ASTM WK43806

    Revision of D2162 - 13 Standard Practice for Basic Calibration of Master Viscometers and Viscosity Oil Standards

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D2162 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.07 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    This work item is to change two dimensions in Figures 1 and 2 to be minimum values. These changes are to the overall length and the segment above the upper most etched line. These changes are to avoid a situation where the tolerances on the other segments of the viscometer combine to exceed the overall length. This change will have no effect on the performance of the viscometers.
