Development of Grease Tackiness Test

Abstract: A test to evaluate the tackiness of grease has been developed using a standard tribometer. There is currently no standard test of tackiness. A preliminary study determined the test parameters to use in the subsequent experiments. Twelve different greases were tested and the results showed how the developed test method was able to differentiate between different greases. The results were linked to the application of grease to a rail using a scaled-wheel rig developed at The University of Sheffield. The develope… Show more

“…This method can perform multiple measurements of adhesion and tackiness under varying conditions automatically so that the speed, load and temperature can be recorded with one run. Based on the authors' previous experience [6][7][8][9][10][11][12], an optimised test profile is proposed, as presented in Table 1. In this profile, the speed and temperature vary, whereas the load remains constant.…”

“…For this reason, there is a strong need to develop a consistent, repeatable method that can quantify tackiness. During the last 10 years, more sophisticated experimental methods with different testers have been developed [5][6][7][8][9][10]. In all cases, the theoretical principle is based on measuring the interaction forces between a probe and a grease layer.…”

“…There has been some work recently done that has developed test methodologies in the laboratory to measure these variables for curve lubricants. A recent paper has developed a tackiness test for grease [16]. This involves an approach-retraction method which squeezes grease between two specimens and measures the force required to separate the specimens.…”

“…A test method originally developed for curve lubricants [16] was used to evaluate the tackiness of four variations of the same TORFM. No adaptation of the test method was needed.…”
