Nothing beats King Brinell for accuracy, versatility, durability, and affordability.



 The King Brinell is designed to make impressions that are used to measure the hardness of a metal. A universally recognized tester, the King portable Brinell has a number of advantages.

  • Permanence - Impression can be checked and rechecked at any time.

  • Accuracy - Calibrated accurate to 1/2 of 1% of load. Can be used for higher loads up to 1,000 kg. 

  • Durability - Some King Portable Brinell testers have been working for over 60 years.

  • Versatility - Can be used in virtually any position: right side up, upside down or sideways. Take the tester to the metal, not the metal to the tester

On the market for over 60 years, King Brinell units are lightweight, easy to maneuver and require only one operator, making them ideal for use as portable or bench units.

Easy To Use.

Versatile enough to test virtually any size and shape of metal specimen, King testers are easy to use. The operator simply sets the unit on top of the test specimen, wraps the chain around the specimen and locks it in place, tightens the hand wheel to take up the slack in the chain and force the tester head onto the specimen. closes the pressure release valve, and pulls the hydraulic lever until the desired load is reached. The unit applies up to a 1,000 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 a Brinell microscope such as the King Deep Reading 20X Microscope or a Kingscan Automatic Brinell Microscope.

Quality Product.

The King Portable Brinell meets all international standards for Brinell testing including ASTM E-110, British Standard #240, Pt. 2, Sect. 1 and JIS Standards, and is calibrated to 1/2 of 1% of load on equipment traceable to NIST Standards.
