The results obtained by this test method are useful as guides in determining the tendency of a water-based metalworking coolant to produce foam under low shear conditions. No correlation with changes in heat transfer, pumpability, or other factors affected by foam is intended. The foam generated by any given industrial process depends on the method by which the foam is generated and may not be directly proportional to that produced by this controlled laboratory test method. Further, the foam generated at the specified test temperature will not necessarily predict the foaming tendency of the liquid (that is, metalworking coolant) at some other use temperature.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the increase in volume of a low-viscosity aqueous liquid (less than 3 cSt at 40°C) due to its tendency to foam under low shear conditions. Note 1 - Foam under high shear is covered by Test Method D 3519 which uses a commercial blender.
