K94600 V2F Grease Testing Machine

Features and Benefits
• Evaluates the mechanical stability of grease under strong forces

K94600 V2F Grease Tester
The V2F Grease Testing Machine evaluates the mechanical stability of grease in a more stringent fashion than the penetration or roll stability tests. The machine was developed after extensive measurements on railway axleboxes and constructed such that the vibrations simulate the actual accelerative forces typical for passing over rail track joints. To conduct the test, grease is applied to the two test bearings which are mounted into the axlebox. During the first testing period of 72 hours, the bearings are run at 500rpm and the 50kg hammer strikes the axlebox with a force of 12 to 15 G every second. The test rig is calibrated using a normal accelerometer technology, and the temperature of the bearings is monitored during the test. If limited leakage is observed, then a second test is run at 1000 rpm. The amount of grease leakage through the labyrinth seal is measured and evaluated at the end of the test.
