Dry Sand Wheel Abrasion Tester
To Test the abrasive resistance of solid materials to abrasive dry sand compositions. Materials such as metals, minerals, polymers, composites, ceramics, abrasives and thick coatings can be tested with this instrument. To develop a comparison table for ranking different materials with respect to each other, it is necessary to convert this mass loss to volume loss to account for the difference in material density.
