NPFC - MIL-HDBK-113
GUIDE FOR THE SELECTION OF LUBRICANTS, FUNCTIONAL FLUIDS, PRESERVATIVES AND SPECIALITY PRODUCTS FOR USE IN GROUND EQUIPMENT SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||24 April 1989|
This Handbook establishes design guides for selection of suitable lubricants, power transmission fluids, and corrosion preventatives for use in ground equipment systems, which conform to approved specifications, as required by MIL-SID-838. It includes descriptive material relative to applications, limitations, and federal stock classification, where applicable, and material statements considered to be beneficial to field personnel. Various tables and figures list or show specific requirements and characteristics of a number of the more important lubricants and compounds. Chapters on "Product Shelf Life and Retest Frequencies" and "Product Limitations and Criteria for Low Temperature Applications" have been included to assure a proper quality surveillance and to assess a satisfactory operation under low temperature applications. Appendices contain viscosity and performance measurement and classification instructions and preparation procedures for solid film lubricant specifications.
