IP 310 - Quarter & Half Cone Penetration of Grease

We perform grease testing by IP 130 to measure the consistency of lubricating grease, using a smaller apparatus when the sample is too small to use IP 50 - Cone Penetration. This test uses a ¼-scale cone or a 1/2-scale cone to measure the penetration of worked and unworked grease samples. The reduced-scale penetration values are converted to full-scale penetration values. These results can be used to establish the NLGI consistency of the grease or to evaluate the effect of storage conditions on grease consistency.

IP 310 corresponds to ASTM D1403.
