Abstract:

A rotating cylinder deposition test for the evaluation of aircraft turbine engine lubricants was investigated. The device was selected for study on the basis of its promise for achieving controlled or measurable lubricant films and oxidative exposure conditions. Evaluation tests with this configuration were performed with four coded lubricants. Performance criteria in these tests included deposit rating, viscosity and neutralization number change, and oxygen consumption. Test conditions selected for this series of runs resultes in severe fluid deterioration for all but one lubricant.
