Analog Brinell, Rockwell, Vickers Hardness Tester NOVOTEST TB-BRV

Analog Universal Brinell, Rockwell, Vickers Hardness tester is designed for hardness testing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and hard alloys. Hardness tester TB-BRV can be used in industry, scientific research laboratories and workshops. It’s new design, provides high usability. The device provides high repeatability of the results and is very easy to use.

This hardness tester uses a multi-stage test load and different types of indenter to measure and determine the hardness value of tests products by Brinell, Rockwell and Vickers scales. The device can be used for hardness testing of ferrous metals (steel, cast iron, low carbon steel and tempered steel, etc) and non-ferrous metals (alloys from aluminum, copper, etc). It is also suitable for the hardness testing of hard alloys, carbonized and chemically treated layers. The microscope is built in. Hardness tester provides the high sensitivity and accuracy of the load level, and the high accuracy of the measuring values.

  • Hardness tester TB-BRV is one of the easiest device in operating and servicing, but at the same time it is universal and multi-functional instrument in its class. User can measure hardness in various scales and have no problems with hardness measurement in a wide range – from very soft materials up to some of the hardest materials.
  • Hardness tester is supplied with a special table which allows user to measure the diameters of prints without removing the sample from the device. The hardness tester has special stand for the microscope, which significantly simplifies operating the device.
  • The device has an electric actuator – the main test load is completely automated.
  • The device allows user to maximize the efficiency of the using portable hardness testers. Using this device user can verificate standard hardness test blocks and calibrate portable hardness testers according to any of the most popular hardness scales.
