King Portable Brinell Tester
On the market for over 80 years, the King Portable Brinell Tester is lightweight, easy to maneuver and require only one operator, making them ideal for use as portable units. Versatile enough to test virtually any size and shape of metal specimen, these testers are 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 tester applies up to a 3,000 kg load on a 10mm ball, making a lasting impression, which is available for re-reading at any time. A by-pass 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 KingScope or the KingScan IV automatic Brinell microscope.
