Detailed Module Information

Module Features

  • Room to max 1200°C temperature range
  • Construction from high temperature alloys
  • Several interchangeable modules on the same platform.
  • Negligible thermal drifts
  • Safe operation with closed wall chambers.

Why Study? Characterizing tribological, friction and wear properties of material at high temperatures is critical in applications, such as engines, turbines, aerospace, power plant constituent parts, hot rolling, ceramics, combustion engine, and metallic alloys where materials are subjected to high temperatures.

Rtec high temperature tribometer modules to study material and coating friction, wear, hardness up to 1200°C. The test can run under a wide range of motion, load, and speed.
