    Significance and Use

    5.1 This test method differentiates the relative corrosion-preventive capabilities of lubricating greases under the test conditions.

    1. Scope

    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.

    1.3 All Other Values—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
