Work Item
ASTM WK80546

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

Rationale

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.
