The Air Jet Erosion Test System controls a repeated impact erosion approach involving a small nozzle delivering a stream of gas containing abrasive particles which impact the surface of a test specimen. The amount of weight loss per unit of time represents the erosion or wear rate, providing laboratory scale erosion measurements under a range of conditions. The Test System may be used to rank the erosion resistance of materials, coatings, platings,
epoxies, weldments, sprays, paints, and similar products under the controlled conditions of the test.
The Air Jet Erosion meets the following standard test methods.
