These test methods cover two procedures for measuring the consistency of small samples of lubricating greases by penetration of a ¼-scale cone or a ½-scale cone. These test methods include procedures for the measurement of unworked and worked penetrations.
Unworked penetrations do not generally represent the consistency of greases in use as effectively as do worked penetrations. The latter are usually preferred for inspecting lubricating greases.
The values in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. In the United States, the equipment dimensions stated in inches are to be regarded as the standard.
