Oils & Fuels Analysis (OIL PT)

  • Currently not included in our UKAS scope of accreditation
  • The LGC OIL scheme is designed specifically to assist chemists and engineers working in the refinery, fuel, used oil and lubricant laboratories.
  • Petroleum products, such as oils and fuels, are tested throughout their life span from the time the oil is taken from the ground to beyond the petroleum recyclers. The concentration of contaminants and trace elements is vital in ensuring the quality of oil and petroleum products.
  • Regulations related to cleanliness standards in engines, contamination particles and water in diesel fuel, and many more, mean it is essential that laboratories performing these measurements are capable of producing accurate data.
  • If a laboratory is performing the analysis of oils and fuels according to ASTM, IP and ISO protocols, participating in the LGC OIL proficiency testing scheme will enable it to monitor performance and compare it with that of other laboratories worldwide. Consistent good performance will allow laboratories to demonstrate to third parties, customers, regulators and accreditation bodies the quality of their results.
  • Scheme year operates January to December
