Plint TE 77

Plint TE 77

  • A versatile reciprocating tribometer with a maximum stroke of 25 mm and maximum load of 1,000 N. It is now a well-established research and development tool for evaluation of lubricants, materials, coatings and surface treatments.
  • With the TE 77, sliding contact conditions can be matched to a number of machine elements. Specimens may either be of a standard format, or cut from real components, preserving surface finish and other properties.

  • The TE 77 was used for the inter laboratory tests for the development of ASTM G 133 "Standard Test Method for Linearly Reciprocating Ball on Flat Sliding Wear", which addresses the dry and lubricated wear of ceramics, metals and ceramic composites and also for ASTM G 181 "Standard Practice for Conducting Friction Tests of Piston Ring and Cylinder Liner Materials Under Lubricated Conditions".

 

Although not included in the inter laboratory test programs, the TE 77, in conjunction with selected adapters, can also accommodate tests specimens and provide test conditions as specified in the following standards:

  • ASTM D 5706 "Standard Test Method for Determining Extreme Pressure Properties of Lubricating Grease Using a High Frequency Linear-Oscillating Test Machine"
  • ASTM D 5707 "Standard Test Method for Measuring Friction and Wear Properties of Lubricating Grease Using a High Frequency Linear-Oscillating Test Machine"
  • ISO/DIN 12156-2 "Diesel Fuel Lubricity - Performance Requirement Test Method for Assessing Fuel Lubricity"
  • ASTM D 6079 "Standard Test Method for Evaluating Lubricity of Diesel Fuels by the High-Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR)"
