High Temperature Tribometer (THT)

Anton Paar has expanded its Tribometers with the introduction of powerful High Temperature Tribometers (THT) that can accurately simulate in-service conditions.

For the development and control of combustion engine and power plant constituent parts, it is critical to analyze the friction and wear properties of materials at high temperature.

Anton Paar’s THT is designed to meet the demands of quantitative data at high thermal conditions.

THT 1000°C features a unique dual heating element layout which makes the instrument highly reliable and stable to temperature tribology. It facilitates differential friction force measurement that provides negligible signal drifts at elevated temperatures.

In addition, the ergonomic design of THTs enable safe and efficient tribological testing at temperatures as high as 1000°C.
