Determine carbon-type composition in full compliance with ASTM D2140


Knowing the carbon-type composition is important to choose the right oil for your transformer. However, ASTM D2140 is also used for other samples, such as pharmaceutical raw materials (white oils). Learn how to quickly determine carbon-type composition in full compliance with ASTM D2140.

You will get insights into:

  • The importance of carbon-type composition for insulating oils
  • How to determine carbon-type composition according to ASTM D2140
  • How to set up and perform a measurement of insulating oil samples using the modular combination of SVM + Abbemat

Target group:

  • QC managers, laboratory managers, production managers, laboratory technicians
  • Managers and scientists from R&D laboratories
  • Power generation, transmission and distribution companies
  • Manufacturers of insulating oils or other samples requiring testing of carbon-type composition
