Uni-Directional and Reciprocating Friction and Wear Test

Operator: Always included

Used to evaluate the friction or wear characteristics of materials and lubricants.


Thanks to a very stable contact of a block on a rotating/oscillating ring specific conditions like journal bearings, piston rings,... can be simulated. These simulations are evaluated on their friction and wear characteristics. This device has an enclosed chamber for heating control and creating a gas-saturated environment. Lubricants can also be recirculated and passed through additional sensors. Standardized tests include: ASTM D2714 - D2981 – D3704 - G77. Prices can vary upon preparation & customization of the test. This company is specialized in friction and wear testing.
