The King Portable Brinell Tester is versatile enough to test virtually any size and shape of metal specimen. Easy to use, the operator simply places the specimen between the anvil and the test head, cranks the test head down onto the specimen, locking the tester in place, closes the pressure release valve, and pulls the hydraulic lever until desired load is reached.
The King Portable Brinell Tester applies up to a 3,000 kgf load on a 10mm 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 either a Brinell Microscope such as the KingScope or the KingScan IV automatic Brinell microscope. With the ability to mix and match bases and heads, a variety of microscopes, and accessories the King Portable Brinell Tester is completely customizable to fit your testing and reading needs. All King Brinell Metal Hardness Testers are certified and calibrated per ASTM E10 standards
