The measuring system is identical to the system build into the SARSYS Friction Tester (SFT).
The STFT is designed for an extreme long lasting operational life time. The frame is manufactured in stainless/acid proof steel and designed as a water tank with a volume of 560 litres, which gives a measuring distance of 7,000m.
There is no need for any extra installations to carry out measurement with water as all systems are standard in the STFT. The single axle has a rubber torsion suspension for low maintenance cost and long life time.
