High-Frequency Reciprocating Rig Module (HFRR) for the Bruker UMT TriboLab
A new High-Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) module is now available for the Bruker UMT TriboLab mechanical tester. This enables you to perform materials qualification tests and lubricant screening in your lab on a benchtop system.Follow @blue_scientific
High-Frequency Reciprocating Rig Module
With the new High-Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) module you can perform tests at benchtop scale on the Bruker UMT TriboLab:
- Wide range of materials qualification tests
- Lubricant and material screening
Assess the performance of lubricants and surfaces under simulated conditions while monitoring changes in friction, simulating standard protocols such as ASTM D6245.
Testing surfaces and lubricants on reciprocating systems such as engines and linear compressors usually requires large laboratory-scale tribometers. Using the new HFRR Module, samples can now be tested at benchtop scale – making it a much more convenient option for your lab.
Bruker UMT TriboLab
Bruker’s UMT TriboLab is the most versatile and widely used tribometer platform, first established in 2000. The current model is a modular system offering more functionality than ever before. It’s a practical, cost-effective solution for the development of lubrication materials.
Equipping the tribometer with the new HFFR module gives you high-precision data analysis under unique conditions, as well as meeting the requirements of ASTM and similar protocols. Friction data is presented as an absolute number, and you can also identify subtle variations along the reciprocating stroke.
