OilLab 580 Noack

ASTM D5800

IP 421

CE marked



Determination of the evaporation loss of lubricating oils (particularly engine oils).

Procedure A uses the Noack evaporative tester equipment.

Procedure B uses the automated non-Woods metal Noack evaporative apparatus.


Measuring Noack Principle

A quantity of 65 grams of sample is heated to a specific temperature and maintained for 1 hour while it is enclosed in a crucible, the crucible’s cover is shaped to allow a constant vacuum of -2 mbar to remove from the crucible the evaporating portion of the sample.

At the end of the test, the sample is cooled and then reweighted: the difference, reported in percentage, represent the sample’s Evaporation Loss by the Noack
