HIGH THROUGHPUT TRIBOMETER
• Single function
• Simple to Operate
• Control via PLC
• Data exported on USB stick
This instrument is a development of the TE 94 Three Station Rotary Tribometer.
This machine is designed to run multiple tests in the thrust washer and three pin on disc test configurations, under identical test conditions. Sensors are provided for measurement of friction and sample temperature on each test station.
Load is applied to each test station by means of pneumatic cylinders, connected in parallel. Pressure to the cylinders is manually controlled by means of a precision pressure regulator. Tests may be run in accordance with the guidelines laid out in ASTM G99 and ASTM D3702.
The machine is designed to be bench-mounted, with installation footprint kept to a minimum. It is simple to operate, so requires minimal training. Control is implemented with a PLC, with inputs via touch-screen. Data is stored by the device and exported on USB stick.
