TH-500 Manual Rockwell Hardness Tester, bench mounted with analogue dial indicator. 

Used for determining the hardness of ferrous and non-ferrous metals such as hard alloy, carbon steel, alloy steel, cast iron. Suitable for quenched steel, tempered steel, annealed steel, cold and hard casting, malleable cast iron, hard alloy steel, aluminium alloy, copper alloy, bearing steel etc.

It is a popular instrument to measure the Rockwell hardness of the materials. No need for a power supply; the speed of the test force loading is regulated by the hydraulic piston and the test force is regulated by the load-change hand wheel. It has easy operation and stable performance applicable for use in factories, research laboratories and schools, colleges etc.
