PHT-3300 Rebound Hardness Tester

The PHT-3300 is a rebound hardness tester with  that is  very compact, highly accuracy, wide measuring range and simplicity of operation. It is suitable for testing the hardness of all metals and widely applied in many industries. As with all dynamic portable hardness testers, it is designed to test very large hard parts. Steel should be close to 1″ thick of solid material, softer metals need even more mass. The PHT-3300 portable hardness tester combines the universal impact device D and a data processor in a single unit. It automatically computes all Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell, and Shore hardness values. USB output enables this model to print any of it’s memory from up to 500 groups. The impact direction can be set so that the accurate values can be achieved at any angle, even upside down! Statistical mean value is automatically provided.
