Standard Test Method for Corrosion-Preventive Properties of Lubricating Greases in Presence of Dilute Synthetic Sea Water Environments
Includes all amendments and changes through Editorial Change 1, January 2013
Published By:ASTM International (ASTM)
This test method covers the determination of the corrosion-preventive properties of greases using greaselubricated tapered roller bearings exposed to various concentrations of dilute synthetic sea water stored under wet conditions. It is based on Test Method D1743, which is practiced using a similar procedure and distilled water. The reported result is a pass or fail rating as determined by at least two of three bearings.
