Our three research laboratories in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at Ryerson University house a wide variety of equipment for studying abrasive jet technology and solid particle erosion phenomena. We are available for contract work, but greatly prefer research collaborations in which publication is possible.
Our equipment includes:
Comco Inc. Accuflo abrasive jet micro-machining setup. The apparatus can be adapted to be ASTM G76 erosion testing compliant. We also have a custom made cryogenic abrasive jet micro-machining setup. Photo by Kavin Kowsari.
