This standard describes a method for the determination of the dropping point of lubricating grease by means of automatic dropping point apparatus.

NOTE - The method is useful in assisting to identify the grease type and for establishing and maintaining standards for quality control. The results should be considered to have limited significance with respect to service performance as dropping point is a static test.
