Tamson Oxidation bath for CEC L-109-14

For 2020, the European Union is mandating a minimum of 10% bio components in transport fuels. However, increasing those components promotes the risk of engine oil oxidation. For this reason, the CEC published a new oxidation test method ( CEC L-109-14 ). Tamson is the first manufacturer to implement the test method in a 6 position oil bath.
