MTM

The MTM is a ball-on-disc instrument for measuring the frictional properties of lubricated and unlubricated contacts under a wide range of rolling and sliding conditions. It’s wide range of applications include improving fuel economy and engine efficiency, developing new formulations for railway greases, reducing the wear of artificial joints and the mouth feel of food […]

EHD

The EHD2 Ultra Thin Film Measurement System is the latest evolution of the successful EHD instrument. It is now a fully automated computer-controlled instrument for measuring the film thickness and traction coefficient (friction coefficient) of lubricants in the elastohydrodynamic lubricating regime. The instrument can measure lubricant film thickness down to 1 nm. The contact pressures […]

MPR

The Micro Pitting Rig (MPR) is a triple disc machine for researching rolling contact fatigue (RCF) failure mechanisms in the form of micro and macro pitting at realistic contact pressures under both lubricated and unlubricated conditions. It is used extensively by tribologists, to study a range of failure mechanisms observed in real world applications and […]

ETM

The ETM instrument is ball-on-disc instrument for measuring the frictional properties of lubricated and unlubricated contacts under extreme pressures and a wide range of rolling and sliding conditions. Using high precision components, the ETM allows testing up to 3.5 GPa with standard specimens in a compact, controlled environment. All three regimes (boundary, mixed and EHL) […]

ABS

The PCS Instruments Automated BOCLE System (ABS) is a microprocessor-controlled ball-on-cylinder wear test system for fast, repeatable assessments of the performance of jet fuels. The system is compact and requires minimal external services. The ABS can be configured to meet the following standard test methods. ASTM D5001 – Standard Test Method for Measurement of Lubricity […]

HFRR

The High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) is a microprocessor-controlled reciprocating friction and wear test system which provides a fast, repeatable assessment of the performance of fuels and lubricants. It is particularly suitable for wear testing relatively poor lubricants such as diesel fuels and for boundary friction measurements of engine oils, greases and other compounds. It […]

ABSSL

The Automated BOCLE System Scuffing Load (ABSSL) is a fully automated lubricity tester of diesel fuel. The Standard ABS test equipment can be modified for SL-BOCLE testing or ABSSL test equipment supplied as new. The ABSSL can be configured to meet the following standard test methods. ASTM D-6078 – Standard Test Method for Evaluating Lubricity […]

USV

The USV is a computer controlled instrument capable of fully automatic viscosity measurements up to 107 s-1 (reciprocal seconds). Accurate measurement of dynamic viscosity at very high shear rates is of particular concern in the Automotive Industry. Lubricants developed for motor vehicle applications are typically non-Newtonian making it necessary to reproduce the shear rate found […]
