ASTM D2670 - Measuring Wear Properties of Fluid Lubricants (Falex Pin and Vee Block Method)
Significance and Use
5.1 This test method may be used to determine wear obtained with fluid lubricants under the prescribed test conditions. The user of this test method should determine to his or her own satisfaction whether results of this test procedure correlate with field performance or other bench test machines. If the test conditions are changed, wear values may change and relative ratings of fluids may be different.
1.1 This test method covers a procedure for making a preliminary evaluation of the wear properties of fluid lubricants by means of the Falex Pin and Vee Block Lubricant Test Machine.
NOTE 1: Certain fluid lubricants may require different test parameters depending upon their performance characteristics.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.Extracted, with permission, from ASTM D2670-20 - Measuring Wear Properties of Fluid Lubricants (Falex Pin and Vee Block Method), copyright ASTM International, 100 Barr Harbor Drive, West Conshohocken, PA 19428.
