Development Of A Laboratory Gear Oil Spalling Test 841347

This paper describes development of a full-scale laboratory truck axle test used to predict the field performance of gear lubricants in heavy truck use. The relationship between laboratory results and known field performance will be described, as will a unique way of analyzing laboratory results. Data will also be presented which will show the laboratory test to be both repeatable and reproducible. Finally, data will be presented which shows lubricant additive type to play a vital role in defining field performance.
