ASTM D2983 - Low-Temperature Viscosity of Lubricants Measured by Brookfield Viscometer

We perform testing by ASTM D2983 to find the low temperature viscosity of transmission fluids, tractor fluids, hydraulic oils, and other lubricants. This is also called Brookfield Viscosity because of the type of viscometer used. The low-temperature, low-shear-rate viscosity of automatic transmission fluids, gear oils, torque and tractor fluids, and industrial and automotive hydraulic oils is very important to the proper operation of many mechanical devices. Measuring the viscometric properties of these fluids is often part of accepting these fluids for service.

We also perform viscosity testing by ASTM D1092ASTM D2161ASTM D2270ASTM D2422ASTM D2532ASTM D341ASTM D445IP 226IP 71ISO 2909, and ISO 3104. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types.
