Summary of this proficiency test:

On 24 October 2012 the proficiency test on Hydraulic Oil started with 43 participants from 27 different countries.

On that date, the samples were dispatched to the laboratories. Enclosed to the samples were the instructions to the participants for this proficiency test, forms for the reporting of the analysis results and the material safety data sheet (MSDS).

The samples have to be analyzed on: Total Acid Number, Density @ 15C, Flash Point PMcc, Kinematic viscosity @ 40C, Kinematic viscosity @ 100C, Water, Al, Ba, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pb, Li, Mg, Mn, Mo, Ni, Na, Si, Ag, Sn, Ti, V, Ca, P and Zn.

The deadline for reporting results is set on 23 November 2012. A laboratory that sends in results after deadline will definitely not get direct feedback in case any of its results are suspect! So be in good time to get the most out of this proficiency test.
