Abrasion test facilities: a review

Author

Abstract
Prediction of abrasion resistance with increased accuracy is essential to precisely estimate the operating life of a component. It has always been an intriguing challenge, as the wear results from laboratory testing and real time operations are widely mismatched, especially due to the dearth of suitable and reliable testers. There is a need to bridge this gap by developing apt testers with enhanced dependability and improved predictability. A concise review of over 100 papers was performed and testers based on the standards like ASTM G99, G132 or G65 were mostly used. The abrasion test facilities have been broadly classified into four categories based on the testing aspects viz., type of abrasion (two- / three body), contact kinematics (sliding/rolling/reciprocating/impact), contact medium (dry/wet/slurry), and customized abrasion testers. The noteworthy observations to be mentioned are; firstly the existence of a number of standard, non-standard as well as customized testers. Secondly, only few standards prescribe the relevance of test facility to a particular end-application. Lastly, there exists a lack of clear understanding of the interdependencies between the test facilities and even if it exists, is inconclusive. The vital reflection from the study is the existence of a missing link in connecting the laboratory test parameters to the real operating conditions or vice versa. The task of development of this vital link is the fundamental foundation for the future work.
