Hardness Tester

Order no.: PCE-900-ICA

The Leeb Portable Metal Hardness Tester PCE-900-ICA measures the hardness of nine different metals using the Leeb rebound method. This means that with the material hardness tester a firing pin bounces on a metallic surface and the intensity of the rebound is used as an indicator of the material hardness. The Portable Metal Hardness Tester measures the metal hardness in 6 different hardness scales.

Order no.: PCE-HT-450
The concrete hardness tester is an analog measuring device to determine concrete strength. The measuring method of the concrete hardness tester is based on the Schmidt principle. With this measuring method, a kinetic impact energy hits the concrete from the concrete hardness tester. The resulting rebound enables the concrete hardness tester to determine the strength of the concrete.

- Nominal kinetic energy: 4.5 J
- For high-strength concrete
- Simple and quick operation
- For determining concrete hardness
- Schmidt principle
