This Reichert test method covers the procedure for determining wear properties (WP) and Extreme pressure properties (EP) to evaluate lubricant and additives.
- Frictional force - 2N to 200N
Normal load - 50N to 500N (in steps of 50N) –dead weights
RPM: 50 to 1500 rpm (continuously variable through AC Frequency drive)
Temperature: Ambient to 1200C
Temperature sensor: RTD
Sliding speed: 0.85 to 2.50 m/s
Friction wheel dia: 31.4 dia x 10mm length
Test roller: 12mm dia x 15mm length
Preset timer: 99hrs:59min:59sec
Acoustic sensor: To measure noise level 10μ least count 10mm range: To measure the radial wear
Dial indicator: Sample volume - 25ml approx.
