This European Standard specifies a test method and sets the acceptance criteria for the determination of the mechanical stability of lubricating greases intended for the lubrication of axlebox bearings according to EN 12081. In the test, impacts are applied to the lubricating grease so that only very stable lubricating greases will perform acceptably. The method is used in a discrimination process for finding lubricating greases of such mechanical stability that they are considered accepted lubricating greases for more extensive performance tests according to EN 12082.
For purposes of quality assurance and quality control, this test method is also used for batch testing of lubricating greases.
