HIGH THROUGHPUT TRIBOMETER
• Single function
• Simple to Operate
• Control via PLC
• Data exported on USB stick
This instrument is derived from and is a simplified version of the TE 79 Multi-Axis Tribology Machine.
The unit incorporates three conventional pin on disc test assemblies, generally in comliance with ASTM G99.
A rotating fluid bath is a simple solution for lubricated testing, as it avoids the requirement for rotating seals, however, it does not facilitate contact heating of the disc sample. Non-contact heating of the underside of the rotating bath is thus implemented using quartz halogen heating rings.
Loading is by dead-weight and a force transducer is fitted to each test station, so that friction for each contact is measured independently.
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.
