TMI 32-91 Lab Master® Slip & Friction Tester with Elevator System

Product Ref: TMI 32-91

The Lab Master® Slip and Friction Tester with Elevator System is designed to precisely determine the friction characteristics of a variety of materials. The instrument removes operator variability from the test procedure with specially designed features to control sled placement rate, orientation/angle, dwell time, and removal.

Introduction

The 32-91 Lab Master® Slip and Friction Tester with Elevator System is designed to precisely determine the friction characteristics of a variety of materials. The instrument removes operator variability from the test procedure with specially designed features to control sled placement rate, orientation/angle, dwell time, and removal.

The new Windows™-based software features the ability to create user-defined test setup with built-in ASTM, ISO and TAPPI methods, individual test speed selection for both static and kinetic COF, exporting capabilities of graphs or data to Microsoft Excel® and SPC files, and enhanced calibration-verifies existing and new calibration, and keeps a log for ISO record-keeping.

Standards

ASTM D 1894, ASTM D 4521, DIN 53375, ISO 15359, ISO 8295, TAPPI T 549, TAPPI T 816
