Reducing friction and wear loss of materials by lubrication technologies 

4-Ball Wear Tester

Characterizing lubricants by their wear preventive (WP), extreme pressure (EP), friction and fatigue properties is essential in reducing friction and wear losses in machines. The key in efficiency of the frictional system is using a lubricant (grease, oil, solid lubricants). The Rtec Instruments 4 ball wear tester is used to characterize these properties of lubricants according to various industrial standards.
