Standard Test Method for Evaluation of Moisture Corrosion Resistance of Automotive Gear Lubricants
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
|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.2 This test method is commonly referred to as the L-33-1 test.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
Exceptions-(1) where there is no direct SI equivalent such as screw threads and national pipe threads/diameters, and (2) the values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard for the definitions in 12.2, and for SI units where there are no direct inch-pounds equivalent units.
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.
2 Until the next revision of this test method, the ASTM Test Monitoring Center (TMC) will update changes in this test method by means of Information Letters. This edition includes all Information Letters through 14-01. Information Letters may be obtained from the ASTM TMC, 6555 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15206- 4489, Attention: Administrator. The TMC is also the source of reference oils.
