AN709-Determination of Loss on drying by TGA according to ASTM E1868 Private content

A loss-on-drying test is designed to determine the amount of any kind of volatile matter in a sample when the sample is dried under specified conditions. Here, the loss-on-drying of a lubricant (cutting oil) was determined using the LABSYS evo TGA 1150, according to the procedure described in the ASTM E1868-10 standard. This test method applies to a wide variety of solid or liquid materials, mixtures or blends when the major component is stable at the test temperature.
