• Pin and Vee Block Tester

Pin and Vee Block Tester



To evaluate wear preventative and load carrying properties of fluid lubricants, and endurance (wear) life of film lubricants.

  • Automatic Start of Test at Set Temperature
  • Over-Temperature and Over-Torque Protection
  • Maintenance of Test Speed within Specified Limits over entire Load Range
  • Calibration kit for Load, Torque, and Wear
  • High Performance Sensor to cover entire test load range with single load 56421cell with adequate resolution.

The Pin and Vee Block Tester consists of a rotating pin pressed between two stationary steel Vee blocks. Load is applied to the Vee blocks by a ratchet mechanism. Ramping of load during extreme pressure testing is made possible by auto advancement mechanism of ratchet. Pin and Vee blocks are immersed in lubricant fluid under test in heated test cup. Wear, torque and endurance life is evaluated accordingly. The Pin and Vee Block tester comes with data acquisition software. Test torque, load, temperature and wear are measured and recorded. The software permits users to view, compare and report various test results.
