A suggestion:

Check records to determine oil replenishment consumption and weight of steel
treated in same time period.  Then, for several batches--the number will
dependupon circumstances found as you go along--weigh the filter before and
after known weights or counts of steel were quenched.  You'll then be in a
position to make certain inferences by doing proportions.
