Understanding vapor and solution phase corrosion of lubricants used in electrified transmissions 2020-01-0561

In this study, the corrosion rates of commercially available lubricants that are found in electrified and conventional transmissions are measured in the vapor and solution phase across a range of operating temperatures using the wire corrosion test. The results of this study demonstrate the importance of performing vapor and solution phase corrosion measurements in real time across a range of temperatures and offers an efficient and cost-effective way to screen fluid chemistries over a range of potential corrosion situations. Corrosion measurements such as these, when interpreted correctly provide reliable data on which to base appropriate safety margins during the design phase.
