Test for Gravel Impact
The Gravelometer was designed by an SAE committee comprised of major automotive manufacturers and suppliers. For more than 30 years, it has been used to accurately reproduce the damage caused by flying gravel. The Multi-Test Gravelometer (MTG) allows flexibility to perform all the major automotive chip-resistance tests with only one tester. The MTG offers enhanced control of test parameters and is easy and safe to operate
The MTG can be set-up with different modules to run different test methods and angles of impact. The modules include the Gun Assembly, Target Chamber and Specimen Holder.`The MTG can be changed from one configuration to another in less than three minutes. The MTG complies with SAE, ASTM, VDA, GM, Ford, Chrysler, Mazda, JIS, Nissan, VW and Toyota test methods. Any type of shot media can be used including gravel, chilled iron grit, steel shot and sand.
