Seta-Shell 4-Ball Tester-Autoload, 19900-3

The Autoload Seta-Shell 4-Ball Lubricant Tester determines the friction properties of extreme pressure oils and greases. Used in tribology research laboratories and in the routine quality control of finished lubrication products.

A ball, mounted in a chuck, is rotated against three stationary balls in a pot containing the sample lubricant. The digital speed controller has three factory pre-programmed settings. A load, adjustable in the range of 40 to 800kgF, is applied to the balls via a balance beam and electric jack. The applied load is displayed on a digital readout. The torque transferred between the rotating and stationary balls is measured and displayed. The digital timer, with a range of 0.1 second to 9999 hours, can be used to control the duration of the test. If the torque exceeds a preset level, or the balls weld, during a test, power to the drive motor is automatically turned off.

Methods: ASTM D2266 & D4172, ASTM D2596, ASTM D2783, CEC L-45-A-99, DIN 51 350, EN ISO 20623, IP 239, ISO 26422, ISO CD 11008

The optional Seta 19940-0 Wear Loading Kit allows the user to quickly convert the equipment into a Four Ball Wear Tester for ASTM D2266 and D4172 tests.

Supplied with: 1000 IP 239 test balls (ISO 683-17, ISO 3290-1 Grade G5), torque wrench with adjusting key and certificate of calibration, and instruction manual.
