Standard Test Method for High Temperature Foaming Characteristics of Lubricating Oils
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
This test method describes the procedure for determining the foaming characteristics of lubricating oils (specifically transmission fluid and motor oil) at 150°C.
Foaming characteristics of lubricating oils at temperatures up to 93.5°C are determined by Test Method D892 or IP 146.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
