Why Study Low Temperature Tribology? With advent of space research, quantum computing, power plants, polymers, and EV vehicles, low temperature friction and wear analysis is on the rise. Coatings, materials, and component tribology and surface analysis is becoming more and more important.
Rtec low temperature tribology friction and wear tester modules perfect for studying materials and coatings up to -120°C. The tribometer runs tests under a wide range of motion, load, and speed. Real-time force, friction, acoustic emission, temperature, and many more are recorded at all times.
Test Range Summary
- Motions – Rotary, reciprocating, linear, block on ring
- Loads – mN to 10,000N
- Speeds – 0.001 to 10,000 RPM or 300 Hz
