RIC3 - Radio Isotope Concentration methode

Use of device

continuous wear measurement in the range of nm/h by means of activated components in real and model systems

Basic function

the components of a tribological system are activated in a cyclotron; the wear particles produced by the tribological process are transported to a detector via a lubricant circuit attached to the tribosystem; the amount of wear is determined from the measured activity throughout the period of operation

Result of analysis

wear depth and wear volume during operation

Goal of analysis

prediction of lifetime, wear resistance of components; wear protection due to lubricant properties

Technical specification

Sample requirement

activation of components

Light scattering system

Use of device

non-contact characterisation of surfaces

Basic function

during the measurement, an LED light source projects a tight spot of light of approximately 1 mm² onto the surface; the distribution of the back-scattered light directly depends on the topography of the surface

Result of analysis

form, waviness and roughness of tribological surfaces

Goal of analysis

quality control and process monitoring for surface finishing processes

Technical specification

measuring spot diameter: 0.9 mm (0.3 mm on request); measurement speed: < 2000 m/s; insensitive to working distance (+/- 1 mm)

Sample requirement

reflectivity
