print)


Manual 37 is a comprehensive, in-depth, well-referenced handbook that provides a detailed overview of ALL of the important ASTM and non-ASTM fuels and lubricants test procedures. Readers will get a thorough overview of the application-related properties being tested and an extensive discussion of the principles behind the tests and their relationship to the properties themselves.

The information is subdivided into four sections: • Petroleum Refining Processes for Fuels and Lubricant Basestocks• Fuels• Hydrocarbons and Synthetic Lubricants• Performance/Property Testing Procedures

Thirty-eight chapters cover:

• Overview of petroleum oil refining processes

• Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)

• Aviation, automotive diesel, non-aviation gas turbine, and marine fuels

• Gasoline and oxygenated fuel blends

• Petroleum hydrocarbons base oil chemistry

• Synthetic hydrocarbons

• Environmentally-friendly fluids including those formulated from vegetable oil and synthetic ester basestocks

• Lubricating oils for turbines, compressors (industrial and refrigeration), gears, and automotive applications

• Metalworking fluids

• Petroleum waxes

• Lubricating greases

• Oils used in non-lubricating applications, such as heat transfer fluids and metal quenchants

• Static petroleum measurement, volatility, elemental analysis, fuel combustion characteristics, oxidation, corrosion, and viscosity

• Properties of coke, petroleum pitch, and carbon materials

• Hydrocarbon structural analysis procedures

• Lubrication and wear

• Environmental and toxicity testing

• Statistical quality assurance testing procedures

A MUST-HAVE for anyone in the industry involved in the formulation, use, and specification of fuels and lubricants

 MNL37  No other book provides the extensive, in-depth coverage of fluid properties and test methodologies together.
