Oxidation stability (OIT) as oxidation induction time or oxidation induction temperature via DSC
ISO 11357-6 Determination of Oxidation resistance via xidation induction time (isothermal OIT) or oxidation induction temperature (dynamic OIT) by Diffential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). In the isothermal method, the sample is heated under nitrogen atmosphere to a defined temperature, then switched to an oxygen or air atmosphere and the time until oxidation begins is measured. In dynamic testing, the sample is heated under an oxygen or air atmosphere at a constant heating rate until oxidation occurs. The temperature at which oxidation begins is measured.
OIT dynamical (oxydation induction temperature) The sample is heated under oxygen or air atmosphere at a constant heating rate to oxidation, measuring the temperature at which the oxidation starts.
OIT isothermal (oxydation induction time) The sample is heated under nitrogen atmosphere at a defined temperature, then switched to an oxygen atmosphere and the time until the oxidation begins measured.
