During abrasive wear in the surface layers of the material, repeated deformation of local areas by abrasive particles occurs.
Wyzenbeek abrasion test method is carried out on a special machine. The test sample, i.e. a sample processed according to experimental technology, fixed, square section 10 x 10 x 30 mm is fixed in a special fixture. A reference sample in the form of a roller 50 mm in diameter and 12 mm wide is attached to the rotating shaft. Samples are lubricated by dipping a part of the roller into a bath of industrial oil, to which quartz dust of a certain dispersion is added. After completion of the test, determine the depth of the hole formed on the test sample. The shallower the hole depth, the higher the wear resistance.
