High Pressure Tribometer

200 PSI High Pressure Tribometer with temperature control. Test lubricants and materials with various gases under high pressure.
Home > Tribometers > High Pressure Tribometer


Main Features:

  • Up to 200 PSI pressure
  • Real-time down force control
  • In-line friction and wear
  • Patented capacitive high pressure force sensor
  • -35 to 100°C Temperature Range
  • Load Range 5 N to 2000 N

Study friction and wear of various materials for valves, seals, liners, bearings, compressors and much more. Tester supports controlled test environments at high pressure. The tribological behavior of high pressure application products depends heavily on gas environment and pressure. Chemical reactions and dissolution rates play an important role in the processes at contacting surfaces.

Rtec Instruments high pressure tribometer runs ball on disk and pin on disk tribology test under high pressure. Rigid chamber construction, wide load range up to 2000 N  to simulate several high pressure tribology applications.
