Description / Abstract:

Table 1 lists the components of construction and industrial equipment and the various lubricants which may be used. Table 2 lists lubricant types and identifying abbreviations. Lubricants that had common usage in the past are retained in Table 2 to show where the new specifications originated.

Original factory lubrication may deviate from field recommendations because of special requirements, such as breakin.

Lubricant viscosity grade should be selected for various climatic conditions (described in SAE J300 and SAE J307).

The final selection of the lubricant and grade will depend upon the requirements of the equipment manufacturer.

Purpose—This SAE Information Report is an introduction to lubricant classifications, specifications, and types in common use today. It emphasizes the desirability of using a minimum number of lubricants. Pertinent SAE reports are called out for easy reference. Lubricant abbreviations have been included that will assist in preparation of lubrication charts (described in SAE J753).

Rationale—SAE J754 was last revised in January of 1972. It contains requirements that cut across several technologies, including engine oil, transmission fluid, hydraulic fluid, brake fluid, and others. An informal survey of end users and oil marketers resulted in no interest in this document or in the technology that it describes. There has also been little or no buying activity as evidenced by SAE document records. In addition to TC-3 membership, TC-1 has also been polled for their opinion. They concur that the document no longer serves a useful purpose and efforts to update it would not be productive.
