5.1 This test simulates a type of severe field service in which corrosion-promoting moisture in the form of condensed water vapor accumulates in the axle assembly. This may happen as a result of volume expansion and contraction of the axle lubricant and the accompanied breathing in of moisture-laden air through the axle vent. The test screens lubricants for their ability to prevent the expected corrosion.
5.2 The L-33-1 test procedure is used or referred to in the following documents: ASTM Publication STP-512A, SAE J308, SAE J2360, and U.S. Military Specification MIL-PRF-2105E.
1.1 Thistest method covers a test procedure for evaluating the rust andcorrosion inhibiting properties of a gear lubricant while subjectedto water contamination and elevated temperature in a bench-mountedhypoid differential housing assembly.2This test method is commonly referred to as the L-33-1 test.
1.2 Thevalues stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard.The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SIunits that are provided for information only and are not consideredstandard.
1.2.1Exceptions—(1) where there isno direct SI equivalent such as screw threads and national pipethreads/diameters, and (2) the values stated in SI units are to beregarded as standard for the definitions in 12.2, and for SI units where there are nodirect inch-pounds equivalent units.
