Water Spray Apparatus
Complete Water Spray Apparatus meeting ASTM specifications, including spray
chamber, delivery system and constant temperature reservoir. Sprays water at
the specified rate and temperature on a test panel coated with sample grease.
To test for water spray resistance, fill reservoir with 8L of tap water and
set thermostat at test temperature. Circulate the water through the system to
attain temperature equilibrium and insert the coated test panel in the spray
chamber. Adjust water spray to 40psi (276kPa) and continue for 5 minutes.
Water spray system includes 1/3hp positive displacement pump; spray nozzle
with snubber fitting: 0-60psi pressure gauge; bypass valve; shut-off and
drain valves; and flexible high pressure water lines. Hinged acrylic spray chamber
cover is recessed into the chamber housing to insure watertight operation.
Two thermometer wells permit separate monitoring of reservoir and water spray
temperatures. Standardized grease application fixture coats test panel with
the required thickness of sample grease. Uses tap water; does not require
