High Pressure Tribometer

With the introduction of the high pressure tribometer, users can now characterize lubricants and solid materials in a high pressure environment. By the computerized pressure control, materials can be tested in specific gas conditions, with temperature and force control features.

Inline sensors for measurement of friction and wear provides real-time insight how your materials will behave under pressure conditions.

The large chamber allows easy fixation of your samples for numerous high pressure applications such as bearings, seals, valves, compressors and liners.
