Significance and Use
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the corrosion-preventive properties of greases using grease-lubricated 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.
1.2 Apparatus Dimensions—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.
