ASTM D6975 – 04 test method for Cummins M11 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Test (EGR)
This test method is commonly known as the Cummins M11 Exhaust Gas Recirculation Test (EGR). The test method defines a heavy-duty diesel engine test procedure carried under high soot conditions to determine oil performance allied with valve train wear, sludge deposits, and oil filter plugging in an EGR environment.
ASTM D6975 – 04 test method is established to determine the engine oil performance to manage the wear of the engine as well as deposits under intense operating conditions selected to speed up soot generation, valve train wear and deposit formation in a turbocharged, aftercooled four-stroke-cycle diesel engine equipped with an exhaust gas recirculation hardware.
Test operation includes a 25-min warm-up, a 2-h break-in, and 300 h in six 50-h stages. During stages A, C, and E, the engine is operated with retarded fuel injection timing and is over fueled to generate excess soot. During stages B, D, and F, the engine is operated at conditions to induce valve train wear. The engine is cleaned and assembled with new cylinder liners, pistons, piston rings, and overhead valve train components before each test. At the end of each 25-h period a forced oil drain, an oil sample, and an oil addition, equivalent to an oil consumption of 0.23 g/kW-h, is performed. The test stand is equipped with the appropriate instrumentation to control engine speed, fuel flow, and other operating parameters.
Oil performance is determined by assessing crosshead wear at 8.5 mass % soot, sludge deposits, and oil filter plugging.
This test method uses a Cummins M11 400 diesel engine with a specially modified engine block.
For calculation of Mass loss Calculate the ∆/s for each crosshead as follows:
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
