King Brinell Hardness Testers are portable, lightweight and versatile enough to test virtually any size and shape of metal specimen. Place the specimen between the anvil and the test head, crank the head down onto the specimen, lock the tester in place, close the pressure release valve, and pull the hydraulic lever until the desired load is reached. 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 King Deep Reading Microscope or a Kingscan Automatic Brinell Microscope.
King Brinell Portable Hardness Testers are available in "Complete Units" (described below) or you can buy the components separately to build a custom unit to suit your needs.
