To ensure we maintain our winning technology competitive edge Race-Tec has a multi-station test facility for rotary seal applications.
It is used for research, validation and accelerating product development. Using multiple test heads comparative testing can be completed to evaluate the effects of changing lubricants, shaft surface conditions and seal technology simplifying product changes.
Each head is computer controlled with full data logging capabilities allowing a combination:
- Pressure testing to 170 bar(g)
- Vacuum 25Hg.in
- High speed to 25,000 rpm
- Temperature control
Post testing Race-Tec offers full testing traceability and through investment in the latest inspection and measuring technologies allows accurate measurement product dimensional characteristics using a multi sensor coordinate measuring machine. Including:
- Post testing validation reports
- Seal lip wear analysis
- Shaft surface profile traces Ra (µm), Rz & Rpm
- Race-Tec testing facility is an invaluable part our development process
