Standard Test Method for Measuring Wear Properties of Fluid Lubricants (Falex Pin and Vee Block Method)

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 either inch-pound units or SI (metric) units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents, there- fore each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values of the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
