Sliding Friction Testing Made Easy!
One material is affixed to the base plate of the test fixture while the other material is wrapped around a weight which is then pulled across the first material at constant speed. The test apparatus utilizes the Brookfield CT3 Tester to pull the weight in a horizontal direction so that the sliding friction between the two materials is measured accurately over a distance that is sufficient to verify steady state behavior. The TA-SFJ Sliding Friction Jig is used to measure tactile qualities like... (read more)

Can You Predict Powder Flow Behavior By Measuring Density
whether the powder will flow in gravity discharge from a storage vessel. Once a powder is compacted, the question is how much friction or resistance must be overcome for the powder particles to slide or flow against each other. The density test can only tell us how much compaction has taken place
