Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 June 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 66
ICS Code (Road vehicle systems in general): 43.040.01
scope:

Undesirable timing-chain wear has been observed with gasoline, turbocharged, direct-injection (GTDI) engines in field service, and data from correlating laboratory engine tests have shown that chain wear can be affected by appropriately formulated engine lubricating. A laboratory engine test has been developed to provide a means for screening lubricating oils for that specific purpose. The laboratory engine test is 216 h in length, conducted under varying conditions, and the increase in timing-chain length determined at the end of test is the primary result. This test method is commonly known as the Sequence X, Chain Wear (CW) Test.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

Exception-

Where there is no direct SI equivalent such as screw threads, national pipe threads/diameters, tubing size, or specified single source equipment.

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.
