Portable Hardness Tester : Time TH-170 Series
• Integrated handheld hardness tester
• Top industry selling device for over 20 years
• On-board memory
• Accuracy ±6 HLD
Take the tester to the job. The TH-170 series portable hardness tester series are ideal for use in applications where bench mount hardness testers can't be used. The TH-170 is powered by AA batteries and has on-board memory making it ideal for use in the field or the factory floor.
Using rebound technology, results are measured in the LEEB Scale (HL) which can then be converted and displayed directly in common scales: Rockwell C, Rockwell B, Brinell, Vickers & MpA. Metals that can be tested include Steel, Stainless steel, Aluminium, copper and other variations.
The TH-170 uses a D type impact device for general purpose testing of metal samples greater than 5mm thickness.
Featuring a C-type impact device and a lighter impact force the TH-172 can test samples from 1mm thickness provided they are coupled. Samples that are not coupled can lose rebound energy through vibration which can result in a lower hardness reading.
To test in hard to reach locations we recommend the TH-174. The needle point indenter is ideal for accessing deep recessed and other narrow shaped surfaces such as teeth on gears, o-ring grooves or any notched or stepped parts.
