ASTM International releases new edition of best-selling fuels manual

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Nov. 20, 2019 – Today, global standards organization ASTM International announced the release of the Fuels and Lubricants Handbook: Technology, Properties, Performance, and Testing. The handbook is the second edition of the best-selling fuels manual.

Originally published in 2003, the second edition features fourteen new chapters, with most chapters completely rewritten.

The new fuels manual contains 49 chapters from nearly 100 authors that address a variety of important petroleum technologies, including:

  • General material production,
  • Pipeline corrosion,
  • Non-petroleum process fluids and ionic fluids,
  • Fuel cleanliness,
  • Metalworking and machining fluids,
  • Volatility,
  • Asphaltenes,
  • Environmental characteristics of fuels and lubricants,
  • Bench test modeling,
  • Biofuels,
  • Lubricant friction and wear testing, and more.

Although this manual serves as a resource for those working at petroleum labs, oil refineries, and lubricant and grease plants, it would also be helpful for petroleum chemists, engineers, researchers, technicians, and those in academia.
