Taber Rotary Abrasers 1700 / 1750

The 'Test Taber' provides reliable data within minutes. Used to assess a material's resistance to wear, a flat sample is mounted on a turntable that rotates on a vertical axis. As the platen rotates, contact of the sample against the sliding rotation of two grinding wheels causes wear while a vacuum system removes loose wear debris during testing. The abrasion marks form a pattern of crossed arcs in a circular band that covers an area of approximately 30 cm².
