The tool comes with the optional add on environmental chambers that can go from –40 to 1000 degree C, under vacuum or under humidity or gases.

Typical tests routinely run on the CETR testers include:

  • Bearing and its sub assemblies for wear and friction
  • Tire wear and friction at different velocities and temperature
  • Braking efficiency under different environmental conditions
  • Wiper blades wear and friction with and without water
  • Glass windows scratch hardness
  • Paint and adhesives for scratch and tape peel adhesion
  • Rubber for modulus and creep
  • Protective coatings on engine components for wear resistance
  • Piston liner for friction and wear studies
  • Engine parts for wear, hardness, and friction
  • Fretting under very low/high temperatures
  • Biodiesel nozzle, effect of viscous bio diesel
  • Gears and its components for wear and friction
