Wear measurement on special shaft

dry-tech® polymers iglidur® X and J prove their worth with low coefficients of wear in a test with a customer's special shaft.

wear measurement  
Starting situation:

In order to be able to offer the tribologically best customer solution, the wear behaviour of drylin® liners made of iglidur® X (XUM) and J (JUM) are tested directly on the customer's shaft from 1.4301. The two liners run linearly for 310 km on the special shafts and are then measured.

Test results:

The result of the investigation is that the two materials have very low wear rates but iglidur® X stands out due to its extremely low rate of 0.21 µm/km. Due to the test carried out on the special shafts under realistic conditions for the customer, the suitability of the shafts was confirmed and the best material to be recommended (in this case iglidur® X) was determined.
