Total Base Number for Petroleum Products 


ARO Scientific has created certified reference materials to support quality control of total base number for petroleum products.

Why is total base number important?

The neutralization number, which is expressed as base number, is a measure of this amount of basic substance in the oil always under the conditions of the test. The neutralization number is used as a guide in the quality control of lubricating oil formulations. It sometimes is used as a measure of lubricant degradation in service.

Verification of measuring equipment, method validation, method verification, or other quality control processes applicable for the test method ASTM D2896, or test methods IP 276, ISO 3771, where applicable.
