Liquid Module

Liquid modules are used to carry out wear and friction
experiments in liquids or lubricants. Different liquid solutions can
simulate the wear process for realistic applications for various
industrial applications.Temperature plays a critical role on the extent of wear damage to materials. The Tribometer conducts wear experiments at high temperatures up to 1100°C for the rotative test and up to 800°C for the linear test.

How does it work?

For example, the biomaterials for biological replacements such as
joints, stents, and dental roots, require excellent long-term
resistance and adequate strength in a liquid environment.

The parts in the motor engines should be protected by proper
lubrication to reduce wear and friction and to extend lifespan.
Combining with the precise control of speed and continuous
change of speed, a continual Stribeck Curve for the test lubricant
can be measured.

A liquid heating coil is available to heat the liquid in the cups up to 150°C. An accessory to the cup is the drop by drop lubrication option which allows lubrication test even at 5000rpm.
