The samples can be analyzed on: Acid Number, Ash Content, API Gravity,Conradson Carbon Residue, Calc. Carbon Arom. Index, Flash Point PMcc, Heat of Combustion, gross, Heat of Combustion, net, Kinematic viscosity @ 50°C, Kinematic viscosity @ 100°C, Micro Carbon Residue,Pour Point Lower, Pour Point Upper,Pour Point automated, Sediments by extraction, Potential total sediment, Accelerated total sediment, Total Sulphur Content, Nitrogen, Water by distillation,water and Sediment, Al, Ni, K, Si, Na, V, Distillation , Total Carbon, Total Hydrogen, Total Nitrogen, Density at 15°C,Ash Content, Asphaltenes, Fe, Ca, P, Zn and Sum Aluminium / Silicon.

The deadline for reporting results is set on 14 February 2014. A laboratory that reports its test 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.
