Taber Scuffing Head Attachment

Mounted on the left hand abraser arm mount, a scuffing head and weight are used in place of the abrading wheels. As the table rotates, the scuffing head is dragged across the specimen surface.

A bracket is attached to the Taber Rotary Platform Abraser and mounted to the inside riser mount of the left abraser arm. The scuffing head is held at a 100° angle to the specimen holder.

The vertical centre line of the scuff head is positioned 32 mm from the specimen holder centre pin, and is centred under a weight (0.45kg or 0.9kg) in a horizontal alignment with the centre pin.  The Taber Abraser is operated in the normal fashion, but with the abraser arms stored in the upright position and the vacuum system not utilized. As the specimen holder rotates, the scuffing head is dragged over the specimen surface.
