High Temperature Tribometer for Friction and Wear Analysis

The testing of the wear and friction properties of materials at high temperatures is essential, especially for the development and quality control of power plant constituent parts and combustion engines.

Anton Paar has extended its pin-on-disk tribometer series to include a powerful high-temperature version, in order to meet the required need for quantitative data at high thermal conditions. These tribometers can precisely simulate in-service conditions.

Key Features

The main features of the high temperature tribometer are as follows:

  • Differential friction sensors for superior stability covering temperatures up to 1000°C
  • Room temperature measurement
  • Efficient heating/cooling system to precisely maintain preferred temperature
  • Angular sensor for reciprocating multi-cycles
  • Automatic shut off at pre-defined track length or friction coefficient threshold
  • Testing conforms to ASTM G99, DIN 50324, and ASTM G133
  • Continuous wear depth measurement (Optional)
  • Electrical contact resistance (Optional)
  • Vacuum setup (Optional)


The main applications of the high temperature tribometer are listed below:

  • Electronics
  • Chemical sector
  • Education research
  • Materials science and nanotechnology
  • Minerals, mining, and raw materials
