New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Determining the Scuffing Temperature Limit of Lubricating Oils Using the SRV Test Machine

1. Scope

This test method covers the determination of a scuffing temperature limit of lubricating oils at prescribed condi-tions and the retention of friction over temperature load step increases in a roller-on-disk (flat) geometry when subjected to high-frequency, linear oscillation motion. This test method is executed under constant load, frequency and stroke in a SRV test machine. The evolution of coefficient of friction of lubricating oils as function of temperature is recorded and assessed.

Scuffing or adhesive wear was generated by different tribometric test methods by load steps. By using temperature step increases represent a new technical approach.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
