Low-pressure test head for non-ferrous metals

This special head has all the accuracy and durability of the standard head, but the applied load and the indicator dial are coordinated for softer metals. Tests can be factory calibrated to loads of 1000kg, 500kg, 250kg, 125kg, or 62 ½ kg.

External Calibration Assembly

This assembly allows the customer to calibrate the tester without accessing the oil system and potentially contaminating or losing any necessary oil. (Pictures show disassembled and assembled system)

A standard King test head assembled with a special ram that extends a full 2 inches beyond the range of the normal ram. It’s designed to test into recessed areas or to adapt to work that has a raised edge.

Adapter to reverse direction of load
Adapter to reverse direction of load

Consists of an interchangeable anvil holding the 10mm ball and a cap which screws on the ram. For making Brinell hardness tests inside pipes, tubes and other interior locations impossible to reach. Clear, sharp impressions are obtained and easily read with offset microscope especially designed for this use.

Adapter to hold standard test head upright without base
Adapter to hold standard test head upright without base

Using this adapter, the test head can be used under large drill presses, boring mills, beams capable of withstanding the 3000kg load. This adapter holds the test head straight so that only one operator is required.

5/2.5 mm Ball Adapter
5/2.5 mm Ball Adapter

For special applications, this adapter holding a 5mm ball easily replaces the standard 10mm ball. The 5/2.5 mm ball and a 750kg load covers the same hardness range as a 10mm ball with a load of 3000kg. This adapter is used for testing tool steel and also parts where a small impression is desired.

Stroke Limiter
Stroke Limiter

This device limits the travel of the pump handle which prevents potential damage to the internal gear mechanism.

IMPORTANT: STANDARD EQUIPMENT FURNISHED: The King Tester with standard base is shipped complete with all necessary instructions and maintenance manual, conversion tables, operating handle and set of three anvils (flat, vee, and dome). The tester is equipped with a 10mm steel Brinell ball and the hydraulic reservoir is filled. The instrument is ready to operate.

PLEASE NOTE: The price of the Brinell hardness tester does not include the Brinell microscope, which can be ordered at any time. The Brinell microscope is furnished with a blow-molded plastic case and an upright adapter, but does not include the stage micrometer used for checking the calibrations of the microscope.
