Revision of D2265-19 Standard Test Method for Dropping Point of Lubricating Grease Over Wide Temperature Range


None Provided


The Thin Wall Test Tube (section B, Figure 1) has Inner Diameter (ID) dimension and tolerance of 11 + 1.5, -0. Minimum dimension of 11 mm. Bushings E-2 and E-3 have Outer Diameter (OD) dimension of 10.72 mm to 11.10 mm. Therefore, a Test tube with an ID at the minimum dimension will not be compatible with a Bushing at the maximum dimension. Proposal to revise maximum OD dimension of Bushings to 10.85 mm. This will guarantee compatibility between the two parts and leave a 0.15 mm clearance even with the worst case scenario.
