Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 May 2010
Status: inactive
Page Count: 6
ICS Code (Lubricants, industrial oils and related products): 75.100
significance And Use:

5.1 This test method, used for specification purposes, differentiates between lubricating greases having low, medium, and high level of extreme-pressure properties. The results do not necessarily... View More

scope:

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the load-carrying properties of lubricating greases. Two determinations are made:

1.1.1 Load-Wear Index (formerly called Mean-Hertz Load), and

1.1.2 Weld Point, by means of the Four-Ball Extreme-Pressure (EP) Tester.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

1.3 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.
