Abrading Wheels

Changing the abraser wheels and change the test! – Selecting the Abrading Wheels

Taber® Abrading Wheels are available in five levels of abrasiveness to suit a wide range of material testing applications.

Wool, felt or plain rubber wheels test delicate materials or abrasiveness of materials such as dental powders.

Wheels featuring abrasive particles in a resilient matrix of rubber or a hard matrix of vitrified clay are suitable for stiffer materials.

  • Calibrase® : resilient abrasive wheel – rubber and aluminium oxide
  • Calibrade®: a non-resilient abrasive wheel – vitrified clay and silicon carbide
  • Wool Felt: contains no abrasive particles
  • Plain Rubber: contains no abrasive particles unless used with sandpaper strips
  • Tungsten Carbide: severe cutting and tearing action with helical teeth for use on resilient materials such as rubber, leather and floor coverings

Elcometer 5135 5155 Taber Rotary Abrasion Testers Multi-Media Attachment Multi-Media Attachment

This attachment is used to recreate contact surface wear caused by liquids, fluids and powders. Measures the abrasivity of materials including paints, pigments, adhesives, sealants, pastes, additives etc. If you require either the Elcometer Taber® 5135 or Taber® 5155 ready assembled with the Multi-Media Attachment, please contact Elcometer.

Part Number: ST985500

Elcometer 5135 5155 Taber Rotary Abrasion Testers Sample Cutter Sample Cutter

The Model 5000 Sample Cutter will cut a precise 106mm circular sample with a 6.35mm centre hole to prepare your specimens for use with the Elcometer Taber® Abrasers. An easy counter-clockwise cutting motion allows you to cut a variety of materials. Optional pads, which allow cutting thicknesses of 0.03mm to 6.35mm, are also available.

Part Number: ST985000

Elcometer 5135 5155 Taber Rotary Abrasion Testers Grit Feeder Attachment Grit Feeder Attachment

Provides a unique method to evaluate 3-body abrasion resistance on a variety of materials. Aluminium oxide grit particles are evenly distributed on to the specimen wear path and pass under a pair of leather wheels. This loose grit acts as an abradant aiding the action that contributes to the physical breakdown of materials.

The Abraser Vacuum is attached to the grit feeder and continuously removes both abraded material and used grit.

The Grit distributor and vacuum removal nozzle heights are adjusted using a thumbscrew.

Two versions are available, Model 155 and Model 255. The Model 155 uses an alignment guide screw to set the position of the instrument. An alignment block is incorporated into the base of Model 255, to ensure the correct location of the grit feeder in relation to the Abraser.

Both models are supplied complete with:

  • S-39 Leather wheel set
  • S-38 Standardisation Plates
  • S-41 #240 Aluminium oxide
  • Alignment guide and mounting hardware
