|Publication Date:||1 May 2004|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
This test method covers a test procedure for evaluating the rust and corrosion inhibiting properties of a gear lubricant while subjected to water contamination and elevated temperature in a bench-mounted hypoid differential housing assembly.(Footnote 2) This test method is commonly referred to as the L-33-1 test.
The values for temperature stated as degrees Fahrenheit, for pressure stated as psi, and volume stated as fluid ounces are to be regarded as standard. The SI values given in the parentheses are provided for informational purposes only.
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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
