Revision of D1743-22 Standard Test Method for Determining Corrosion Preventive Properties of Lubricating Greases


Section 8.1 of D1743 was updated in the first half of 2022 under WK80456 to allow the use of bearing spinners manufacturer's instruction to set the required 3mm thrust load compression depth, in the event the manufacturer's instruction were different than the standard instruction found in section 8.1. This passed both subcommittee and D02 main ballot, but received an affirmative with comment that the word 'should' was used, but should have been 'shall' as the manufacturers instructions must be followed to carry out the test as intended. This is being balloted to change this 'should' to 'shall'.
