Rockwell Hardness Testing
Rockwell Hardness testing measures the permanent depth of the indentation produced by a known force / load of the indenter.
Testing is done to our SOP’s at a minimum which meet or exceed ASTM E-18 & ASTM E-110.
Customer site testing can be done with the use of our portable Clark CPTXL equipment. Rockwell Hardness testing is used to ensure material integrity meets established requirements of material MTR’s / engineering specifications.
- Rockwell scales of A, B, C, E, F and H
- Portable Clark CPTXL
- Stationary Clark CR-1A
Advantages of Rockwell Hardness Testing:
- Results can be used to meet some industry requirements for MTR’s
- Parts are not damaged as in the Brinell Hardness Testing method
