Scope and field of application
This International Standard specifies a method for evaluating Petroleum oils and other fluids to indicate their effectiveness in preventing the rusting of ferrous Parts should water become mixed with the oil/fluid. The method is for application to inhibited mineral oils including steam turbine oils, circulating oils and hydraulic oils and non-hydrocarbon fluids including fluids denser than water.
In many cases, such as in the gears of a steam-turbine, water tan become mixed with the lubricant, and rusting of ferrous Parts may occur. This test indicates the effectiveness of inhibited mineral oils aid in preventing this type of rusting.
