Abstract:

Tests of the value of mineral and non-mineral oils, silicone fluids and greases, and colloidal graphite as lubricants for clockwork fuze movements are described. The work has particular reference to the efficacy of the various lubricants under extremes of temperature. Some tests with no lubricant are recorded. It is concluded that silicone fluids and greases are at present the most suitable for aircraft bomb fuze requirements.
