Standard Test Method for Rotational Viscosity of Heavy Duty Diesel Drain Oils at 100°C
|Publication Date:||10 May 2003|
|ICS Code (Petroleum products in general):||75.080|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the rotational viscosity and the shear thinning properties of heavy duty diesel engine drain oils at 100°C, in the shear rate range of approximately 10 to 300 s-1, in the shear stress range of approximately 0.1 to 10 Pa and the viscosity range of approximately 12 to 35 mPas. Rotational viscosity values can be compared at a shear rate of 100 s-1 by this test method.
1.2 This 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
