The Block On Ring Testers are tribology and mechanical testers for research, development, and industry.
Ultra high data acquisition
Servo Control, real-time down force control and loading system with safety interlock
Auto Start, Auto Stop
Auto start and auto stop criteria based on force, friction, temperature, and torque.
Programmable temperature control up to 500 °C. Many thermocouples to measure both chamber and grease/oil temperature.
Perform many ASTM, ISO, DIN tests EP, Wear and Friction on the same tester up to 12000 N (more ranges available).
Friction and Wear Characteristics of Materials, Coatings, and Lubricants. EP Properties.
The Block On Ring module is normally used to assess friction wear of coatings, materials, and lubricant where a ring/bearing/shaft is rotated under load. ASTM G77, D2714, D2509, D2981, D2782, D3704, and more.
Load: Servo Control, real-time down force close loop loading system with safety interlock. Control loading rates and various loading modes—constant, linear, step, custom load profile with Rtec-Instruments’ user-friendly recipes.
Temperature: Programmable temperature control up to 500 °C. Program the setpoints, ramp rate, and more with Rtec-Instruments’ user-friendly recipes. Many thermocouples to measure both chamber and grease/oil temperature.
Speed and Motions: Program preferred RPM up to 5000 standard. Different modes like clockwise, counterclockwise and cycle or oscillation can be chosen in the recipe.
Auto start and Auto stop criteria based on temperature, friction, force, and torque.
Different size liquid containers for oil, grease and metalworking liquids.
