A range of impact devices that can be quickly interchanged to offer an expanded range of testing capabilities for the LHT-160 and LHT-200 series portable hardness tester.
Considerations for optional impact devices may include non-standard hardness, thickness of the sample. Accessibility and surface roughness may also be considered.
The standard supply is a D-Type Impact device which is suitable for most general testing.
Below are a list of the different devices and their application:
D Type - This is the standard supply and are used in 90% of applications. It is a good general use device and works on material that is greater than 5mm of thickness.
C Type - For small and light weight samples from above 1mm of thickness depending on the material. They are also better for testing materials with surface hardened layers as the C-type applies a lower impact force when testing.
DC Type - Designed for applications where there is reduced height accessibility. It is much shorter than the standard unit with all the functionality of the D-type impact device.
DL Type - Long nose type is designed to gain access in areas that other gauges cannot. Places like ring grooves, gear teeth, long channels, holes and recesses are some of the areas that this unit is perfect for.
G Type - This unit is designed for rough, heavy objects such as raw castings. It has a heavy duty device that allows for Brinell testing an uneven, unpolished surface often found at foundries.
