New Phase II PHT-6000 Series Non-Destructive hand held portable hardness tester combines UCI Ultrasonic and Leeb portable hardness testing in one state of the art device!

Posted by Jeff Briley on

The PHT-6000 portable hardness testing device can be used to measure hardness on small, large, flat, round, thin or thick parts. This rugged unit is capable of testing softer metals such as copper and brass as well as hard metals and alloys while adhering to the strict ASTM A1038-10 guidelines for portable hardness testing using the UCI method. Checking coating hardness is also possible with this new portable hardness tester.

The test method is Non-Destructive which allows accurate testing on delicate or finely finished surfaces without physical or structural damage to the part, saving cost and resulting in less scrap.

This new portable UCI/Leeb hardness tester can easily convert and be calibrated to all the popular hardness scales such as, HRC, HRB, HRN, HRT, HB, and HV. Need to print your test results? USB output to a PC is built-in to this unit.

  • Test steel with min thickness of .08” and unlimited max thickness (Other materials may have larger minimum thickness levels, depending on hardness)
  • Blazing fast test results
  • Rockwell, Brinell and Vickers hardness test conversions shown on display
  • Large Memory w/USB Output
  • Choice of manual UCI probes; 1kg, 2kg, 5kg & 10kg
  • Optional Motorized Probes: .30kg, .80kg, & 1kgf
  • Available Impact Devices(Leeb) D, DC, D+15, G & DL

Diamond Spot Anvil

The Diamond Spot Anvil is primarily for supporting thin, soft metal and should only be used on a Superficial Rockwell Tester with a ball penetrator. The polished diamond flat surface standardizes the frictional effect between the anvil and the thin test material. Never use a "N" diamond indenter as damage to the indenter and/or diamond spot [...]

Vibration Testers Increase Productivity

Vibration is present in most, if not all, machinery in industry. It can be used as an indicator of a machine operating under normal or acceptable conditions and used as an indicator that something is going awry; such as a worn bearing or shaft misalignment. Identifying a problem before it gets out of hand is the key to reducing [...]

Rockwell History and Early Design

    The Rockwell Hardness Tester was designed in 1919 by Stanley P. Rockwell. He was a metallurgist in a New England ball bearing manufacturing plant. Until this time industry lacked a good method for measuring the hardness of ball bearing races and other hardened steel parts. Mr. Rockwell studied the problem and through experimentation for [...]

Rockwell Hardness Basics

 Hardness testing has been around for many years. Each method was developed based on needs such as the hardness of a certain material, part shape, thickness and/or part size. As with most things, one size does not fit all, so to speak, which is basically why there are many different variations of hardness test methods [...]

Thickness Measurements

Have you ever been tasked with something that seems nearly impossible to accomplish?Many engineers may seem like they have this problem when it comes time to measure the thickness of steel container or thick concrete building wall. These measurements can only be completed with the right measurement tools.Most thickness measurements are done with a ruler, [...]

Ultra Time Saver

Donald was a new hire in the quality department and one of his jobs was inspection of new material arriving at the plant daily. He would cut samples of the steel sheets and coil stock and carry them to the testing lab on the other side of the building. He used a Wilson Rockwell hardness [...]

Hardness Testing Defined

The resistance to permanent indentation is how hardness of metal is typically defined. A hardness test is that of a hard indenter pushing into a sample surface under a specific load for a set amount of time. A measurement is made of the size or depth of the indention. What is the main purpose of [...]

Casehardened Steel

Testing the hardness of case hardened steel provides important information about the hardness and depth of the case. The "case" is the harder outside layer and the inner part is called the "core". When testing hardened material it is very important that the depth of case is adequate to support the indenter properly. The case [...]
