|Brief description:||The FZG Micropitting Short Test provides a quantitative assessment of lubricant influence (especially additives), lubrication temperature and other parameters on the occurrence of micropitting.|
The FZG Micropitting Short Test is suitable for distinguishing between lubricants with regard to their micropitting load capacity and thus allows the selection of a lubricant with sufficient load capacity. The effect of additives on micropitting load carrying capacity depends on the lubricant temperature. Typically, the test is performed at a temperature of 90 °C.
