Review of ASTM D 2882 and Current Possibilities


In April of 1995, various laboratories in the United States and U.K. were contacted regarding, problems encountered, solutions and their current practice using the ASTM test method D 2882 (Standard Test Method for Indicating the Wear Characteristics of Petroleum and Non-Petroleum Hydraulic Fluids in a Constant Volume Vane Pump). Participants were sent the collected comments and techniques which had been shared by ASTM D-2 submittee N07 members over the last fifteen years. Participants were asked to review the document and add their own comments. The purpose was to collect and compare all available information about the test in an effort to resolve the operational problems associated with this test method. The objective of this paper is to present the results of this survey and to describe the engineering research performed by Conestoga to identify and remedy the operational problems associated with this method.
