This document specifies:
— basic principles, testing assembly and the test machine for noise testing of rolling bearing greases;
— symbols used in the test methods BQ+, MQ and NQ.
This document is applicable for testing rolling bearing greases, especially of unused grease.
NOTE Suitable greases are greases of NLGI classes 1 to 3 according to DIN 51818. Suitable greases for lubrication of rolling bearings are especially greases according to ISO 12924. The test method according to this document delivers meaningful results for rolling bearings; however, it can also be applied for greases in similar applications.
