Summary of this proficiency test:

On 20 October 2010 the proficiency test on Hydraulic Oil started with 27 participants from 19 different countries.

On that date, the samples (#0986 and #0987) 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, Extractable Organic Chloride, Total Organic Halogens (TOX), 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 19 November 2010. 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.
