About This Item


Full Description

This is a reaffirmation of ASHRAE Standard 86-1994. This standard falls under the Standards Committee classification of Standard Method of Measurement. This standard was prepared under the auspices of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). It may be used, in whole or in part, by an association or government agency with due credit to ASHRAE. Adherence is strictly on a voluntary basis and merely in the interests of obtaining uniform standards throughout the industry.

This standard describes a standard test method for measuring the floc point (waxing tendency) of refrigeration grade oils. Petroleum-derived lubricating oils are mixtures of large numbers of chemically distinct hydrocarbon molecules. At the low temperatures encountered in the low-pressure side of refrigeration units, some of the larger molecules separate from the bulk of the oil in the form of wax-like deposits.

Units: Dual
