Product Description
Evaluates the tendency of automotive wheel bearing grease to separate oil and/or grease under prescribed laboratory conditions. The test is performed at elevated temperature in a modified automotive spindle-hub assembly rotated at 660rpm. Any leakage of oil or grease during the test period is collected and weighed.

Features and Benefits:
~ Conforms to ASTM D1263 and FTM 791-3454 specifications
~ Microprocessor programmable high accuracy temperature control
~ Maximum Temperature: 250°F (121°C)

Consists of a modified front wheel hub and spindle assembly with drive motor and constant temperature air cabinet. Rotates hub at 660rpm while maintaining spindle temperature at a constant 220°F (104°C) or other specified temperature. Oil that has separated from the sample grease during the test period is collected in the hub cap and in a leakage collector that installs on the spindle. The hub is rotated by a durable 1/3hp motor through a V-belt drive. Microprocessor PID control provides quick temperature stabilization without overshoot, and the unit is protected by an overtemperature control circuit that interrupts power should bath temperature exceed a programmed cut-off point. Dual LED displays provide actual and setpoint temperature values in °C/°F format. Communications software (RS232, etc.), ramp-to-set and other enhanced features are available as extra cost options. Cabinet is insulated on all sides and has a hinged cover for easy access to the hub-spindle assembly. Thermometer ports in the spindle and the cabinet allow for precise setting and monitoring of test temperature. Housed in a heavy-gauge steel exterior with polyurethane enamel finish.
