Horizontal Tensile Testers
as and when their test requirements change. The unique horizontal extensometer that is typically supplied incorporates pneumatic controls that automatically lowers the arms prior to the test and raises the arms at the end of the test. Friction free air bearings on the extensometer provide accurate strain measurement through fracture. The combination of the machine and accessory design provides simple yet sophisticated operation, accurate and repeatable specimen placement against mechanical stops... (read more)

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)

Friction Testers and Wear Testers
Friction testers determine the coefficient of friction or the friction force. Additionally, they measure the resisting force tangential to the interface between two bodies when under the action of an external force, one body moves or tend to move relative to the other. Wear testers evaluate

Quality Control of Minidisk Polymer Topcoat Using Nano Scratch Tester and Tribometer
picture of how the coating will perform in service conditions. Fig. 1 shows typical Tribometer traces for two polycarbonate thin films where a rapid rise in friction can be taken as a measure of coating breakdown under load. Nano Scratch data is presented in Fig. 2 where two distinct critical failure
Lubrication of Gears (.pdf)
The purpose of lubricating gears is as follows: 1. Promote sliding between teeth to reduce the. coefficient of friction (m). 2. Limit the temperature rise caused by rolling. and sliding friction. To avoid difficulties such as tooth wear and premature failure, the correct lubricant must be chosen
Pharmaceutical Powders Small Sample Sizes Yield Big Results

The same results given by the larger 263cc shear cell (flow function, bulk density, arching dimension, internal friction angle, rat-hole diameter) are given with the small volume shear cell. The small volume shear cell does have an additional advantage over the larger 263cc shear cell
