Durometer Test Stand : DSD-Stand
DSD-Stand is used to improve the consistency of results during batch testing. Compatible with our DSD Durometers it allows users to control the load application force in line with ASTM standard requirements.
The DSD-STAND is compatible for use with the DSD-A and DSD-D durometers to provide a constant load pressure when testing which is important for consistent results as recommended by the ASTM D2240 standard. The test stand also overcomes the difficulty of repeatedly applying a consistent pressure when using a durometer as a hand only instrument, particularly over multiple tests and users.
The manual stand features a hydraulic lever system fixed to an adjustable height boom for adapting to a wide range of test piece heights. A test weight of 1Kg is suitable for Shore A testing and a weight of 4kg is used for the Shore D version of the DSD Stand to meet the standards for Shore D testing.
