What does TABER testing involve?

Author: Released in:2018-08-23 Click:838

The ”TABER test” was first introduced in the 1930's, and quickly gained popularity because of its ability to provide reliable data in a matter of minutes.

The test is performed using a Taber Rotary Platform Abraser and involves mounting a flat specimen to a turntable platform that rotates on a vertical axis at a fixed speed. Two Taber abrasive wheels, which are applied at a specific pressure, are then lowered onto the specimen surface. As the turntable rotates, characteristic rub-wear action is produced by contact of the test specimen against the sliding rotation of the two abrading wheels while a vacuum system removes loose debris.

The wheels traverse a complete circle on the specimen surface, and the resulting abrasion marks form a pattern of crossed arcs in a circular band that cover an area approximately 30 cm2.

With a selection of different abrading wheels and test loads, the Taber abraser is flexible enough to test wear resistance on a wide variety of materials. Simple to operate, the cost to perform testing is low compared to many other wear testing options, making this a viable option for any manufacturer interested in conducting wear tests.
