Published:  13 July, 2022

Industrial lubricant manufacturer, ROCOL, says it has once again shown that it is ahead of the competition after a research project carried out with Leeds and Bradford universities has received recognition from a leading global body.

The Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) has given product development engineer Dr Chris Dyson and his colleagues the Walter D. Hodson Award.

The award was given for the paper “Representative Tribometer Testing of Wire Rope Fretting Contacts: The Effect of Lubrication on Fretting Wear. This project was one output from several years of collaborative research on wire rope tribology between ROCOL, The School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds, and the Faculty of Engineering and Informatics at the University of Bradford.
