This machine is used to produce accelerate polishing, conforming to Standards, of stone chippings set onto the periphery of a special revolving wheel.  After the cycle, involving two grades of emery powder, the polished specimens are tested on the skid tester (see links below) which gives the PSV, Polished Stone Value.
