Designing and manufacturing equipment for the testing of fuels and lubricants.
PCS Instruments are global leaders in the tribology test equipment industry. Established in 1987, we design and manufacture cutting edge instruments for analysing the properties of lubricants and fuels.
Our instruments give researchers the tools to benchmark their products against market leading brands, and play a pivotal role in the development of world class lubricants, materials and formulations.
We have a worldwide client base, spanning over 90 countries, of users performing to ISO and ASTM test methods as well as specialised tribology research in a wide range of industries.
We support our products either directly from the UK or through our extensive network of trained distributors, which ensures all our customers receive fast, reliable service and support.
Compact, benchtop and highly automated, our instruments require minimal lab space and user intervention.
Intuitive software applications make defining and running different test profiles a straightforward task.
Simple test setup and calibration procedures help users to produce fast, repeatable results and reduce training time.
Test data can be easily imported into other applications for further analysis.
