|Significance and Use|
5.1ï¿½The low-temperature, low-shear-rate viscosity of automatic transmission fluids, gear oils, torque and tractor fluids, power steering fluids, and hydraulic oils are of considerable importance to the proper operation of many mechanical devices. Low-temperature viscosity limits of these fluids are often specified to ensure their suitability for use and are cited in many specifications.
5.2ï¿½The manual test method, Test Method , was developed to determine whether an automatic transmission fluid (ATF) would meet low-temperature performance criterion originally defined using a particular model viscometer. The viscosity range covered in the original ATF performance correlation studies was from less than 1000â€‰mPaï¿½s to more than 60â€‰000â€‰mPaï¿½s. The success of the ATF correlation and the development of this test method has over time been applied to other fluids and lubricants such as gear oils, hydraulic fluids, and so forth.
5.3ï¿½The viscosity determined by this test method using option A was found to be statistically indistinguishable from Test Method â€‰â€“â€‰16 measurements based on the ILS data to establish this test methodâ€™s precision.
5.4ï¿½Due to the shorter time at test temperature, results from the abbreviated thermal conditioning (Option B) may differ from results obtained with the 14â€‰h soak at test temperature (Option A). For the samples used in developing this test method, results obtained with the abbreviated procedure (Option B) tended to be less than 14â€‰h soak (Option A). This difference seemed to be larger for products that contained high wax base stock.
1.1ï¿½This test method automates the determination of low temperature, low-shear-rate viscosity of driveline and hydraulic fluids, such as automatic transmission fluids, gear oils, hydraulic fluids, and other lubricants. It utilizes a thermoelectrically temperature-controlled sample chamber along with a programmable rotational viscometer. This test method covers a viscosity range of 300â€‰mPaï¿½s to 900â€‰000â€‰mPaï¿½s measured at temperatures from â€“40â€‰ï¿½C to â€“10â€‰ï¿½C.
1.2ï¿½The precision data were determined at â€“40â€‰ï¿½C and â€“26â€‰ï¿½C for a viscosity range of 6380â€‰mPaï¿½s to 255â€‰840â€‰mPaï¿½s.
1.3ï¿½The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard except those noted below.
1.3.1ï¿½Exceptionâ€”The test method uses the SI unit, milliPascal-second (mPaï¿½s), as the unit of viscosity. (1â€‰cP = 1â€‰mPaï¿½s).
1.4ï¿½This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.5ï¿½This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
