ASTM International - ASTM D2715-92(2007)
Standard Test Method for Volatilization Rates of Lubricants in Vacuum
|Publication Date:||1 May 2007|
|ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products):||75.100|
significance And Use:
This test method provides data for comparison of the evaporation rate of lubricants used in unshielded bearings in the space environment.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the rates of volatilization of lubricants in a thermal-vacuum environment at pressures and temperatures necessary to obtain a measurable rate of evaporation, or evidence of decomposition.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
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.
