IP-121 – Determination of Oil Separation on Storage of GreasePressure Filtration Method

During storage, oil may separate from lubricating grease, potentially lessening the effectiveness of the grease.  The separation may be greater in greases stored in drums due to the pressure exerted on the lower levels of grease from the upper levels. This test predicts oil separation under storage conditions.  It is not intended for in-service greases.

Using a custom apparatus, the sample grease is weighed into a wire mesh cone. This is placed into a cup to catch oil that separates.   A metal weight is placed on the grease and the apparatus is heated for the test time (42 hours or 168 hours) at the test temperature (40°C).  The percent of oil that separates from the grease is reported.
