High Pressure Tribometer

200 PSI High Pressure Tribometer with temperature control. Test lubricants and materials with various gases under high-pressure. Study friction and wear of various materials for valves, seals, liners, bearings, compressors and much more. Tester supports controlled test environments at high pressure. The tribological behaviour of high-pressure application products depends heavily on gas environment and pressure. Chemical reactions and dissolution rates play an important role in the processes at contacting surfaces. Rtec Instruments high pressure tribometer runs ball on disk and pin on disk tribology test under high pressure. Rigid chamber construction, wide load range up to 2000 N to simulate several high-pressure tribology applications.


Rtec Instruments

Rtec Instruments develops and manufactures advanced mechanical and surface testing and measurement solutions for research and industrial applications. They specialise in combining techniques that provide a unique perspective in material testing. Their testers include tribometer, profilometer, scratch tester, high-temperature indenter, and corrosion testers. Furthermore, their testers provide the most robust and versatile platform in the market for testing friction, wear, adhesion, hardness, roughness, and film thickness from nano to macro-scale.

Key Features

  • Up to 200 PSI pressure
  • Real-time down force control
  • In-line friction and wear
  • Patented capacitive high pressure force sensor
  • -35 to 100°C Temperature Range
  • Load Range 5 N to 2000 N


Real-time programmable force control, patented capacitive sensors to measure friction, in-line total wear scar depth, and temperature. The ease of use and safe operations makes this tester highly reliable and repeatable.

Temperature Control
Integrated chillers and heaters control test temperature from -35 to 100 °C during the test.

Force Sensors
The patented force sensor has no effect on force measurement due to high pressure or gases in the chamber. 

Each chamber is ASME certified and stamped for pressure rating.
