HFRR

A ball-on-plate reciprocating friction and wear test system, assessing the performance of both fuels and lubricants under boundary conditions

MTM

A ball-on-disc instruments for measuring the frictional properties of lubricated and unlubricated contacts under a wide range of rolling and sliding conditions

ABS

A fully automated Ball-on-Cylinder ( BOCLE ) wear test system which provide a fast, repeatable assessment of the lubricity of aviation fuels

EHD

A fully automated, benchtop instrument measuring lubricant film thickness down to 1nm in elestohydrodynamic (EHD) lubricating regime.

EHD-HS

A high speed (up to 20m/s), fully automated, benchtop instrument measuring lubricant film thickness down to 1nm in the elastohydrodynamic (EHD) lubricating regime. 

HFRR, MTM & ABS Specimens

HFRR

HFRR

A microprocessor controlled ball-on-plate reciprocating friction and wear test system to provide fast, repeatable assessment of the performance of fuels and lubricants under boundary conditions. With the wear scar camera package, allows to capture calibrated images of the wear scar and measure the wear scar direct on the PC screen. It is the world standard for testing diesel fuel Lubricity and conforms to ASTM D6079, CECF-06-A, ISO12156, EN590, IP450, JPI-5S-50
PCS Instruments is the only instrument supplier specified on the following test methods: ISO 12156, ASTM D6079, ASTM D7688.

MTM
MTM

MTM

The MTM is the most versatile instrument with a wide range of applications such as improving fuel economy and engine efficiency, developing new formulations for railway greases, reducing the wear of artificial joints and perfecting the mouth feel of food and the skin feel of cosmetics
Optimising the friction and wear properties of a system can significantly improve the performance and reduce operating costs. Testing lubricants and materials under realistic contact conditions is imperative to understanding where improvements can be made.
 

ABS
ABS

Automated BOCLE System ( ABS )

The ABS is an automated jet fuel lubricity tester which performs the ASTM D5001 standard test ( Measurement of Lubricity of aviation Turbine Fuels by Ball-on-Cylinder Lubricity Evaluator ). This test is used to assess the lubricating properties of aviation fuels

Being a named instrument in the ASTM D5001 standard test, the ABS represents the industry leading rig in repeatable reliable fuel lubrication testing

EHD-HS

EHD-HS 

The EHD-HS operates at up to 20m/s, measuring lubricant film thickness down to 1nm in the elastohydrodynamic lubricating regime. Without a doubt the EHD-HS represents the cutting edge of lubricant film testing

The ability of the EHD-HS to run at speeds up to 20m/s makes it a fantastic choice for researchers studying high speed applications such as electric vehicle drivetrains, and to study the effect of additives in automotive lubricants, metalworking fluids, emulsions, turbine oils and greases.
