Why study high temperature tribology? 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.
