Friction Apparatus Description and Specifications for Lab Tenders
Investigate the relationship between the friction force and the surfaces in contact.
Compare the value of the coefficient of sliding friction between dry surfaces of various materials.
Compare the value of the coefficient of sliding friction between dry and lubricated surfaces
Compare the force of friction between sliding and rolling surfaces.
Compare the force of friction between “Hard” and “Soft” rolling surfaces.
It is constituted of a shaft with a wheel and two disks equipped with rollers, one of the disks turning in an oil bath.
Five different material blocks are provided as standard (rubber, ferodo, brass, cast iron, nylon).
These blocks are set under an arm. A
mass support hung to the extremity of this arm applies a load on the
surface in contact. The friction strength and the friction coefficient
are determined by the maximal mass applicable to the wheel to maintain
the static balance.
Two wheels, of which one with a strip rubber, are provided for the study of sliding and rolling resistance.
Optional equipment :
The unit may be wall mounted or fitted to the Universal Bench Mounting Frame.
