Ice Adhesion Tester

Ice Adhesion Tester


Ice Adhesion Test Rig is used to measure the Adhesion of Ice on different surfaces. The test surface is in the form of a cylinder and ice is formed in an annular space between the test surface and a standard surface.


Evaluate & compare the relative performance of materials and surface coatings based on their ability to aid in ice removal.
Test the effectiveness of de-icing method.
Repeat testing to measure durability.
