Standard Test Method for Oxidation and Thermal Stability Characteristics of Gear Oils Using Universal Glassware
|Publication Date:||15 August 1995|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This test method covers the determination of the oxidation characteristics of extreme pressure and non-extreme pressure gear oils and includes the quantitative determination of total sludge, viscosity change, and oil loss.
NOTE 1-While the round-robin tests used ISO VG 220 extreme pressure gear oils for developing precision data, the test method can be extended to other viscosity grades and to non-extreme pressure gear oils. Refer to Classification D 2422 for viscosity grades.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
