ETM Frictional Properties Under High Pressure
"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. The ETM allows testing up to 3.5 GPa with standard specimens in a compact, controlled environment. Measurement of the formation and removal of anti-wear tribofilms at high contact pressures
Studying the influence of very high shear stresses on lubricant/material chemistry (mechanochemistry)
Scuffing testing of lubricants, materials and surface finishes
Characterisation of lubricant properties for traction drive applications
Exploration of friction modifier behaviour at realistic contact pressures"
