ASTM D3704 - Wear Preventive Properties of Lubricating Greases Using the (Falex) Block on Ring Test Machine in Oscillating Motion


We perform grease testing by ASTM D3704 to determine the wear properties of lubricating greases using the Falex block-on-ring friction and wear test machine. The tester has a steel ring oscillating against a steel block; test speed, load, angle of oscillation, time, and specimen surface finish and hardness can vary to simulate field conditions. The wear scar, developed on the block from contact with the oscillating ring, is measured.  

We also perform wear testing by ASTM D2882ASTM D4170FTM 335, and MIL-G-81827 §4.7.3. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types. Click on the test method number to learn more about each test.
