Additional Info

  • Model: C129
  • Standards: EN 13748-2 DIN 52108 EN 14157 EN 13892-3 EN 1340 EN 1338:2004 EN1339

The instrument measures a volume loss in a specimen under abrasion test and it’s used in tests such as:

- paving stones
- concrete slabs
- slabs made of natural rocks
- natural stone slabs

The test is performed by positioning a specimen to be verified in a abrasion tester Böhme apparatus on the test track on which has been spread normalized abrasive; the grinding wheel it’s made rotate and the specimen submitted to the abrasive load of 294 N for a certain number of cycles. Before doing a test, establish the specimen’s bulk density by measuring weight and thickness. Perform the test for 16 cycles composed of 22 turn each, calculating at the end a worn as a average loss in volume and weight. The apparatus is basically composed of:

- cast iron horizontal disc with a speed of 30 rpm and a diameter of 750mm furnished of a 200mm test track to position a specimen.

- separate control panel with digital revolutions counter with automatic stop after preset revolutions

- specimen’s holder

- adjustable charger used to produce a force of 294 N ± 3 N on a specimen
