Maintenance, Precautions and Classification of Hardness Tester

Maintenance and Precautions of Hardness Tester

1. The test personnel should follow the operating procedures and  use standard block to test hardness tester before and after experiment.

2. Not often used hardness tester should under going hardness measurement for several times before start using. When it is stable, you can start the determination of the specimen.

3. The use of hardness blocks can only be carried out on the face, the test point of each test distance should be no less than 3mm.

4. In the hardness test, the main test force should be smooth without impact.

5. The hardness tester should be kept cleaning. Hardness block, the ball pressure head should be coated with anti-rust oil after using to prevent corrosion.

6. Doing cycle test work for hardness tester at least once a year to ensure the accuracy of the hardness.

7. Hardness tester common troubleshooting: you should contact with the relevant units to repair the hardness tester failure. In general, common failure can be resolved by yourself.
