PCS-MPR micropitting test method ARP60495

This method is currently under development in the E-34C Lubricating Characteristics subcommittee as a technique to predict the micropitting performance of 5 cSt turbine oils. The PCS Instruments Micro pitting rig (MPR) is currently used by the Industry to look at both macro and micro pitting resistance of lubricating oils on gears and bearings. Using the test methods and profile developed from testing performed by Powertrib, and then further discussions between PCS Instruments (the instrument manufacturer) and the E-34C committee, a set of proposed test conditions have been agreed. Once the specimens have been manufactured, a small round robin is planned to look at repeatability and reproducibility.
