Gibitre™ Rotary Drum (Rotating Cylinder) Abrasion Tester: Description
Gibitre™ Rotary Drum (Rotating Cylinder) Abrasion Tester Gibitre™ Instruments
CCSi provides this high quality combination Rotary Drum Abrasion Tester for evaluating resistance to abrasion of rubber materials through the measure of volumetric loss of a specimen exposed to the action of a normalized abrasive medium secured to a rotating cylinder.
The Rotary Drum Abrasion Tester is manufactured according the specifications and requirements set forth in DIN 53516, ASTM D5963, and ISO 4649. The test specimen is rotated while it is moved laterally across the rotating cylinder. This assures uniform contact of the test specimen to the abrasive media and provides reliable, accurate and meaningful test determinations. Alternatively, the specimen holder may be locked into a fixed position.
The rotating cylinder assembly is designed for ease of disassembly to facilitate the replacement of the abrasion medium. Removable basins, that do not require cylinder removal, are situated below the cylinder to facilitate removal of the abraded material.
The Rotary Drum Abrasion Tester includes both 500 g and 1 kg weights. This ‘bench top’ tester features highly automated test cycles, is equipped with conveniently mounted instrument controls, and highly reliable motor and drive assemblies.
