Air Jet Erosion Tester Overview

Main Features:

  • Conforms to ASTM G76, ASTM G211-14
  • Automatic in-line sample and particle velocity measurement
  • Open platform allows mounting real samples and test coupons
  • Fully automatic – run and test data with a click of a button

Perform repeated impact tests with Rtec Instruments’ Air Jet Erosion Tester, the AJ-1000. To do this, the tester utilizes a jet of gas loaded with abrasive particles. As a result, the AJ-1000 can measure samples’ precise erosion. Additionally, the machine comes with temperature control up to 1200°C and closed-loop temperature. Furthermore, the AJ-1000 ranks the erosion of various materials and coatings. It does this by subjecting samples to different abrasive particles of various shapes, sizes, temperatures, and impact speeds.

    AJ-1000 Features

    Automated Positioning Stage

    An automatic stage moves the sample for ease of use. Meanwhile, the velocity measurement system provides precise measurements.

    Uniform Temperature

    The AJ-1000 can go up to 1200 °C temperature (multiple ranges available). As a result, study the effect of temperature with in-line temperature monitoring and PID closed loop control.

    Closed loop High Speed Double Disc Velocity Measurement

    The time-of-flight of the particles is determined over a controlled path length between two rotating disks.  Servo controlled rpm, high speed double disc velocity for precise process control in real time.

    Mixing and Impingement Angle

    Software parameters control the mixing of hot air and erodent particles. In addition, the angles of impingement change to various positions – from 0 to  90 degrees.

    Erodent Particle Feed System

    Stainless steel hoppers and vibrator with programmed motorized screw conveyor. 

    Erodent feed rate– 1 -10 gm/min (higher range available)
    Particle hopper capacity– up to 3 liter (multiple ranges)
    Particle speed– 30-200 m/sec (multiple ranges available)

    A Look Inside the AJ-1000

    Each AJ-1000 includes an air pressure controller and a pressure gauge. Standard or user selected abrasive media are capable of evaluation.
