King Portable Brinell Hardness Testers are lightweight, easy-to-maneuver, and require only one operator, making them ideal for use as portable or bench units. These durable and accruate testers are versatile enough to test virtually any size and shape of metal specimen.
The tester applies 0-3000 kg loads on a 10 mm ball, making a lasting impression, which is available for re-reading at any time. A bypass valve is automatically activated at the calibrated load, eliminating the chance of overloading. The impression is then read and recorded by the operator using a Brinell microscope such as the 20X Deep-Reading microscope or available computer-based measurement system. The King Portable Brinell meets all international standards for Brinell testing, including ASTM E-10, ASTM E110, ISO 17025, British standard #240, part 2, sect. 1, and JIS standards, and is calibrated to 1/2 of 1% of load on equipment traceable to NIST standards.
Vertical capacity 342mm/ 13.5in, 100mm / 4in horizontal - Quality Bourdon-type pressure guage which indicates true load exerted by pump.
