Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 May 2011
Status: active
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products): 75.100
scope:

This practice covers the method to obtain a trendable in-service lubricating grease sample from the following configurations including motor-operated valves, gearboxes, pillow-block bearings, electric motors, exposed bearings, open gears, or failed grease-lubricated components.

In some cases, it may be necessary to take more than one sample from a piece of equipment to obtain more trendable results. Examples of this could be a large bearing that does not fully rotate, such as a slew bearing, or one in which sufficient mixing does not otherwise occur.

Samples taken in the above manner may need to be mixed to form a more homogeneous sample. This may also be true of other samples such as those taken from open face bearings.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. The exception to this is a standard English units thread for which there is no metric equivalent.

NOTE 1-The standard pipe thread referred to is the national pipe thread tapered thread.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
