Block on ring tester helps to determine coefficient of friction, wear, friction, rate of wear, volume wear and EP, wear resistance of lubricant, greases, bearings, rings, shaft etc . The test can run under wide range of load, sliding speed, rotational speed and temperature.
● Rigid design to support high load tests
● Dry and Lubricated tests
● Continuous or cyclic tests
● Test bearings, shaft, seals, oil, grease, rings
● Inline Torque measurement
The state of the art Rtec Multi Function tribometer Mft-5000 is globally regarded as the most versatile and technologically advanced tribometer. The patented integrated 3D profilometer allows to analyse surface change vs time makes it usable for many application across various industries. In addition it comes with patented force sensors (piezo, capacitive & strain gauge) with ultra low resolution, highest speeds, stable torque and widest load range than any other commercially available tribometer.
MFT-5000 verstatily allows to mount several test/application specific modules on same platform. Please visit following links to learn more - Lubricant Summary page, Product page, Main Applications
EP Test -This method covers the determination of the extreme pressure properties of lubricating oil or greases in sliding applications. The test condition typically involves increasing load increased in step or linear mode until there is seizure or sudden increase of coefficient of friction during the test occurs. This method is commonly used in Timken ok test for grease and lubricants (ASTM D2509 and ASTM D2782). The wear on the sample is evaluated to determine pass/fail criteria for the lubricant at the load being tested.
