Taber Falling Sand Abrasion Tester

Taber Falling Sand Abrasion Tester

The Falling Sand Abrasion Tester is broadly used to measure the abrasion resistance of paint, lacquers and other organic coatings.

Based on a design described in ASTM D 968 and other internationally recognized test standards, the Falling Sand Abrasion Tester consists of an 8" diameter sand reservoir which includes a 60° taper funnel. Standardized abrasive particles placed in the reservoir are released to a guide tube by an abrasive flow gate key. The guide is a 36" straight, smooth-bore tube which contains the abrasive particles as they fall. Specimens are fixed under the guide tube at a 45° angle in a receptacle that includes an opening at the bottom allowing the abrasive particles to be collected in a container. A sturdy base and support system hold the apparatus in a vertical position.
