This webinar will discuss the various ASTM tests which evaluate lubricant performance. These tests are utilized as predictors of actual field performance of lubricants. They are utilized by the following groups:
• Lubricant suppliers who publish data sheets to give an indication of field performance
• OEM’s who utilize these tests to set minimum performance standards in the lubrication of their equipment
• Additive suppliers who use these tests in the development of additive performance for finished lubricants
It is important to understand these test methods and their correlation to field performance when making lubricant decisions. All the major tests will be discussed with major emphasis on testing procedures, results interpretation, and relevance to field performance.
Turbine, hydraulic, and gear oil tests will be examined utilizing sample data sheets from some of the major suppliers. Also, OEM requirements for these various product groups will be presented.
After this webinar you will feel more confident in understanding the various performance tests so you can make meaningful comparisons between lubricant suppliers’ products.
