ASTM WK80546

Revision of D1743-21 Standard Test Method for Determining Corrosion Preventive Properties of Lubricating Greases


The method has diagrams and instructions for setting the thrust load on the bearing spinner that are specific to a bearing spinner manufactured by a specific supplier, but it was brought to the subcommittee’s attention that other equipment exists that can otherwise meet the method criteria. A statement that other equipment exists and in that case the manufacturer’s instructions for setting the thrust load on the spinner should be followed.
